    Nope. I dont like matching snares. I have the matching snare for both of my acoustic kits, and i almost never use them because i dont like the way matching snares look. And i have no problem using a different companys snare on my kit. I used to be like that, but since none of the companys pay me, ill use whatever brand i please. I also use pearl demon drive pedals with my tama iron cobra hi hat stands. and all of my tama hardware is mounted to a Gibraltar rack. I have a couple of other pearl snares too, with the intent of the next snare i get, will probably be a mapex or DW. Theres too many awesome snares out there to limit myself to one brand.

    Everybody has their own taste and perspective.

    I have several matching Pearl MW snares for my Pearl MW kits (in different sizes) which I usually use. However, I have a bunch of other Pearl snare drums that go with the color of my kit (even though the finish isn't the same). I prefer not to use something that doesn't coordinate with the color of the kit. I'd rather play Pearl snares and use Pearl hardware.

    I've also made a number of custom snare drums of various metals and woods that I match with Pearl hardware and badges. Just my preference ...

    I like those Pro-Line snare racks in your photo. I use a bunch of those too.

    It used to really bother me if everything i had didnt match. Even my snares all had to be tama for a time (or pearl when i had a pearl session custom when i was younger) but i have a 3 year old now and am fortunate enough to be able to still put a lot of money into my hobby, but i dont have the energy to worry about brand loyalty anymore. If tama racks werent so ridiculously expensive, id probably still be that way, but after i put my kit on a gibraltar rack, i kind of just stopped caring about the brand, as long as it functioned as it should and sounds great. Actually my low key favorite snare i own is my Pearl session studio select snare. And it was one of my cheaper snares, and kind of shallow compared to how i prefer snare drums. I find its whats on my set most often, and it doesnt match my kit in the slightest.

    I had to give up brand loyalty when I had all Tama hardware but loved Pearl drums and I wanted to play them. Now I use a combination of Pearl Drums with Pearl+Tama+Hardware Store Hardware with a DW pedal.

    But I have to draw the line with cymbals! That needs to all be the same. MM, any suggestions to replace the new SABIAN logo with old one? (I bought a SABIAN Cymbal Refresh kit, but the review said it was not worth the money )

    Hi,

    Thanks for asking. I don't have any suggestion (other than considering just removing the logos entirely).

    I play only Zildjian cymbals (except for Aegean R-series quiet cymbals).

    Few additions in the last few weeks

    - 28" Pro racket wheeled hardware case (my previous spare has finally bitten the dust, was cheap in the first place so i'm wanting something much nicer to transport my perc rig in).

    - Natal Pure Stave Walnut 14x5.5" snare, used on a gig last week, sounding mint.

    - Pearl BC-150 boom stand, was in the sale, and couldn't pass it up.

    And finally the biggie for this year, custom moulded Cosmic Ears CE3P triple driver IEMs, absolutely blew my old Shures away can't fault the quality. Done in a custom smoke shell with flesh faceplates, nice and sleek.

    Currently just using them for snare and cymbals, with standard pro racket/ahead armor for everything else, but i'll likely convert my main kit to all AAAs when funds allow.

    Yes, they are expensive. It's taken me a couple of years to gather them all. Not to mention, some sizes have to be special ordered and are not available in the USA.

    The only distributor here in the USA for Protection Racket is KMC Music. Unfortunately, they only carry a handful of the AAA cases since they take up a lot of room in their warehouse and don't sell very fast. I usually buy them from online stores in Germany or the UK because they are cheaper and all sizes are available to order.

    I actually use both AAA Rigid and standard Protection Racket cases for all my drums. For example, I keep my 10x8 tom in a standard soft Protection Racket RIMS case inside of a 12x10 AAA Rigid case. The 2" differences fit perfectly for all the different sizes and enables me to store the drums securely at home in the AAA cases and then just take out the soft cases when I go to a gig.
