Colin is a collector of primarily vintage drums (1960’s and earlier). At his disposal is a collection of instruments dating from 1871 to present-day. Many of Colin’s favorite records are from the 1960’s and 70’s, so when he performs and records he typically likes to use the tools that reflect those same sounds and qualities. Colin also obsessively collects other percussion instruments both traditional and non-traditional, from old bells, singing bowls and gongs, to shakers, rattles, and chimes.
