Yamaha Sessions: Tom Hunting & Jack Gibson of EXODUS live
Drummer Tom Hunting is a founding member of legendary Thrash metal band “Exodus”.
Being influenced by bands such as Motorhead or Iron Maiden, Exodus started off playing melodic hard rock. After some trouble with record labels, which lead to several changes among the band members, Exodus changed their style to a more aggressive sound. They finally released their debut album “Bonded by Blood” in 1985, which is still considered to be among the most influential Thrash albums of all time.
After more than 30 years of creating music the pioneers of Thrash metal are still active, touring the world and recording new records.
Drummer Tom Hunting is an essential part of Exodus‘sound. His precise timing, consistent speed and enormous volume make him one of metals hottest & most respected drummers.
Tom has played a classic black Recording Custom kit for most of his career before changing to the powerful Oak Custom shells in 2009.
Live Custom series is designed with a greater focus on playing in live situations using 1.2mm oak plies that are 10% thicker than those used on our Oak Custom drums. Bass drum shells are comprised of eight-ply designs while tom, floor tom, and snare shells are constructed with six. The Live Custom delivers a sound with greater strength and depth, provides rich expressive power that exceeds your imagination, and features hardware designed with some new, innovative ideas that delivers incredible stability and reliability even in the demanding environment of the stage. Oak's sound is clear and well defined with a powerful low-end that shakes your soul. On stage, and in the studio as well, Live Custom delivers a fat, rich tone with awe-inspiring presence.Andere kleuren beschikbaar
Absolute Hybrid Maple
Drums die u het geluid geven dat u nodig hebt, wanneer u het nodig hebt. De klankvereisten variëren per drummer, verschillen afhankelijk van de dynamiek en zijn anders van band tot band, van song tot song en van moment tot moment. Met de drums van de Absolute Hybrid-serie is Yamaha erin geslaagd om dit op te lossen, met een drumstel dat een buitengewone mate van expressieve kracht bezit, waardoor drummers een expressieniveau kunnen realiseren dat ze misschien nog niet eerder hebben beleefd met hun andere drums. Deze drums bieden een breed dynamisch bereik dat ze in staat stelt om nauwkeurig te reageren op elke aanslag en veranderingen in dynamiek, nuance en aanraking te volgen, zodat u kunt spelen wat u wilt spelen.Andere kleuren beschikbaar
Other Drum Artists
Some people navigate the world quietly, treading softly wherever they go, leaving an impression that lasts nonetheless. Richard Spaven is such a person, his humble attitude and down-to-earth, warm personality actually draws people to him and when you hear what he has to say musically on the drum set, you know you should be paying close attention. In this current world of cut-throat business, hire and fire mentality and quick-fix it is refreshing to listen to a player that can deliver without adding any further brouhaha to the mix, a player that has his own unique take on how to make things swing, groove and excite, not only the artist that he is working for, but the audience too. With all these qualities, you know you are in the company of a great musician.
