Fidock Billyboy by billyboy

OK, here’s something different…

We had an Australian dude at the studio last week… not a recording artist, but a luthier who makes awesome drum kits and snares from amazing Australian and Tasmanian woods like Fiddleback Blackwood. Name is Stephan Fidock. Totally smooth, laid-back guy… totally wicked sounding drums. We mic’d them up in one of our recording rooms and they pretty much blew us away. Severely rock & roll.

We also did a photoshoot in the studio. He wanted to do an ad that would appear in some high circulation drummer mags and didn’t like the idea of using his own picture. So I set up a shot of me holding one of his Blackwood snare drums… with shades natch, and it looks like he might actually use it. Talk about rock & roll !! I also took one of him behind his kit (see below) which I think is the one he should use… but OK, I’ll live with his decision!

Thanks for looking, and if you’re up for buying the coolest drum kit in the world, let me know and I’ll put you in touch with the man!
