Mike Mangini became an official member of Dream Theater in 2010, and of course, he had to extend his drum kit. In this post we’ll look at his drum set he uses with Dream Theater.

Mike currently endorses Pearl drums, Zildjian cymbals, Remo drum heads, Shure mics and Vater Slicknuts. His current touring kit is a Pearl Reference Pure (Custom Laquer). Here is a couple of pictures about his kit:
