Over the past two decades, I acquired and played pretty much every pedal on the market. Unfortunately, I could never find a pedal that really worked for me. I found that compared to some legendary vintage pedals from the fifties, most contemporary pedals have plenty of speed and throw on the forward motion, but sluggish response on the beater return. Once the original vintage designs were altered to meet the demand for more striking power, the perfectly balanced action got lost and became top heavy. Like an unbalanced stick, this becomes a considerable disadvantage to execute many of my pedal techniques which allow me to generate effortless speed without sacrificing power. Many pedals try to compensate for this problem with elaborate adjustability but only with limited success. So I started my quest to put together a perfectly balanced pedal that matches the requirements of today's music. For about six years I experimented with different parts, drive systems and footboards until I had the blueprint for the pedal that you have in front of you. Other than the action, easy portability and quick set up was a main concern to me. At that point SONOR joined the project and contributed their German precision engineering and an innovative solution for the folding mechanism and self-mounti...
Sonor 5.75x14 Vintage Series Snare Drum Vintage Pearl
Celebrating the 140th anniversary of the company, Sonor brings back an iconic look and sound of the time between the 1950s and early 1970s. The Sonor team, in cooperation with artists and collectors, worked to bring the Vintage series drums as close as possible to the look, feel, and sound of its predecessor, the Teardrop drums. Like the original Teardrop drums, the Vintage series drums feature hand-selected premium German beech shells with rounded bearing edges. Sonor has recreated the look of the 1950s teardrop lug and updated it with its exclusive Tunesafe tuning system. Sonor also redesigned the Superprofil triple flanged hoops and brought back the Sonor logo and badge used between 1952 and 1961.
The sound of a natural skin head has more tone color than a plastic drumhead. However, genuine skin heads are hygroscopic - in other words, you will need to retune them when the room temperature and humidity change.

I changed the snare and tom heads for this video at the last minute, so the heads listed on my gear page are slightly different. I'll update it as soon as I figure out what I like! ;)
