Since 2006, I have an endorsement for Mapex und Sabian. The support from the german distributor M&T is outstanding and the instruments are fantastic. I have three different drumsets, two of the saturn series and one M-birch. A saturn set with the konfiguration 20, 10, 12,14, I play in the studio. A smaller set with an 18" bassdrum, 8" and 13" tom is in my rehearsel room. The M-birch is used for touring.
I have a pool of Sabian cymbals where I can choose from. Normally, I use one ride, two crashes and a hi-hat.
