Man is Anton solid as a rock! Just plays everything right and those
Zildjian K's sound amazing! Have come to really appreciate this
consummate professional.

What ride cymbal?
Anton has used a 22" Zildjian K Custom ride since they came out. The brilliant finish unlathed original model.
He is using a Yamaha PHX series kit and his signature snare drum on tour as well.

Truly one of my favorites, got to meet him at a drum clinic, he was nice and took a lot of questions, have his video .
He truly can go from light jazz to bone crushing rock.

I think he uses the 20 version of the ride. Maybe he uses both sizes though..

I really dislike Bonamassa's wanking. Anton is a master though and always has great sounding gear..

I wasn't sure whether to say anything, but yeah. I don't get it.

Anton Fig's hat seem especially unsuited to the occasion. Is it wool? A beret? Why put that sweat lid on your head?

His earlier stuff was killer. Different players made the difference.

Big fan of all his work. Got his signature snare back when it when it came out and it sounds great with everything!
