Stewart Copeland


Stewart Copeland's kit for the 2007 Police World Tour, seen here before a show at the massive Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles.

Here is a front view of his kit, which is a TAMA Starclassic Maple in Police Blue Sparkle finish.

Stewart's 5"x14" Signature Snare Drum. He uses this snare drum exclusively, and has three with him on tour at all times.

His 8"x10" and 9"x13" rack toms are mounted directly above the kick drum.

Stewart uses 16"X16" and 16"x18" floor toms, as seen here.

His 18"x22" bass drum features this custom logo head.

Stewart is very well-known for his use of Octobans, which he mounts in a row over the hi-hat cymbals.

Another view of his Octobans. Here you can also see his 8"x12" tom, which is mounted to the left of his hi-hat using a combo stand.

Stewart's pedal set-up includes an Iron Cobra Lever Glide hi-hat stand (HH905) and an Iron Cobra Power Glide twin pedal (HP900PTW), a recent addition for him.

This percussion rig is set up behind his drum kit, on top of a hydraulic lift, which rises or falls depending on the song.

These 4"x8" and 4.5"x10" Tymp Toms are another part of his percussion setup.

Jeff Seitz is in charge of Stewart's elaborate setup, and has been his drum tech for almost 30 years.
