Christopher Doom Schneider Biography

Here you can read what he was using before SABIAN:

TAMA Starclassic Maple

tama starclassic maple

Starclassic Maple shells are 100% Maple. Toms and Floor Toms are 6-ply, Bass Drums are 7-ply and Snare Drums are 6-ply. They feature superior response, the warmth of premium maple shells, bottom end resonance, articulated highs, and the control of die-cast hoops. Tama’s “Back To Basics” approach to the Starclassic series includes: ultra-thin rigid shells and die-cast hoops, making Starclassic Maple one of the top choices for professional drummers today. Bass drums come with matching wood hoops. Toms come with Star-Cast Mounting System. Starclassic Maple drums are not drilled for bass drum or tom mounts.
