Drums:
--Gretsch Catalina Club Jazz in Copper Sparkle wrap. (18"x14", 12"x8", 14"x14", with a 14"x5" snare that I keep as a backup.)
--Ludwig Acrolite snare drum with P-86 throwoff. (14"x5")

Heads (all Remo except for stock Evans/Gretsch bass reso):
--Bass drum: Clear Pinstripe batter.
--Snare: Coated Ambassador over Hazy Ambassador (with Puresound Custom snares.)
--Toms: Vintage A over Coated Ambassador.

Sticks:
--More recently, Vater Manhattan 7A, wood tip.
--Also Pro-Mark Hot Rods, Regal Tip wood-handled wire brushes, sometimes Vic Firth Steve Gadd wire brushes, and Zildjian Dennis Chambers for the mallet end.

Cymbals:
--14" Zildjian K hi-hats (recently acquired.)
--16" Zildjian K Custom Medium-Thin Dark crash (acquired early summer.)
--18" Dream Vintage Bliss crash/ride.
--20" K Custom Dry Ride
--Occasionally I used an old 18" Zildjian as a brighter crash/ride, often with a chain for sizzle.
--8" and 10" Wuhan splashes.
--I also have an old pair of 14" Zildjian ZBT hi-hats. Before I got my K hi-hats, I used one of the ZBTs as a bottom under a friend's old Paiste Ludwig Standard hi-hat bottom. That combo had a nice quiet foot chick.

Hardware:
--Tama straight stand.
--Pulse boom stand with a Tama boom arm for ride (a Tama clamp flies the Pulse boom arm off the ride stand to hold my crash/ride.)
--PDP hi-hat stand (that I got for $5.)
--Dixon throne.
--Pearl 900 snare stand.
--I recently added a lightweight Yamaha straight stand for mounted tambourine.
--Pearl Powershifter Eliminator pedal.

Etc.:
Depending on the gig, I also use an assortment of tambourines (purple World Percussion for bright sound, rusted Rhythm Tech DST for dry, and another wooden one), Rhythm Tech Hat Trick G2, LP Aspire Cha-Cha cowbell, LP red Jam Block, Toca egg shakers, Moon Gel, and a rolled up pillowcase between the pedal and head for bass muffling. I also have a 14" Toca djembe.

I play for a regular Friday-night worship gig at a local church, and we recently played for a youth conference in Kansas. I also have a small jazz group called 30th Street.

I've gone into far too much detail. Here's a not-so-recent photo. Note the 16" hi-hats - an old Zildjian with a sharp bell on top over a Paiste 101 brass I recently sold.
