Regardless of whether it's the new Hybrid kit, Classic Maple, Birch or Beech Nouveau, the Absolute Series is Russ's weapon of choice once more. He has been linked with these kits since the late 90's and has recorded and toured with these drums worldwide. Sizes used – 22" Bass Drum, Hanging Toms 8", 10", 12" and 14" & 16" Floor Toms. Snare Drum - Wood Shell 14" x 5"
Istanbul Mehmet Cymbals – another long term association and a highly innovative company. Depending on the style of music, the Radiant range is the standard choice, but Russ also uses the Sultan Series for Jazz and for some gigs the Session Series (Rides and Chinas). Favourite Sizes - 14" Hi-Hats, 20" Rides, 15", 16" & 17" Crashes, 18" China & 10" Splash.
The TD-50 is Roland's most advanced kit to date. Featuring digital snare and ride pads for enhanced dynamics and an even more realistic drum sound. Russ's TD-50 is now loaded with Drum-Tec classic custom kits. Individual outputs for all instruments giving full channel separation whilst recording.
Russ first played one of these kits for the Roland V-Drum World Championship in 2012. This experience convinced him to get one for teaching and home recording. An incredibly versatile piece of equipment. Now fully loaded with Drum-Tec custom kit samples.
