Jeff Bowders


This is Jeff's new Starclassic Performer B/B(Bubinga/Birch) kit, in custom Black Metallic finish with Black Nickel hardware.

Here is a view of his 7-piece setup from behind the throne.

Jeff's primary snare is this 6.5"x14" Brass drum.

He uses this 5.5"x10" matching Bubinga/Birch drum for an alternate snare sound.

His 8"x10" and 9"x12" rack toms, mounted off of Roadpro combination stands.

Here you see his 12"x14" and 14"x16" floor toms.

18"x22" kick drum, on which he plays some thunderous double-bass patterns.

To do so, Jeff uses an Iron Cobra Power Glide double pedal with Dual Sided bass drum beaters (DS30).
