This is the current studio/lessons drum kit that students use. I'm always tinkering and moving things around. However the basic, common and traditional five-piece drum kit is always at the center. The five-piece is the most common set up for drum kits that you will find when a studio or venue calls for a shared drum kit. The heart of this kit is a Gretsch Catalina Club five piece, with some extra drums and pieces that come and go depending on my mood or music requirements.


This is a full-size Yamaha F335 steel string acoustic guitar that you're welcome to try out and play during lessons. It is a beginner/budget model and cost about $165. But it plays well and sounds pretty good. If you try it out and find it's too big, you might be more comfortable with a 3/4 size guitar or mini guitar.
