Re: INTRODUCTIONS: Please Use This Thread To Introduce Yourself!
I am Phil Schinbein, a drummer and drum smith (is that a real term?) from Reservoir, Victoria Australia. That's a suburb of Melbourne, Australia or "Melb'n, Straya" as it's pronounced round here. Digressions...
I grew up in Canada, studied jazz performance as a drum set major at Malaspina in Naniamo, BC though now it's called Vancouver Island University I believe.
After three years on cruiseships I moved to Oz to be with a loverly lady I met at sea.
I play my own snares, Sabian Cymbals, Mapex Saturn kits, Gibraltar hardware (except for my Jojo Mayer Pedal which is rad), Evans heads and Vater sticks.
Attached is a pic of my current touring rig with my band, The Bon Scotts. Notice the Stealth Rack. If you don't have one, get one. They are awesome.
