NEW DRUMS AND HEADS
I have added some stunning new drums from the Pearl range to my gigging collection. The Pearl Reference series has been getting rave reviews from the top pros and the magazine reviewers as well as the all-important store owners. My kit is finished in Copperfire Sparkle and it is obvious from first glance that Pearl have made every effort to produce the most sparkling sparkles available anywhere. The sizes are 22 x 16 BD, 12 x 9, 14 x 14, 16 x 16 Toms. I will use my own Signature snare with these drums and I will fit the kit with Aquarian Modern Vintage heads. My old friends at M & T Distribution are now handling Aquarian products and it is a long-awaited step for me to endorse these great heads which come from the hands of Roy Burns. My debt to Roy is great, he helped me many years ago and I am happy and proud that our friendship has lasted well over thirty years.The kit which stands on stage for the Helge Schneider tour is in a similar Champagne Sparkle but these are much older models, although the sound of the kit is still tremendous. There are a couple of You Tube videos where you can see the old kit although the sound is very dodgy.
