Cool pic:
interesting how the set up looks just like his Gretsch kits...almost the same natural colours too? Wonder if the cymbal grabber was just a try-out -he doesnl;t normally use a splash that far over?
Must be kind of good for him..we all fancy a change once in a while...

I wonder what prompts Vinnie to go from Yamaha, to Gretsch, then to Ludwig in only a few years? Also to move from Zildjian to Paiste, after evangelising about them for so many years. Do you think it's really "the sound I have in my head?"

Vinnie was a Gretsch endorsee from about 1996. It seems to me more than "a few years" anyway. 8-) Maybe he just need to fresh things up a little bit...

Im waiting for Vinnie to get a clue about drumming and go with a Pulse/Camber endorsement. Maybe even use the guitar center sticks too. :-|

It would have been so awesome (however unrealistic it might be for a musician with his touring schedule and visibility) if he just played whatever he wanted and didn't endorse anything. Just saying. I'm sure he has great reasons that we might never know. I just think it would have been a really hip thing to do, especially in today's industry.

not to get into a pissing match but over the past few years I've heard numerous Ludwig kits in a concert setting that blew away Yamaha & DW sets that were used by other acts on the same concert bill.
I didn't expect to hear how great the Ludwig kits sounded. More than anything I really didn't expect to hear how unimpressive the brands mentioned above were .

I've been very impressed by Ludwig drums and how they sound in context. I like Gretsch just because they have a certain character that I just respond to. I've heard Yamahha sound both good and bad. DWs, mostly bad, except Riley and Erskine.

I would like to see the Google Analytics results for the websites of Ludwig and Paiste ...:)
