EQUIPMENT

My primary acoustic kit is a Pearl Session Studio Select, which is a Birch/Mahogany Blend. The kit can be configured to suit any type of music - and can be converted to be 100% electronic as well. I also have a wide variety of snares, Zildjian cymbals, and acoustic percussion to meet the needs of any situation. I have a small custom cocktail kit – perfect for acoustic acts in small venues. In addition I have two cajons with a variety of sound options.

In addition to the acoustic equipment, I own a variety of Roland electronic drums and modules including a TD-27KVX, TD-11K, TD-15K, Octapad, SPD One, and an SPD-SX. This equipment provides the ability to create highly-customizable hybrid setups. I can produce loops and backing tracks for any style of music.

I've collected a multitude of PA equipment including QSC speakers, mixers, cables, adapters, passive Radial DIs, Shure microphones, and much more. I can produce custom drum tracks in any format for your project in my studio. Samples are available.
