Three more UK drummers have signed up to endorse the drumstick brand Regal Tip.
Lee Farmery of Furyon is the first new arrival. The band has been touring heavily over the summer and was recently given a high profile slot at the High Voltage Festival in Victoria Park, London.
"I like to teach when I'm not touring, as it keeps me on top of my rudiments and chops. The Regal Tip DTHEX Death sticks combine a warm, wood tip sound, with the durability of nylon and, most importantly, take a good hammering," said Farmery.
A professional drummer and teacher from Northamptonshire, Lee Smith (pictured) has been playing drums for two decades. Since graduating from the Academy of Contemporary Music in Guildford, he has played in a variety of bands, covering styles from brass and big band to progressive rock, funk and fusion.
"With the E Series stick, Regal Tip have managed to match the tone of a wood tip to the durability of a nylon tip, which is fantastic," Smith commented.
The final newcomer is Steve Green, a versatile freelance drummer and percussionist whose diverse workload involves performing and recording in all styles and musical situations. "I consider myself lucky – I can go from laying down Hip Hop grooves to orchestral percussion via a jazz gig and West End show all in one week,” Green stated.
Regal Tip products are distributed in the UK and Ireland by John Hornby Skewes & Co.
