Band to Join.

ABOUT

Highly experienced drummer (45 yrs) relocating to the Ogden area in April. Can play practically anything although my forte is rock. Academically trained and can sight read note music and charts (am working on Nashville number system).

EQUIPMENT

My primary kit is a Blue 1980 Ludwig Vista-lite Octaplus drumset (yes, I've had it for 39 years!!) and, for versatility, a Roland TD-4 electric drumset.

The Ludwig kit is very modular and I can tailor its size to the gig at hand (from a 4-piece trap set to the entire monstrosity). The Ludwid kit can be played wide open, slightly muffled, or fully muffled and routed through my Alesis D-4 processer.
