My main kit. Comprising 10", 12", 13", 14" and 16" toms, a 14" snare and a 22" bass drum. This allows me a variety of setups to suit the gig. With the aid of coated Remo Emperors on the toms, coated Ambassador on the snare and a clear Powerstroke 3 on the bass drum, the kit produces a warm yet powerful and punchy tone.
This is my jazz kit. Comprising 12" and 14" toms, a 14" snare and 18" bass drum. With coated Remo Ambassadors on the toms, a Fibreskyn 3 on the snare and a clear pinstripe on the bass drum, this kit is great for jazz gigs and settings which call for more of a vintage vibe.

My electric kit. Mostly used for practice thanks to its comparatively low noise! The kit comprises bass, snare, 3 toms, 2 crashes, hats and a ride.
Whilst it may not be the latest and greatest, the kit is more than capable of live performance, especially when paired with one of the many sample packages on the market. It also allows me to record midi for a flexible session take and more sounds than you can shake a drum stick at!
All my go to sticks, brushes, multi-rods and mallets are Regal Tip. I've been using them for many years, almost exclusively.
