Favorite Drums/cymbals

Being a drummer (endorsed by Truth) I'm always around different types of drums and cymbals from a lot of different companies. I ranked my favorites by "drum company/cymbal company" in the descriptions of albums I bought recently.

Ludwig/Meinl. Ludwig makes my list for one reason and one reason alone: Black Beauty snare. As you can see in my profile picture, my latest recording set-up utilized the Black Beauty to its fullest potential and I have never achieved a snare sound so clean and powerful before. Meinl cymbals, in my opinion, suck. But, they suck less than any other cymbal company that didn't make my list. To be honest, I don't like how they sound on any record I have heard (except Ashes Of The Wake by Lamb Of God). If I had to pick a favorite from them, I would say the MB20 series would take the crown.

DW Drums/Sabian. DW sound amazing for the price. They look great, and the sounds you get from them are warm and very loud. Some great players are endorsed by DW as well. Sabian is a pretty interesting company. I have a love/hate relationship with them, as their cymbals don't last that long. My favorite series is the AAX series, as I love the 14" mini-china and the 8" brilliant splash. I have also noticed not too many of my drumming friends play them as well, is that the case for you?

Define The Great Line


Truth Custom Drums/Zildjian. Being a Truth player I have honestly never heard better sounding drums when tech'd right. I played a lot of good sets before Truth, and hands down they sound the best. Geoff, you are the man. Zildjian make my favorite cymbals because 1. They last a long time 2. The A Custom series is unbeatable in the studio 3. They look great. My favorite cymbals from them are any size A Custom crash, and the 9" Zil-Bel.
