It is always a wonderful surprise, and a real honor, when one of the world’s greatest drumming talents selects your drum for a side project in his studio. Todd Sucherman (Styx), just recently selected his Beier 1.5 Steel–5.5 x 15 for an EDM Session he was working on for a client. J.R. Taylor was his his engineer. Todd was also using two Stanbridge Drums as well, one being the unbelievable joint effort between him & Pete Stanbridge.
He has also used Beier Drums on Styx-Regeneration I (Lorelei), Styx-Regeneration II (Coming Of Age), and on the title track from Adrian Galysch’s “Tone Poet”. J.R. Taylor had remarked to me as well that Todd’s 1.5 Steel–6.5 x 14 was one of his Top 5 snares drums. I always will remember that J.R….
UPDATE: The last link enclosed is another clip of Todd discussing his set-up for a new track from Scott Bennett, and his use of his 1.5 Steel–5.5 x 15 with brushes….
Thanks Again For Everything Todd & J.R….
