Founders Russ Miller & Bill Detamore are two smart cookies and groovy cats. The Gruv-X Click is the coolest thing to come along since finger snaps.
Peter Erskine Signature
Affordable without any compromise in its playability or sound, the Peter Erskine Jazz Snare by TAMA is a unique 14"x4.5" drum suitable for any music. It's great!
Vic Firth makes the best drumsticks, brushes and mallets available. There are three PE signature stick models: the original, the "Ride Stick," and the "Big Band" model.
Tama Star is a joy to play.
Star SOUND. Star SING.
Star makes drumming fun.
I feel like a kid again.
There are many cymbal brands, but Zildjian remains my one and only choice. Why?
The tradition. The sound. Their response, feel and reliability. Zildjian is my sound.
I started off playing Remo, and did some of my most important work on Remo heads including stints with Weather Report and Steps Ahead. Remo heads inspire me to play better.
Meinl is designing some of the most clever percussion devices and accessories I've ever seen, and their instruments sound fantastic. Looking forward to more new grooves ahead.
Zoom has managed to attain that place where the name becomes a verb: “Let’s zoom the rehearsal…” or, “Let’s zoom the gig.” I can’t imagine teaching without the Q2n4K.
The best drum rug. Dampens vibration on-stage, and helps to prevent unwanted resonance from a hollow stage or riser.
Durable and good-looking, too.
I still schlep my own gear to most gigs, and this is the cart I use.
