My signature model is the Hickory Power 5B Acorn. Vater is the premier drumstick company in the world. I am honored and proud to be a Vater Artist. You may catch me wearing their hoodies, hats or shirts out and about.
Porter & Davies are the company behind the BC2, BC2rm, Gigster, BC-X, TT6 Equipped Thrones and KT Platforms patented tactile monitoring systems. My BC2 provides the low end of my bass drum directly to my drum seat. No better way to feel the music on stage. I was their first product endorser in Ohio back in 2014 and never looked back.
Since 2007, these are the ONLY drumheads I use on every drum I play. One of my heroes (also from Cleveland), Eric Singer of KISS states that "Attack Drumheads have been an integral part of my sound for over 20 years. After speaking with Mark (of Cardinal Percussion) about the new product designs, concepts, and direction of the brand, I can safely say the future of this drumhead brand is on the ATTACK!"
Great sounding and durable metal is all drummers want. Soultone delivers. Their artists even get custom logo designs printed on the brass. Since 2014, I get excited to smash these at every show.
They strive to be the drum bag authority, building a comprehensive product line, offering a compelling, focused assortment of drum bags, hardware, cymbal, gong, stick, pedal, conga, djembe bags, and accessories, as well as new categories targeted to the lifestyles of drummers and percussionists worldwide. Fred puts out a great product and responds to my needs immediately. The durability and quality is second to none.
Drummers are particular with EXACT setups each time. Baskey Mat Markers are the answer. They permanently attach to your drum rug and you simply drop your stands and drum legs into these markers. Saves time and frustration.
Most tedious drum job is individually screwing wing nuts to a cymbal top until they fall off and disappear. Enough said. This eliminates that and saves time. Bill and his team welcomed me to their No Nuts family in 2023 and I see a long relationship here.
This is my go to in studio for quick tuning and dynamics. The 12-lug Superdrum produces excellent clarity at very soft through very loud playing levels. 12-lugs is what makes the Superdrum better and more versatile than drums with fewer lugs.
Anyone in Ohio and abroad knows that Dale Flanagan is the drum builder master.
