New Drums !
Well, Christmas has come early for me this year !
I drove to Regina yesterday and picked up my new set of drums which I had custom made for me by Ed Peck of Epek Percussion, based in Regina, Saskatchewan (Canada).
I've been shopping around for a new set of drums for a few years now and was pleasantly surprised and very impressed with Ed's work over the past couple years whenever I've found myself playing in Saskatchewan with a provided backline that included his drums.
As you can see below, these drums look GREAT. And, they sound just as good as they look !
I've been working with Ed for the past several months now to get every detail exactly the way I wanted. Basically, I was looking for a vintage Gretsch look and feel but with modern construction and an extra personal touch. Ed was very accommodating and his knowledge, skill, craftsmanship and attention to detail is superb.
I would highly recommend Ed's drums to anyone who is looking for that special kit.

Here's a sneak peek at my new tubs:
Now all I'm missing is a big Saskatchewan Roughriders decal on the front bass drum head.
GO RIDERS !!!
