Default Let me introduce myself

Well lads,

Figured I'd introduce myself on the forum officially.

My name is Mark Duffy, I'm 28 and from Ireland. Playing drums since I was 14 and received my Grade 8 in drums when I was 17. I also studied music in college for 4 years.

Current Gear I'm using:

Pearl Reference Ivory Pearl with Gold Hardware
10x8 Tom
12x9 Tom
14x11 Floor Tom
14x6.5 20ply Snare

10x6.5 Pearl Firecracker Snare

13" Zildjian A Custom Hi Hats
22" Sabian Omni Ride
8" Paiste Alpha Splash
8" Zildjian A Custom Splash
17" Zildjian K Custom Dark Crash
18" Sabian AA Crash/Ride
19" Sabian Aero Crash (on occassion)
19" Sabian Paragon China
12"/14" Meinl Xtreme Stack
10"/10" Sabian Signature Max Stax (on occassion)

Mostly Pearl hardware and one or two DW stands.
Pearl Eliminator Double Pedal

Promark 5AN Drumsticks

All Audix mics, Shure SE102 In Ear monitors

Drumming Influences:
Buddy Rich, Mike Portnoy, Stewart Copeland, Roger Taylor, Steve Smith, Todd Sucherman, David Garibaldi, Tony Royster Jr, Tomas Haake, Chris Adler, Larnell Lewis

I have good few more influences, but they are the drummers I would listen to the most. I'm hugely influenced by traditonal grip players as my main grip is traditional grip. I've only started to learn how to play matched grip as of recently. I also injured my hand through bad technique a number of years ago, so I am always watching closely to how drummers use their grip and also the relationship drummers have between their stick and drum.

You can also find me on the following:


I'd love to hear back from yas, follow me, catch me hear.
