A third snare drum has since been added just left of
the hi-hat along with Caj'on on the floor of that side.

Not to mention the obvious addition of electronics.

I wonder if the Octobans or Gong Drum will appear again sometime since Boomer is now back with Tama?

I don't know if Billy ever plans on using them again
but the one keeping both of those alive today is
Simon Phillips.

I am wondering what that 12" snare boomer is using on his right?

It is listed as a 5.5x12 Custom Steel Snare Drum, it also has die-cast rims on it.

It looks a little like the Tama Mike Portnoy 12" snare, can anybody shed some light on what is might be?

Well first off, by looking at it I can see that the description is wrong.
Compare the size to the main snare drum which is a 14" with the one
mounted to the right and you can see that the sizes are clearly the
same.

And if you look at the 12" tom (G), you can see that the snare drum
to the right is clearly larger in diameter. As to the model, I haven't
the slightest idea.

The snare drum there is no longer in the repertoire. It's dimensions were 13"x7". I now use a Bubinga 13"x7" in it's place.
I don't plan to incorporate the Gong drum or the other stuff at the moment. The Cajon is keeping me quite busy enough. I still have pedal issues that I need to solve way before I go retro and back to the future.

What kind of pedal issues, Boomer?

Pete the bass drum pedals are 'stock' cobras: They are OK for the moment. I need to find springs with more resistance.

I have a bunch here. I
usually can find what I
need at the neighborhood
hardware store.

Where are you? If you
can't find any, these Axis
springs that I have are
really fine.

Regards,

Right now, I'm in Europe but I plan to be in Indianapolis next week for PASIC. It would be good to see you if you will be there.
