AQUARIAN DRUM HEADS I've been hitting Aquarian Skins ever since I was given a set for a clinic several years back. I thought they had a great sound and were really hard wearing and I'm very pleased to say I am now an Aquarain Artist!
Aquarian Heads complement my Guru Kit Perfectly for the ultimate in sound control and tonality!
GURU DRUMWORKS These are the best drums! Guru Drumworks make some of the most beautiful
well crafted and fantastic sounding solid wood drums you will ever play! Steam bent or stave.
"When I first saw Dean's Guru drums I thought they were the best I'd seen, he seemed to have stripped everything down to what a pure wooden drum should be but still maintained a very positive character and slight quirkiness. I tried a Zebrano kit and his custom snares and the sound was just as amazing as the construction and finish. As well as the solid wood stave drums like my Zebrano kit, the solid steam bent drums also sound fantastic. The amazing thing with Guru is that Dean keeps coming out with new designs and finishes that make you go "wow" not just when you see them but when you play them too".
My Guru set-up is a solid wood Zebrano Kit; 14" x 6" snare, 20" x 20" bass, 10" x 9", 12" x 10", 16" x 16" toms and a 12" x 8" ash and walnut chequered 2nd snare.
PROTECTION RACKET CASES I've been stuffing my drums into Pro Racket cases for as long as 'Ive had drums worth protecting and when the drums have gone, the cases have always stayed!
Great Drum Rugs too!
