I signed a drums and hardware deal with DW Drums in April 2013. I had been playing DW 9000 series hardware since 2004 and therefore signing an endorsement deal with them was a very easy commitment for me to make. My favorite DW drum-set is the one I use exclusively in the studio. It is a DW Collectorís Series Maple/Mahogany Drum Set with an exotic Redwood Stump finish. I feel honored to be playing the best drums on the planet and the most durable hardware and pedals out there.
My preferred drum sizes for live and studio are: 8◊10? rack tom, 9◊12? rack tom, 14◊16? floor tom, 6◊14? snare drum, 16◊20? kick drum. I play 9000 Series tom/cymbal stands, 9000 Series double bass pedals, and 9000 series throne and snare stand.
