Did Dino generally use a 4 piece or a 5 piece kit when he played
with the Rascals?

Anybody who would know has probably already died from complications of old age.

Yeah, I admit the guy pissed me off, ...mainly 'cuz I've probably
been covering "Good Lovin" (vocals too I'll have you know!) since
before he was born. Hey, I'm a little sensitive in my old age ;-)

Well Dave you've cornered the market on ignorance, haven't you?
Congratulations, with one single sentence you've elected yourself asshole of
the month.

You should be proud of yourself.

I believe he usually used Ludwig 14x24BD, 9x13 rack tom (on separate snare
stand), 16x16FT and a 5œx14 Supraphonic.

Dino had Ludwig make him up a kit that had the cartoon character Yosemite
Sam painted on the drums.

Mark,
I thought 22 BD, although Gene Cornish once told me he used a 24 in
the studio. Later in the band, he apparently was playing an all white
set of Ludwigs - shells, lugs, hoops, maybe one of the first powder
coated sets. I saw him in the mid-late '80s in one of the Rascal
'reunion' gigs (sans Eddie) at which he was playing a big Pearl set.

Scroll down to picture of the cover of him from the cover of the Collection
album (my favorite) where he's on the champagne sparkle set, Jay - I think
that's a 24" (or even a 26"!).

Yes. Zowie! I yield to the gentleman from NY, who was THERE to catch
Dino in his prime! Wow, I'd easily trade all my memories of seeing
Keith Moon, Charlie Watts, & Mitch Mitchell for that one, you devil!
I feel like wearing a pair of knickers to the gig tonight. After a
quick stick twirl, I might even give one of my cymbals an uppercut!

Bob Cianci's book "Great Rock Drummers of the 60's" has a chapter on
Dino compete with an interview in which Dino provides most of the info
discussed here. If I were at home, I'd look this up. But alas, I am
not.

But I'm pretty sure Mark's correct about that 24" bass drum. IIRC,
Dino met or worked with Cozy Cole or someone like that early in his
career (pre-Rascals). Cozy may even have given him an old drum set.
But I think that's where Dino says he developed a liking for the
larger bass drum.

Thanks for the confirmation. What a monstrous sound DD got from a 4
piece kit. But that's DD for you. The man's fills were incredible.
