Just joined and though I'd introduce myself.
My name is Paul (most call me Connor). I'm 27 and live in North-West England with my girlfriend and our 2 dogs.
I've been drumming since I was 15 and have played in all kinds of bands from Jazz to Prog Metal.
I work full-time in digital media and I'm currently playing mainly at weekends in a covers band doing mainly rock/indie songs at pubs, clubs, weddings etc.
Kit-wise I'm currently gigging a Tama Starclassic Birch Bubinga in a nice Lava Glass Glitter finish. Sizes are:
My snare is a 14x5 Ludwig Black Beauty brass-on-brass Millenium edition which is just about the best snare I've ever heard for my tastes.
Cymbals are all Paiste 2002 and are:
15" Heavy Hi-Hat
20" Novo China
22" "standard" China w/ factory fitted rivets
This is all mounted on a Gibraltar curved rack and is finished off with an IC Power Glide double pedal.
My new set of mics should be delivered this week which will be from Audix and will consist of 3x D2s for rack toms, a D4 for the floor tom, D6 for the bass drum, i5 for snare and a couple of ADX51 overheads.
Last night I started building an internal mount for my kick drum mic which will be of a similar concept to the Kelly SHU only at a fifth of the price. I'll post a thread on that as a guide if anybody is interested?
Finally - a couple of pics. This is me and my girlfriend!
And this is the only pic I have of my full kit!
Thanks and looking forward to getting to know you all.
