Mike Fornier Drum Set

Band:Dead Trend

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:

Pearl Export Chrome kit: 2x rack tom, floor tom, snare, kick
Remo Weatherstripe Pinstripe King heads on toms
Remo Powerstroke kickdrum head
Evans Power Center Reverse snare head
Sabian AAX 20" Stage Ride
Zildjian A Custom 18" crash
Paiste 2000 Sound Reflection 17" thin crash

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.

Upcoming dates:

5/2. New York City. Le Poissin Rouge. With Mike Watt/J. Mascis/Murph and Appomattox.


Hannaford 26 ounce coffee can
Promark DC 10 sticks
