On the drums…

Cue the opening music to the 1812 overture….
Tonny Steenhagen on the drums. Cozy’s drums. He says the sticks (Cozy’s) were like broom handles.

Cozy Powell drum kit Tonny Steenhagen

‘somewhere over the Rainbow… Cornwall’.

Tonny does some work for a Youth Centre in Saltash, Cornwall ( and the centre is being supported by quite a few ‘bona fide’ rock stars. The drum kit was given on a long term loan to them last year and is sometimes on display to the public on open days. Do check though as for obvious reasons it’s kept elsewhere. We think it’s one of Cozy’s custom gold and black Yamaha kits from his time with Sabbath at the end of the 1980s but drum experts are invited to put me right!

If you missed it we covered one of Cozy’ flight cases which turned up a while ago.

Ian Paice signature kit

April 12, 2012

ian paice drum head limited edition signature kitWe’ve had signature guitars before, but in what seems to be a first Ian Paice has authorised a full signature drum kit. But hurry, there are only twelve available! The kit comes with a signed drum head designed to mark the anniversary of Machine Head. IP has also authorised a range of accessories, including signed cymbals, flight cases, etc. Be prepared to part with around £5K for the basic kit, to just over £8K for the full monty. It’s actually not a bad price compared to a standard kit.
Anyhow, you can check the full press release link at the bottom of this page as a PDF file. This also includes ordering details as well as news of a launch event which takes place at the DrumWright premises on Monday April 23. when he will be demonstrating the potential of the kit. Admission is free but you need to apply by email as places are limited.
Thanks to DrumWright for the details.
