Music Instruments & Related Equipment
I play Paiste Cymbals, and use any combination of:
- Formula 602 (Classic & Modern Essentials)
I generally play a 20" ride, 14" hi-hats, use two (sometimes three) crashes, and at least one splash cymbal. Sometimes I like to add a flat ride and/or a Chinese type too.
I am currently playing Yamaha Recording Custom drums in the Real Wood finish.
For snare drums, I play a 6 ½"
deep Yamaha Recording Custom Aluminum snare drum, or an 8" deep Yamaha
Recording Custom birch snare drum, or a 6 ½" deep Yamaha Tour Custom
maple snare drum. All hardware and pedals are by Yamaha.
I play with Vater sticks
All my drums are outfitted with Remo heads (Coated or Clear Ambassadors, Powerstroke III, or Controlled Sound).
When I handle the recording myself, I use a Roland Studio Capture with
Cakewalk and mic things with Audix microphones.
