Seether’s John Humphrey - Modern Drummer Magazine

Seether’s John Humphrey

To translate the heavy, hard-hitting drum sounds on modern-rock band Seether’s seventh studio album, Poison the Parish, to the stage, longtime drummer John Humphrey has returned to the brand that he started with as a child. “My first drumset was a 1966 silver sparkle Ludwig kit with mahogany shells,” he says. “I loved that kit, and I wish I still had it. My new kit is the Keystone X series. The shells are composed of maple and American red oak. That combination produces a wonderful mix of warmth without sacrificing attack. Our engineer is blown away with the kit. It mikes up easily and sounds great coming through the PA.”
