Paul Bostaph Interview - Yamaha Recording Custom Snare Drums
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Dec. 17, 2009) Yamaha is proud to announce that Paul Bostaph has joined its artist roster. Paul, a rock musician who has played drums for Forbidden, Slayer, Testament, Exodus and Systematic, plays a 9-piece Custom Oak drum kit.
"Every time I hear a Yamaha drum set I think, 'Man, those drums have great tone,' says Bostaph. "I have always wanted to connect with that Yamaha tone. Well, I've stopped wishing. I have that excitement to create again! Yamaha drums are the best. I feel like I have just accomplished a lifelong goal every time I play them."
Paul just returned from a summer tour across Europe with Testament. The band is currently working on their next studio album, expected to be released in 2010.
"We are very excited that Paul has joined the Yamaha Drums family," comments John Wittman, Manager of Artist Relations for Yamaha Corporation of America. "We know we will have a long and successful partnership with this extrememly talented, legendary metal drummer."
Paul played drums for the thrash metal band Forbidden from 1986-1991 before joining Slayer in 1992. In 2005, he joined the band Exodus and toured with them until 2007, when he left, allowing the original drummer to rejoin the band. He rejoined Testament in October of 2007, now playing alongside fellow Yamaha artist Alex Skolnick on guitar. Paul had been a brief member of Testament in 1993.
I samarbejde med den legendariske kunstner Steve Gadd har Yamaha optimeret den ikoniske Recording Custom-serie med nye designelementer, der giver en raffineret og fokuseret lyd med forbedret afrundet og dybere tone. 6-lags kedler helt i nordamerikansk birk med 30 graders bearing edges suppleres af den nydesignede Hi Tension-lug, der er vægtet for at fremhæve de lavere frekvenser. Resultatet er en tromme, der er både lettere at bruge og stemme, og som nydefinerer den klassiske signaturlyd. Velegnet til alle typer trommespil i alle situationer.Fås i andre farver
