Any set players here?

Stupid question (hey, I'm polish), but was looking to get a little discussion going on set playing.  That, and I could use the therapy, lol.  I'm walking out the door soon to purchase my new kit (Tama Starclassic Bubingas) and could use the support.

Influences?  Groups you play with?  Equipment?

My current setup is...
Tama Starclassic Performers in Red Sparkle Fade
8"; 10"; 12"; Mounted
14"; Floor Tom
14"; Snare
22"; Kick

13"; Zildjian K/Z Combo Hats
20"; Zildjian K Custom Dark Dry Ride
22"; Sabian Paragon Ride
17"; Zildjian K Dark Crash
17"; Zildjian A Custom Projection Crash
6"; Zildjian A Custom Splash
8"; Zildjian A Splash
10"; Sabian Paragon Splash (I think its a 10";)
12"; Sabian AAX Splash
12"; Wuhan China
10"; Wuhan China
16"; Zildjian Oriental China Trash

Also use a Roland SPD-S Sampling/Percussion Pad

What about you guys?
I play in a group called Fez Fatale on a juicy Maple Masters Custom by Pearl  - usually 5 pieces, sometimes 4. Mostly K Zildjians with an A custom here and there. We do funky stuff, loungy jazz, some country, rock...sort of all over the road, but that's one thing I love about it. I just wish I had more time to practice...

I like listening to most drummers. Some of my favorites are Billy Martin, Stanton Moore, Bill Stewart, Bernard Purdie, Steve Gadd, Peter Erskine, and Herlin Riley.

Enjoy your new kit! Drums are fun. :)
I've always drummed on a Pearl Export or similar level set because playing live changes the game.  As long as you're not duct-taping socks to the heads (and a lot of people do!) the sound booth is the big difference in drum sound. 

My insignificant micro-claim-to-fame was playing in a band called PMG that opened for terrible bands such as Bad Company and Dangerous Toys in the early 90s.  Influences: Tim ";Herb"; Alexander, and other little-known cats like Neal Peart, Stewart Copeland, and Will Calhoun. 
Now now, Bad Company is some serious classic rock.  It doesn't get any more classic.
