Portnoy: “With Adrenaline Mob, what I take on the tour with me, we’ll have to figure that out. But I’ll probably go big with it – definitely two bass drums, that’s for sure.
“Tama also has three new Melody Master snares coming out this year. There’s the 12"x5" steel shell which I’ve always offered, but now it’s got a new emblem on it with my ambigram.
“We’re also doing a 14x51⁄2-inch steel shell which is exactly like the 12-inch but it’s just a bigger drum and then we’re also doing a 14-inch bubinga shell with a custom Mike Portnoy ambigram finish. So, those three are being introduced this year.”
