Greetings! Attached is a photo of my kit–a mid 70’s Rogers maple, with a Dynasonic snare. As pictured, I was playing with Sabian cymbals, but I have since switched to a Zildjian A Series 20″ ride. I use Vic Firth 7A maple sticks with nylon tips.
I’ve been fiddling around with the drums since I was a child, unbeknown to everyone else in the family, as my father (also a drummer) was giving lessons to my older brother (who is an amazing drummer today). I was no Steve Gadd, but I could keep a beat and rock steady with the best of them. I never played in public or with a band until 2006, when I was asked to join a contemporary Christian rock/pop band with whom I’ve been playing and honing my skills for the last 4 years.
My band’s web site is www.reverbnation.com/stpaulcontemporarypraiseband
