I believe John “JR” Robinson is currently THE most recorded drummer in history, though his Drummerworld page says that he is “one of” the most recorded drummers in history. Regardless of where he officially falls on that statistic, his discography is unbelievable.
Anyway, I had the pleasure of using his Yamaha Signature snare at my rehearsals in NYC a few weeks ago. 5.5×14, maple, diecast hoops. Man, there is something about diecast hoops that really pumps me up, at least when used with a rock song. Then I noticed that JR himself signed the drum, probably when rehearsing at the same studios where I was using the drum (on 11/22/03, apparently).
Also, it’s worth mentioning that JR is another dude in the long line of amazing players that use Paiste. I’m not saying… I’m just saying…
