SabianI am a proud endorser of Sabian cymbals since 2008.

These cymbals provide the sound that I think a cymbal should have. They are warm, with a lot of character, very versatile, and they always blend perfectly in the music.

I’ll create some details of my set-ups for the real drum geeks here!

Thanks Stef @ Algam Benelux for helping me out!

 These are simply amazing ! As a drummer it is a lifetime search, to find real good snares to your taste. I do own a Ludwig LM400 from 1963… But this one is slightly better. www.exclusivedrums.be

Why Schlagwerk?

Inventive and creative way of developing instruments that fit in different situations like the Yambú, the Cajinto, etc. The integration of shakers and tambourines. Schlagwerk helps the musician think outside the box, and that is exactly what I need to be able to serve the artists I work for…

remoMy general rule :

Remo Ambassador coated for all my snare drums.

Remo Emperor coated for toms.

 

Tips for a well balanced sounding drumkit:

“The smaller the shell, the thinner the skin (and vice versa)” is a technique I often apply as well. A small shell simply has less resonance, so if you use a thick skin, you’re not gonna get any sustain. As for a 16″ floortom for example, you don’t want it to ring too long, so it’s good to go for a thicker skin. Or even a dampened version like Powerstroke 4 for example.
