EP 230 - Designing a Mega Drum Set with Mike Mangini






Mike Mangini is famous for being an incredibly talented drummer and teacher, but also for creating some of the most elaborate and breathtaking drum sets of all time. He breaks down his first kit, which he used with Extreme, consisting of RotoToms in an 'Apex Shape.' Then, we jump to his 2010s Dream Theater kit, which was a modern marvel of drum set engineering. After that, we discuss his current kit, used for his great new album, 'Invisible Signals,' and learn about the WHY and HOW he creates the design and shape of these kits.


Mike also shares how his passion for science, math and the human brain influences his choices when it comes to building his kits and performing.

Mike will be doing a Masterclass tour across the USA in February and March 2022 - check out his site to learn more about that and all things Mangini!



Also, check out Mike's album 'Invisible Signs' on all streaming platforms.

I hope you enjoy this episode!
