Electronic Drum set rig:

Roland V-Drums, VS6 model TD-6V. I sold my Tama Rockstar acoustic set, because I can play this any time, with headphones or running direct and no need to mic it. Nice and quiet, and it sounds good. Hi-hat, hi-hat pedal, bass drum/pedal, 3 cymbals (each having more than two effects based on where you hit them and how hard), snare, two tom-toms, 1 floor tom and a throne. Some Vic Firth 5B and AHEAD nylon Rock 16.25 ST sticks and it's everything you need, literally. With dual/triple or more triggers on all cymbals, drums, hi-hat, snare, etc., this actually plays and sounds like a real drum set (I was surprised). While it feels different to play, it's not awkward and reacts like a real drum set would in a lot of ways (right down to rim shots). My drummer has a nice double bass Tama set w/ Sabian and Paiste cymbals if we want to play live or record with it, so this is nice to have. I could see wanting to check out the top of the line V-tour set, which is the size and feel of a pro acoustic set (more than this setup is and allows for more drums and cymbals).

Tube amp building station:

I use Hakko 936 and American Hakko FX951-66 temperature controlled soldering stations, also various soldering other soldering stations and normal soldering irons. I use Kester solder, a Variac autotransformer, B&K audio signal generator (sin/square wave), Instek GOS-620 20 MHz Oscilloscope, Tektronix 5440 oscilloscope 4 trace 50 uV differential. 1 MHz bandwidth. Includes 5440 readout mainframe, two 5A26 dual differential vertical plug-ins and a 5B10N time base plug-in. Craftsman digital multimeter, Velleman HPS5 hand-held digital oscilloscope, solder sucker, and a home made dummy load and recently a custom built Weber Tru-Load (to engage or disenage the motor to emulate speaker load reaction or bypass for the purposes of (still safe) clean biasing). Decent light and work bench & misc. other stuff (cords, soldering tools, etc.) and about 65 electronics, tube, tube amp design theory type books (most are vintage from the 40's and 50's). That's it.
