Q: Was it odd to be the most famous drummer using Orthodox grip?
A: Oh no, Vinnie’s orthodox, there’s a few of us left! What I like is that the youngsters REVERE the orthodox grip, they’re full of reverence for it. I was taught from the age of nine, I am classically trained, in the drums at least, the harmony came a while later. All my technique is absolutely correct. And it really helps. I warm up with rudiments. I just find that I have a better show, if I warm up correctly, doing the correct rudiments, get my paradiddles just perfect. It’s like eating my greens! My technique is absolutely correct. (more…)

Q: How about a complete break down of all of your Dream Theater touring drum kits?

And also, when you have the drums tuned to a high pitch, there’s still in that sound a lot of low end. Your ear responds to the high end, but the low end is still in there, and since it still exists, through equalisation of the PA you can can roll off a lot of the high end and roll on a lot of bass, and you can get that thick boom, but still have that attack, that cut.
