Pat’s Gear

ÔÇ£Here is a picture of my entire setup for most gigs that I do.ÔÇØ

ÔÇ£My first set of ÔÇ£proÔÇØ cymbals were KÔÇÖs. IÔÇÖve been an endorser for over 20 years, and IÔÇÖm honored to be a part of the Z family. Basically, I use a wide variety of Zildjian sounds depending on the style of music I play. But, here are my choices for my setup.ÔÇØ

Rides

ÔÇ£I have been working with Zildjian cymbal smith Paul Francis on a 21ÔÇØ Prototype Ride that is really special. I use it on everything! Check out the video below to hear it!ÔÇØ

ÔÇ£I also LOVE the 21ÔÇØ Armand Ride for a more washy, open sound, for a Vintage 60ÔÇÖs Jazz or Rock vibe.ÔÇØ

High Hats

ÔÇ£I have been using 13ÔÇØ Master Sound hats in Brilliant finish since they came out. They are my ÔÇ£Go ToÔÇØ Hats. I also have a set of 14ÔÇØ Armand Hats, and working on 15ÔÇØ Prototype Hats to match my 21ÔÇØ Ride.ÔÇØ

Crashes

ÔÇ£Well, I am also working on a some crashes to go with the Ride, but in general, I have been using 18ÔÇØ K Dark Crash Ride on my left side, a 16 or 17ÔÇØ K Custom Dark Crash to the right of my Ride, a 12ÔÇØ K Splash Brilliant about the left tom, and an A Custom EFX Crash with a 10ÔÇØ Splash on top, about the right tom.ÔÇØ

ÔÇ£Like so many others, I played Ludwig drums as a kid. I have a ÔÇÖ69, Psychedelic Red 4 piece (see below). Ringo being my idol, I gravitated towards those drums, and love the fat, warm sound they produce. Today, Ludwig Drums takes me into future, with a nod to the past. Outstanding quality, and the finishes are superb. The great Ludwig Sound is what I love. I use a Classic Maple Set with a Sunset Diamond Pearl wrap. The sizes are: 18 X 20ÔÇØ Bass Drum, 9X10, 9X12 Rack toms, 14X14 Floor Tom, 16ÔÇØ Floor Tom, 5.5 X 14 Snare Drum. I also have a 100th Anniversary Superphonic Snare that I use on sessions.ÔÇØ

ÔÇ£I am excited to be playing the best sticks being made today. ProMark has revamped and retooled their entire line, and IÔÇÖm proud to endorse their sticks and brushes. The outstanding team at ProMark supports me in everyway, and I appreciate that. ItÔÇÖs a family. I currently use the 747 Model with a Nylon Tip. It feels great to me. We are also working on a prototype stick design.ÔÇØ

ÔÇ£After hearing so much about Evans drumheads from my fellow drummers, I decided to try them, and I havenÔÇÖt looked back! I love the sound of the G2 coated series on the toms, and the eMAD on the bass drum gives me the punch and low end I am looking for in my sound. On the bottom, I use Clear G1ÔÇÖs.ÔÇØ
