  • Late 60's Yamaha C-200

    I love this kit. It's old, quirky, warm and funky. It is my main kit for the Wrong Kata Trio and my jazz gigs.
  • Yamaha Live Custom Oak

    This is my rock and roll kit. It is fat, punch, loud and resonant. Plus, it looks extra yummy with the smoked hardware and amber sunburst.
