"Larry’s kit is called the PHX, the Phoenix. It’s an amazing Yamaha kit which is a hybrid of different woods - maple, ash, kapur, jatoba - from different countries, and the sound is absolutely phenomenal.
"Yamaha have been very good to us. Larry doesn’t endorse anything - he uses Yamaha but he is not the sort of guy who stands in front of the drum kit and goes, ‘Hey, check this out.’ He never has been, you can check any music magazines for the last 25 years.
"I’m saying this purely because the kit is phenomenal. They designed it specially for Larry. We were looking for something extra special in a heavier wood. We wanted big, heavy shells and they came up with this hybrid."
