The UK Drum Show are very pleased and fortunate to have two iconic drum kits appear in the Nick Hopkin Vintage and Iconic Room.
Come and see the 1960’s Ludwig drum kit that belonged to, and was used by Alan White on the Oasis Album ‘(What’s the Story) Morning Glory?’ It was Oasis’ most commercially successful album selling in excess of 20 million copies Worldwide. The kit dates to the mid 60’s in a stunning Black Diamond, configuration 22,13,16.
Also, come and see the vintage Yamaha 9000 drum kit that belongs to, and was used by Sean Moore on the first 2 Manic Street Preachers albums, ‘Generation Terrorists’ and ‘Gold Against the Soul’. This kit was used on their early tours, TV and festival appearances. It was last seen in public at London Astoria in December 1994, when they played their last ever show as a four piece.
Further iconic and vintage gear and memorabilia will be added to this room over the coming weeks, along wth guest speakers.
The Artist Concept Models are a collection of cymbal voices. They are the product of Meinl Cymbal Artists and the Meinl R&D team. The goal was to craft unique and innovative sounds that allowed the artist to explore, create and forge ahead as leaders in acoustic music and in the art of drumming.
Thomas Lang about his Super Stack:
When struck at the shoulder of the top china, my Super Stack produces an aggressive mid-range bark that projects with incredible ferocity. Its fierceness cuts through any wall of sound and allows you to slice through even the most crowded soundscape. When played softly at the edge, it produces a wide and washy sizzle, perfect for accents and punctuations at a more moderate volume. When played with the stick tip at the shoulder, its short and piercing sound is reminiscent of a trashy hihat. The Super Stack is super loud, super fast, and super short. It allows the drummer to override and supersede even the most dense frequency chaos and make a clear and consice percussive statement in every musical sitatuion. By adjusting the pressure of the wing nut, you can adjust the length of the sustain and dial up your perfect stack attack and decay. This is the most versatile stack combination you’ll find.”
The UK Drum Show is very excited to announce Simon Phillips to the show. Simon is by far one of the world’s most renowned and respected drummers, whose style not only reflects his technical gift but also his distinct musical sensibility. Whether it is Rock, Fusion, Jazz or World, Simon applies the same precision and intensity to his drumming, which is never lacking in emotion and feel.
Simon will be appearing on Sunday 24th of September – Manchester Central at 5pm. Not be missed.
