Sabian Cymbal Factory

sabianJust back from a quick trip to the Sabian Cymbal Factory in Meductic, New Brunswick earlier this week. I spent a few hours picking new cymbals with Robert Mason from Sabian in the cymbal vault, found a lot of great sounding new stuff. My friend Dan Loach came along for the marathon ride, we drove there and back in about 36 hours after spending the night in Woodstock, NB.

June Update

One of the tracks I recorded with Robert Farrell, “Hug Me, Squeeze Me,” is up to number 23 today (in between Linkin Park and Faith Hill) on the MP3.com top 40 chart. You can download some of Robert’s music at MP3.com or check out my MP3.com station that has downloads of artists that I have played with.

A few gigs coming up this week, Wednesday is The Long Goners, a cover band that I have been playing with for the last few weeks, I still tell them I’m filling in, but I think I’m their drummer now. The Long Goners play drinkin’ music, some rock, celtic and a few surprises that I won’t tell you about. Aaron Saloman‘s CD release party is on Thursday at Climax (the old Molly McGuire’s) with opening act Sarah Sedgman (doing an acoustic set). Friday is Robert Farrell at the Whipping Post and Saturday is THERMOclinE at the CHEO BBQ with a few other great bands. Check my gigs page for other upcoming dates.

On the gear side of things, I have started using the new Sabian HHX 14″ Power Hi-hats and the 20″ Power Ride, they sound great, I can’t say enough good things about them. See my gear page for my current cymbal set-up.
