Only major professional drum company drums. Strongly prefer DW. Second choice Pearl, if not then Yamaha. No Sonor, Gretch or Ludwig, or old drums with old hardware. Please get the right SIZES and HEADS, these are the most important things.
(1) Bass drum, 20"
Fairly heavy duty. 3 Cymbal Stands (one boom needed), 1 hi-hat stand, 2 snare drum stands. (Important—ONE SNARE STAND MUST BE THE LOWEST POSSIBLE, a Pearl or Yamaha).
(1) High quality continuously adjustable standard ROUND and SOFT padded
seat (screw type, no back rest, no saddle seats).
Drums must be out of the cases and set up as well as possible before band arrives. For Festivals and any concerts with more than one band please provide my own separate drum set.
Please DO NOT simply give this to a drum rental shop, they will ignore the specifications and then we will have problems at the concert!
