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.
The Somatic Defilement

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.
