Biography

With his deeper-than-deep grooves, blistering solos, and out-there musical creativity, Pete Ray Biggin plays with such fiery passion that he quickly earned himself a reputation as one of the UK’s hottest players. This led him to play with top artists such as Amy Winehouse, Mark Ronson, Incognito, Chaka Khan, Adele, Joss Stone, Jessie J, Robbie Williams, Whitney Houston, Lalah Hathaway, Brand New Heavies, Estelle, and Taio Cruz, and now in the seat of one of his major childhood inspirations, Level 42.

Pete is currently busy recording with and touring the world with Level 42 and remain active with his own group, the funky PBUG (PB Underground), for which Pete is the writer, producer, and musical director. He also played multiple instruments on the group’s album Stand Up According to Pete, “Groove, Funk and Soul are my main vibe, but soul, hip-hop, Latin, jazz, rock… it’s all good with me too.”

And while he describes his drumming as “groovy, musical, fiery and energetic” there is an undeniably moving power to Pete’s playing, as is evident when he sits behind the kit and just plays. This was clearly on display when Pete headlined the London Drum Show in 2015, and simply wowed the audience.

Pete says “When I play, I just want to see people moving, dancing… that’s my job, to keep good time, to keep it groovy, to listen and give 100% heart.”
In essence, that’s what Pete Ray Biggin is all about. High energy, funk, soul drumming with a great sense of musicality and a real big groove.

HAT STACK

CSH5

Description:The “Hat Stack” is the simplest and most compact cymbal stacker in TAMA history. It allows you to attach a small diameter cymbal to your hi-hat rod with just a drum key. Also, its tiny size – 25 mm (1″) diameter x 40 mm (1.5″) height – doesn’t interfere with your setup and is super easy to carry. The Hat Stack is a great new item that can expand your sound without having to purchase additional clamps.

– Easily attach a small cymbal to hi-hat rod measuring up to 7mm in diameter
– Compact size and lightweight for easy transport and storage – 25mm (1″) diameter x 40mm (1.5″) height
– Ability to adjust cymbal sustain

*Make sure to position the black plastic nut on the top. If you put it on the bottom, the cymbal could fall.

IRON COBRA REMOTE HI-HAT STAND
HH905RH

As music has progressed, drummers have often gone from being just timekeepers to contributing more broadly to musical expression. This has led drummers to explore more flexible and creative setups enabling greater artistic freedom on the drum kit. One particular limited component of the drumset has been the traditional hi-hat stand. In response, we are proud to release a new Remote Hi-Hat which eliminates the physical limitations of the standard hi-hat stand and allows for ultra-flexible hi-hat positioning, for any setup.

Our goal with this new Remote Hi-Hat was to create the smoothest action and precision possible, to go toe-to-toe with high-end traditional hi-hat stands. Accomplishing this is difficult for a number of reasons, including that for most drum setups, the cable needs to bend. After much research and development, we were able to achieve our ambitions by partnering with JAGWIRE™, a company that develops brake cables for the world’s best mountain bikes.
The new Remote Hi-Hat offers virtually unlimited setup flexibility for hi-hat positioning, with hardly any sacrifice in feel or response. We hope this freedom in positioning will allow drummers to continue exploring new sonic ground and further push the boundaries of music.
