Achim Faerber (Eisbrecher, Project Pitchfork, Prag, Automat) recently completed a very successful & mostly sold-out acoustic tour with Peter Heppner in Germany. It was so well received…It will be continued in September 2015. Achim told me it was a very interesting experience for him using only mallets, brushes & shakers for the entire tour. He did not use any sticks. Quite a diversion from his heavy hitting duties for Eisbrecher & Project Pitchfork. He also used the Beier 1.5 Steel–5.5 x 14 for all of the shows as he does in Project Pitchfork, Prag & Automat. Link below for an excellent clip from the tour. Regarding the photo he sent below…:

“A small shaker in the right hand, left hand just slaps the 5.5 x 14 steel snare, and the only bass you hear in the room is my 14 x 26 Broadcaster Bass Drum from 1937.  Love it…”
