View Full Version : Posion The Well

Hmmm. I can't seem to find the answer to this question anywhere else, so i thought I might try here. Does anyone know the specs on Chris Hornbrook's (Poison The Well's drummer) OCDP kit?
Any help would be appreciated.

probably the same as barkers.....

All I know is that Chris plays: OCDP drums, DW pedals and hardware, Zildjian cymbals, Vic Firth sticks, Remo heads, other than that, I do not know the detailed specs. I wish somebody from the Modern Drummer staff would hang out here from time to time, they can probably answer these questions in detail, provide more photos, and point you to a past issue of a feature on a particular drummer, if they have one.

aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa yes another fond chris hornbrook fan, gotta love his style and technique...hes has some amazing chops and is probly one of the top hardcore drummers out there right now. well ive done the research and made a couple contacts with the guys over at OCDP and one of the reps wrote me back with all of his specks...here ya go hope your happy, and if your looking to buy the same exact set from OC expect to throw up about $3,500-4,000 for your set!

8x12 tom, 16x14 floor tom, 18x16 floor tom, 20x22 bass. The two floor toms are 2" over square. The snare drum is a 7x14 20ply vented with small holes

20 x 22... is that depth x diameter? or vice versa?

yup depthxdiameter

just wonderin, but technically, what is the correct way to write drum sizes?


02-19-2003, 08:16 PM
How to size them correctly? As far as I know, it's just how you write em. Doesn't matter. But I could be wrong.

x and y
width and height
diameter and depth

There's no wrong way, it's just more common and logical to say the diameter first because it's more important and it's the first thing a person would notice if he or she sat behind a new drumset.

But alot of companies when ordering are the other way. The problem i find is people dont stick to one way of saying there sizes. If i said i had an 8x10 tom, i could mean an 8" deep by 10" OR the other way around.
I have stuck to the industry standard of the first number is depth and the second number is diameter. Thats how it is for Tama, OCDP and DW. Pearl mentions sizes that way in there ads, but on the site under kit specs, they list it backwards from everyone else.

I finally got an e mail back from OCDP themselves. It turns out his kit is 20x22, 8x12, 14x14, 16x16, 7x14 30 ply vented snare. Tanks for all your help.

As far as the "correct" way to list drum sizes, I don't know if there is a "correct" way, I usually give diameter first but you will often see the depth listed first. When in doubt consider this, drums are almost never deeper than the diameter. I have seen (rarely) an exception on bass drums.

posion the well rule sorry i cant help

i know a guy with a 14"x16" floor tom. 14" being the diameter.

why is this in the session section? we're not even talking about Pearl drums.
