Jeff was a session drumming master who played with the group TOTO. His early death in shocked us all and left us with his recordings from to his In , Jeff was 24 and I had three Ludwig drum sets. There were two Gretsch sets and a Camco set made for him. His "heavy metal" set was a Slingerland with the 28" bass drum, everything in chrome, 20 X 20 floor tom, and an 11 X The Ludwig was basically his all-around studio set. He got into Gretsch for live performances.
In , Porcaro said his first set was a Ludwig as influenced by Ringo. In the studio, Porcaro played a combination of three different Ludwig sets with several old Slingerland Radio King snare drums. Cymbal wise, he used the older A and K Zildjians. I always set up differently. On Toto IV, his drum sizes used to record were 10", 12", and 13" rack toms of standard depth, 16" and 18" floor toms, and a 22 X 16 bass drum. The cymbals were all Paistes, and included a 20" Formula ride, 18", 19" and 20" crashes, a 16" Formula crash, and 14" Formula hi-hats.
Basically, he used the same setup for Isolation and I also used it live. No power toms. His bass drum was oversized, about 18"x22". The choice of snare changed with the texture and style of each tune. Also, the popular Modern Drummer ad at that time was somewhat bogus. The toms seemed deep.
Pearl said that in the past couple of years, the power-tom sizes became their standard drum. His hats were a pair of Paistes and also a pair of 13" Zildjians--a Z on the bottom and a K on top. Another was a pair of an old, old, old A Zildjian 14" on top and an Italian Tosco on the bottom that has four quarter-inch holes drilled around the bell and two sets of rivets on each north, south, east, and west point on the bottom cymbal.
Some drum forum comments and an interview with Paul Jamieson. I can confirm this is accurate. He took possession of it shortly after the show in January and used it quite often in those 7 months before until his untimely passing in August. I know there was a Ray Charles session in there somewhere towards the beginning of , as he brought CB along to it. I hung with Jeff a bit for a few years prior to his unfortunate death.
Ludwig, Pearl, or Brady snares and Paiste Sig cymbals Always Remo coated Ambassadors on all the top heads and a clear Aquarian head on the kick. DW pedal, Pearl hardware and rack. Never saw him play those in public though. Although Jeff always shied away from talking about equipment in his interviews, Jamieson says he definitely had certain preferences and pet peeves. He played Gretsch drums in the studio from that minute on.
And then on our second tour to Japan he made a deal with Pearl. Along with the endorsement came our deal with the drum rack that he and I came up with. It was made of Carpathian elm, which is what they made Rolls Royce dashboards out of, with gold parts. I got Jeff a couple of Gretsch sets, and he used them until he died.
Those were his main drums, even though toward the end he ended up with twenty to thirty snare drums Black Beauties , a Brady, a Solid, and all the stuff Pearl and Yamaha had given him.
