Drum gear

I’m extremely fortunate to have endorsements for every part of my set up with companies that I believe make some of the best gear available. It’s taken years to get to this point, but it really makes a massive difference when the people that you get to deal with are all so cool.

My current main setup is back to double bass (the way nature intended it!)

Everybody has their ultimate set up and this one is mine. I also have a second kit that I use for playing covers locally in Black Iron Priest (no prizes for guessing the three bands whose tracks we play) and this one is a single bass white Mapex kit with the same cymbal and skins configuration. It’s also what I used for recording The Blacklist because the double bass was under construction then.

So, I get asked for gear recommendations quite a lot and – while there are a lot of great manufacturers out there – you’ll get the same answers from me 🙂 Click on the links below for their websites…
