Hi bananers

I recently also made the trip from London to Bristol to come and see you with The Pineapple Thief and it was mind-blowing! Following this I have been steadily going through 'Rhythmic...

Hi Robert Schmidt

Hi DaEigi

So we play lots of Porcupine Tree songs in our band. And at home it would just be much better to have a drumless track. I mean they are out there, but only Sound of Muzak or Blackest...

Hi Swiss Matthias

So you actually change heads individually, instead of changing all drums at once?

Absolutely. On some tours the second floor tom never gets to the point that I feel it...

Hi Stevesmithfan

How often do you change your Snare and Tom Tom heads when touring?

it depends on the music and therefore how hard I'm hitting the heads. In King Crimson I change the snare...

If I may ask: what is your favourite PT album to listen to and your favourite for playing on?

Hi drumstu

I want a punchier sound on my 20" kick. I'm using hard felt beaters (all round) and am considering the Vater redwood beaters. Any thoughts on those vs. the plastic or rubber types?...

Hi Stevesmithfan

I think I saw a picture of your kit with 3 Floor Tom’s. What is your reason for this?

Hi T_Weaves

Is it true you use S-hoops on your toms as well as your snare? I have a sonor delite set that I'm considering switching the toms from triple flange to s-hoops. Any issues I should be...

I noticed that in the intro of the first song you turned off the snare at first and turned it on again a few moments later just before the first backbeat occures? Why did you...

Hi willregnier

I read that you like hearing your drums with reverb while recording. How do you manage to add reverb to your drums from the desk? Do you use an external reverb unit?

Hi Stevesmithfan

Have you ever considered going with double bass instead of double pedal? Is your kick straight out? Or angled to the right slightly?

What were your 3 main Zildjian crashes you used at Zildjian Day England 2015?
