Hi, i'm Fil.
I'm mostly into progressive rock, folk, classic rock....and The Beatles. It was The Beatles and Ringo that inspired me to play drums and i've enjoyed performing in various rock bands for decades. On January 1, 2013 i broke my right arm and couldn't play drums for a while. So i picked up my old Guild and started learning some songs on guitar. Today i have a bunch of tunes and the broken arm doesn't seem like it was such a bad thing after all. I have a repertoire that spans from Bob Dylan to Pink Floyd. Stop by for a listen....Bring yer buds!
Ever go for a line in a song and your mind just goes blank?
Drums first and then guitar. I'm a drummer who plays some guitar.
Specifically, i have a black 5 piece Ludwig Classic Maple kit and a mix-and-match vintage Mapex Mars Pro kit (bought a piece at a time on ebay).
My guitars are a Taylor GS Mini and an old Gibson 00 that belonged to my Uncle Paul.
As with most drummers i have a collection of snare drums accumulated over the years in moments of weakness :)
1920s Leedy/Ludwig 5x14" nickel over brass
1965 Ludwig Super Classic 5.5x14"
1972 Ludwig Supraphonic 5x14"
1980s Ludwig Supraphonic 6.5x14"
2016 Pearl Session Studio Classic 5x14".
1990s Mapex Saturn Pro (tube lugs) maple/walnut 6.5x14"
I've recently added a Roland electronic kit to my batterie
The guitar typically goes through a TC Helicon Corona stereo chorus, voice through a Sennheiser e935 mic and a TC Helicon Voicetone Harmony-GXT. I'm running voice, guitar and drums through a
Behringer X1222usb. The cam is a cheap old Logitec.
