DRUMS CYMBALS DRUM HEADS STICKS

What is your favourite cymbal brand? For me, since I was a kid, I always admired, and wanted to be part of the Zildjian family. That is why I feel humble and proud to be with them. I have used K Zildjian, Constantinople, Kerope and other models, but this is the configuration I use the most.

What is the drum set sound you look for? My answer is: I am looking for the best drum set sound. And when I first hit a Canopus snare drum I realised they had it. Since that day, many years ago I became part of the Canopus family. Craftsmanship and materials they use are unique. Their sound project, they are light to carry and great looking on stage!

What drum sticks should I buy? Who hasn’t asked that question? My first pair of sticks did not feel very comfortable. But soon after I started playing drums I grabbed a 5A model from Vic Firth. That changed my life! A stick is an extension of your arm. They should feel good, have a good balance, the perfect weight and they need to be durable to save money. I might have broken only three pairs of Vic Firth sticks in my life. They last long, and they feel amazing. After trying many of them these are my favourite models.

Remo heads have always been part of my life. My first cheap drum set came with Remo heads. Then I bought the Pin stripe, since that was the sound everyone wanted. And years after I started using Ambassadors. If you play fusion you have other options like Emperor Remo Heads and if you are a Jazz drummer you might want to try Vintage A heads.

The colours that I get out of my drums are only possible because of Remo drum heads.
