Hello ddrum fans in ddrum land! Here we are, post-NAMM with many things to share. But first, I wanted to include some information on one of our artists that started a big tour, pre-NAMM. The one and only Jeff Fabb, and his band In This Moment, are currently rocking out on the Music As A Weapon tour. They share the stage with such acts as Disturbed (ddrum trigger artist Mike Wengren), and Sevendust (ddrum trigger artist Morgan Rose and Dean artists John Connolly and Vinny Hornsby). Jeff will be rocking his olive sparkle Dios M kit on the tour. The kit is a very special addition to the line, as it incorporates design concepts and sizes that were inspired by the legendary Carmine Appice.
In slight deviation, from our normal production models, Jeff's kit consists of a pair of 18x22 kick drums, with a tom holder drilled into the shell. Jeff uses these to mount a pair of cymbals, which also saves a bit of floor space. The two rack toms are 8x12 and 9x13, and the floors are 16x16 and 16x18. These more traditional sized toms give him a big classic tone. The toms cut, and the floor toms rumble. I have had the pleasure of being on stage for a few of their performances, and can tell you that these drums are like thunder! Combined with the Onyx Evans tom heads, and the Eq3 system on his kicks, Jeffs drums are a force to be reckoned with!
