I like to drink a beer, listen to some music, and do some simple rudiments on my legs. Maybe pet a dog.

Setup

Sizes

It really depends on the group but I usually like a four piece kit, generally something like 8x12 tom, 16x16 floor, 5.5x14 or 6.5x14 snare, and a 14x20 kick. With Twin Forks, I use an auxiliary snare to my left tuned low and taped up, and I might use a bigger kick drum. I love my 7x14 walnut/poplar/walnut snare drum!
