These are my Gun Metals, I played these in Tokyo and will be playing them on the KISS/Aerosmith tour this year, Always D.W. the best for me. If you haven't played them, Once you do your hooked! These were made just for this tour. They are Gun Metal Grey with the rainbow of sparkles all over. In the light they are just beautiful. Thanks to Mr. John Good V.P. of Drum (DW) Workshop. They sound like guns, No more like cannons! So lookout, I'll be beating them your way or should I say blowing them up your way.
