Just watched a video of Foreigner 1978 from The Rainbow he was playing a big Double Bass Ludwig kit WMP ? Never saw him playing Camco was that earlier in his career Dennis was a solid player by the way Played some tasty fills
Currently, he uses a custom-made Tama
set, about which he says, "I like Tama
drums because they're really made well. I
like white drums, and although they didn't
make a white kit or 26" bass drums, they
said they'd make them for me. I've gone
up from 24" bass drums to 26" bass drums.
I also use a custom-made snare drum
which was made for me in Memphis. It's
14 x 8 or 9" and it's a 15-ply shell. I used
to use a metal Ludwig snare, but this one is
terrific. I also have another custom-made
drum which I used on the last tour which
has got two snare strainers. One carries gut
snares and one carries wire, so you've got
the choice of two different sounds or a
blend of both. It's a very interesting drum.
That was made for me in New York. It's
really best for a quieter band, though, or a
jazz band, and in the studio, it's excellent.
"With the double kit, I just use one tom
in-between because the bass drums are so
big and high that it puts the rack toms too
high for me. So I use the smallest one in the
middle, which is 15" which is actually quite
a big 'small' drum. And then there's a 16"
and an 18".
"All the cymbals are Paiste. The ride
cymbal is a 22" and I have two to choose
from, one of which is this new cymbal
called a Rude, which is an unfinished cymbal
which they don't put on the lathe. It
looks like it's copper and hammered, and
it's very, very loud and excellent for rock
