A 1955 WFL Ludwig (below) which I’ve now fully restored. I previously played this kit when I was in the band Therapy? However, it’s just recently that I stripped it apart and got it back to close to its original state — you can really hear the difference in the tone and the response. (And it looks slick-ass).
Among bits of vintage gear I collect, restore and play is this mid-1950s Trixon Luxus (below). Although this is a German-based company I recently found out they assembled all their drums in Shannon, Ireland.
A beautiful 1920s kit (below) which I’ve been restoring since Autumn 2013.

Below, the first drum ad I did (1993) for Pearl Drums which was printed in Modern Drummer, Rhythm Magazine and others. Can you spot me?
