If you are like us, you love gear. We spend days and weeks and months looking for that perfect pedal to make your guitar tone perfect coming out of your amp. We are doing a short series posting pictures of local musician's pedal boards. We hope you enjoy it! You’ll learn a little bit about what other bands use and maybe get some ideas of your own. If you are a local musician, send us your pedal board in a picture. Click here to e-mail us
Make sure to read part one!
Mike Fornier Drum Set
I started playing drums in 2008 when I moved to Maine. Everything I know about my gear is because of my buddy Damian, who bequeathed first a beater, then this kit, to me:
I bought the A Custom on eBay a few years back when I decided I wanted two crashes -- about the same time that Damian flowed a second rack tom. The coffee can is me trying to rip off Brendan Canty from Fugazi, who plays (or played? stupid hiatus) a giant nautical bell live. I play Dc 10's because they break less easily than other sticks, and because subtlety is the nemesis of art.
5/2. New York City. Le Poissin Rouge. With Mike Watt/J. Mascis/Murph and Appomattox.
