Sticks: Pro-Mark

I've been a Pro-Mark endorser since 1996 and have played them since I can remember. My father was a stickler for quality drumsticks and it rubbed off.


I've been with Slug Percussion Products since 1995. Their Slug Beaters are the greatest, and durable too! I've had two of them now in service for years and they are still going strong.

I am currently playing Stone Custom Drum, a small custom drum company in Fort Wayne, Indiana fronted by Bernie Stone. He purchased the old Slingerland drum co. tools and presses and makes his own shells out of all kinds of hardwoods. I use Aquarian Drumheads exclusively.

My current setup consists of the following drums:


  • 16"x 20" Bass Drum
  • 7" x 10" Tom
  • 8" x 12" Tom
  • 12" x 14" Floor Tom
  • 14" x 16" Floor Tom
  • 6" x 14" Koa Snare Drum, but snares may vary

Heads: Aquarian

in 2001 I signed with Aquarian. They have helped me define my voice and have helped create a lot of great music.

  • Superkick II - Bass Drum
  • Response2 - Toms
  • Texture Coated Reverse Dot - Snare
