Cymbals

"I have been playing Sabian cymbals exclusively for the past 20+ years. Sabian cymbals always sound great in any musical setting from studio work to large venues and small clubs."

Sticks

"I love the feel and quality of Vater drumsticks. I am currently playing the Los Angeles 5A Hickory model with a nylon tips."

Electronics

"I use the Kat KT4 in my rehearsal/teaching studio. The pads feel great, the sounds are stunning, and the actuating Hi-Hat gives the player a great realistic experience."

Accessories

"As an "old school - tune by ear" guy, it took a lot to convince me to try some of the new drum tuning tools. The tuning tool that I've found to be, hands down, the most helpful and accurate is the tune-bot. It's based on pitch and not tension and can hear smaller differences in pitch than our ears can discern."
