    Question Virgil Donati

    Hey Carl... I was wondering if you, or anybody else, could tell me when Virgil Donati starting playing Pearl. I'd like to know if he recorded any of the Planet X stuff with Pearls.

    Also, what's the specs on his kit? His website says he plays an MRX... but it would seem he would use a MW, especially considering that one of his kits is seafoam green with black hardware.

    Thanks

    DaddyRock98,

    Virgil came onboard with us around
    May of 2002. He had been using our
    Eliminator pedals for some time before
    he decided to make the switch in drums.
    The latest release, Moon Babies was
    recorded before Virgil was using Pearl
    drums. You can catch Virgil on tour with
    the supergroup CAB.
    The seam foam green kit you referred to
    is a custom color BRX Series kit with black
    hardware. His regular configuration is
    as follows:

    22x18 bass drum
    12x10 tom
    10x9 tom
    16x16 floor tom
    18x16 floor tom
    14x12 tom (left of HH)
    14x5.5 snare drum
    10x4 snare drum

    Thanks,

    Thumbs up

    Cool, thanks Derek.

    I can't wait to hear a recording with him using the Pearls.
