"I think I fell into Tama really without thinking about it much in about 1980 when my drum-tech Graham Davies produced some gear at the beginning of the K.C. rehearsals for Discipline. The catalogue was full of unlikely things - boobams (octobans) , Gong toms, brass snare drums, the new boom cymbal stands - all great stuff for King Crimson. Tama has been really great to me, and I've probably helped to sell a reasonable amount of gear for them. They make great drums, but they also are able to produce a kit to my spec in most cities round the world, saving a bundle on shipping costs. As a company they produce consistently high standard products, are loyal to their artists and pick up the phone quickly. What more could you want?

What kind of sticks do you use?
"Ah, every drummers favourite question, this. Usually because it can be answered in words of one syllable which aren’t exactly going to encourage response. The answer is Pro-Mark SD4 Bill Bruford model. Please visit the several manufacturer’s websites on the links page if you are equipment minded."
