    Drum set mascot/luck charm?

    New sticks . I have three new pairs at every show. Pricey , yes. But I can’t stand the feel of old sticks on a show. Weird , I know 🤣

    pinstripe or powerstroke 3 BD head?

    So … I’m not sure by what you mean “work “. All drum heads work on drums

    Remo Pinstripe

    Yep. It’s probably the best use for pinstripe ( on a bass drum ) that I’ve found. Don’t really care for them on toms or snare.

    Ridiculous bands or events that you opened for OR opened for you

    A band I was in headlined a “corn boil “ in rural Nova Scotia a few years back. 3 day event ( we just played Saturday night for a 80 minute set ) . Believe it or not - there was about 5,000 people there.

    I always use coated ambassador- top and bottom to get that old school sound

    Soloing; are you into it?

    This is a very good take on it . I don’t solo just for the sake of soloing. It has to have some kind of musical reasoning behind it.

    You Have To Hit The Toms Hard (Enough....sometimes :) )

    You may be confusing just “hitting hard “ for “hitting consistently “ . Sometimes it’s easier to hit hard to get a good consistent recording.

    Tama SLP 6.5 x 14 Kapur Snare is ringing like Crazy!

    This could be something “mechanical “. Maybe : bent hoops , tension rod, tube lug , and maybe just improperly tuned ( there maybe a reason you can’t tune it- see all the above ).

    Tama SLP 6.5 x 14 Kapur Snare is ringing like Crazy!

    I use the Evans dry on a copper snare of mine , Mapex predator. I tune it down nice and low. Think “midnight train to Georgia “. No muffling needed.

    Any police stories?

    Not really a criminal story but here goes… Went to a gig in a small town at the fire hall when I was quite young. Got a flat tire on my way … changed it and carried on . Did the show , packed up and left. Got another flat tire on the way home… no spare because I already used it. It was snowing...
