Most drummers I know have been more than happy with just taking their own snare, pedals
and cymbals, but so long as the kit that is in the studio is of good quality, well
maintained and tuned, and also appropriate to the type of music that's going down. As a
bass player I was always happy to use whatever amps were around. Until I bought an
Ashdown - nowadays I lug it to the studio every time unless my back's playing up!
