Nice kit For rock and metal maple or a maple hybrid, I too feel is the way to go. It would be hard to beat a 90's Ludwig Maple kit indeed. The house kit at the old brick church studio is a vintage Tama Rockstar Double Kick 92 best I can date it maybe 91, eight shells plus snare. It is hybrid maple with mahogany, and a mystery layer many say is poplar. Which I question not much poplar gets imported to Asia. I keep Evans heads on it. But there is a stash or Low Tuning friendly Aquarians on hand. I keep three Snare a Tama Rockstar 14 x 6.5, a 1964 15x 12 Maple Marching Snare, a copy of slingerland radio king. I dont keep much for cymbals, they are such a personal choice its best if a drummer brings their own. I use a custom pillow double ended "felt Platypus" for Kick dampening it allows movement off the head for full open at impact, and is very adjustable. Live it would slow down set up, and EMAD would be quicker and very similar result. What do you feel have been the far too easy to break cymbals in your career?
