Chris Paquette
Hand Percussionist


I play/perform/record in full band settings and unplugged (no drummer) settings. I can have small or large set ups depending on the gig and when appropriate, play a hybrid of hand percussion and drum set. (congas, snare, hi hat, ride cymbal...etc etc)

Im a Hand Percussionist and I get down! I got it or can get a hold of it. This IS what I do.

Generally I use at least 2 congas with bongos on a stand. cymbal(s) and chimes stand with a cowbwell/woodblock/tambourine rack and table. I own most aux percussion instruments and sounds.

I do OWN fyi--timbales, mini timbales, udu drum, djembes, djun djuns, dumbeks and a few other drums

In "unplugged situations", I sometimes use a snare drum, hi hat, cajate floor bracket, ride cymbal...etc etc

I have my own "shure" mics for my drums.
