Gretsch (Round Badge, Stop Sign, and early 80s vintage sets).

Sonor Sonor-Phonic series in rosewood finish.

Ludwig Jazzette with 12 x 18 inch bass drum as used by the great Roy Haynes in the 1960s

Slingerland Artist Series. I was an endorser in the early 90s along with Lewis Nash, Kenny Washington, Jimmy Cobb and Louis Hayes. They are great drums but unfortunately the company went out of business. I still have a beautiful set.

I also own a rare Hollywood pedal floor tom as used by Max Roach, Ed Blackwell, Jack DeJohnette, Roy Brooks and others.
