Here’s Larry Mullen Jnr clattering his Yamaha Beech Custom Absolute kit at Twickenham stadium in 2005.
Mullen always plays Yamaha kits, Paiste cymbals and uses Pro-Mark PW5AW sticks made of Japanese oak – they are heavier than their hickory counterparts.
Mullen is U2’s real enigma. He notes: “People say, ‘Why don't you do interviews? What do you think about this? What do you think about that?’
“My job in the band is to play drums, to get up on stage and hold the band together. That's what I do.”
