    Gear you wished existed...

    I'd like to see a configured kit (not custom) with toms that go 10", 12", 15". For me, 15" is the most versatile floor tom size there is and it deserves to become standardised. And while we're at it, I'm curious to hear what a 9" tom would sound like - I've searched on YouTube and can't find any...

    Love this quote! Also thanks for posting clips of the tom tunings Gavin, much appreciated. So nice of you to take the time to share that kind of stuff with us!

    My Performance of Yes’s Ritual Drum Solo - Shared by Prog Magazine!

    Thanks Andy! That was based on the timpani roll Chris Squire would play live, like here at 4 mins.

    My Performance of Yes’s Ritual Drum Solo - Shared by Prog Magazine!

    Hi all, I’m very proud to present here my cover of the drum solo section from the Yes song ‘Ritual (Nous Sommes Du Soleil)’, originally played by Alan White. My aim for this was to capture the spirit of the live versions of the song while also adding some of my own little twists. I was also very...

    It's All in the Wrists, Bonham Fans!

    Steve Jordan would probably be my number 1 choice. He would kill it! He's someone who can groove hard, rock hard and also has the articulation of a jazz drummer. Just listen to his playing here - exquisite Bonham-esque grooves if I've heard them.

    My favorite sticks

    I use Vic Firth sticks - always 16" long and always around the 55A diameter as that's the size that fits my hands the best. The tip and taper change depending on the gig. Here are my usual choices: Jazz, function band, low volume gigs: Peter Erskine Big Band Sticks Moderate-high volume gigs...

    Hi Gavin, hope all is well! Thanks again for answering our questions, it's such a privilege to be able to ask you this stuff here. I have quite a task ahead of me in that I agreed to take part in an YouTube cover of Anesthetize - I'll be playing drums on specifically The Pills I'm Taking...

    Sonor ProLite Kit with SQ2 Floor Toms?

    Thank you! One of my life ambitions is to start the 15" floor tom revolution haha. In my opinion, it's the most versatile size and goes with 10" and 12" rack toms better than other floor tom sizes. For me, the 14" lacks low end punch and feels lacklustre when playing rock. And the 16" I often...

    Sonor ProLite Kit with SQ2 Floor Toms?

    Thanks for pointing that out, it's not something I noticed before. Definitely not a deal breaker for me though!

    Sonor ProLite Kit with SQ2 Floor Toms?

    I don't own any of the drums yet. I'll be ordering all the drums together, so this wouldn't be an option. The only way to assure the interior is consistent would probably be to order all SQ2 toms. However I can't say I'm fussed about the aesthetics of the inside of the drums. Pearl References...

    Sonor ProLite Kit with SQ2 Floor Toms?

    Interesting! I was not aware of being able to put ProLite badges on SQ2 drums. I looked on the configurator and there was no option to do that but I don't doubt that it might be possible. To be honest, the different badges wouldn't bother me much. When I talk about the toms going together, I'm...

    Sonor ProLite Kit with SQ2 Floor Toms?

    So I’m in an interesting predicament. For a while now I’ve been wanting to get a high end Sonor maple kit and after weighing up different options, I have settled on ordering a ProLite in Nussbaum finish (each drum would be costed individually). Now my ideal floor tom sizes would be 15x13” and...

    Gavin Harrison here!

    Hi Gavin, hope you are well! I was wondering what your experience is on the subject of bass drum depth. It’s a subject that’s always eluded me slightly (along with many drummers I feel). I’ve noticed that for a long time you played a 22x17” but then switched to a 22x15” with the blue kit and...

    Is this conflicting info on Moeller?

    Haha you basically nailed my long post in a short paragraph!

    Is this conflicting info on Moeller?

    I was taught the Moeller technique in the UK by a superb teacher called Andy Leask, who was taught by Jim Chapin and continued going back to him for lessons for decades. I don't claim to have perfected the technique (you could argue no one has really) but I have a reasonable amount of experience...

    Can you remember what he said about relaxing behind the kit out of interest?

    Preferred rack tom sizes

    10x8", 12x9" racks. 15x13", 18x15" floors. For me, those are the perfect tom sizes and I personally hope 15" and 18" floor toms become more standard in the future. If the acoustic drum kit is to evolve further, I think that's where it should go. 15" floor toms for me are especially brilliant and...

    Gavin Harrison here!

    Hi Gavin Here's a question on a topic that seems like it's been over-discussed, yet I don't think I've seen it appear on this thread (apologies if it has). I'm curious as to how you go about avoiding unwanted bass drum "flutter" - I'm talking about when the beater bounces off the head a little...
