This is quite a different set-up to what you’ve used before with plenty of new cymbals. How conscious are you of cymbal choice?
“For this gig I’m using the Vault stuff. I touched on it a bit with Lily. I like the look of it first of all. I saw it on a Jojo Mayer video. Obviously he does a lot of electronic stuff so I thought I’d try it out and it just fitted perfectly.
“On this gig we want to bring the real drums out as much as possible, but they’ve got to fit. I have two sets of hats, some Bozzio signature ones and the other auxiliary hats on the right-hand side. The ride stays out the way. It’s very dry. It cuts through when you need it but there’s no wash. It’s the same with the O-zone crashes, very short.”
