EricSinger.de: Tell us a litte bit about your new Signature snare ... you told me you got the prototype in October 2001....what do you think about the snare ??
Eric: I really like it ! It has alot of great features AND it is really loud !!! Which is something I really like & appreciate in a live setting . I used it on the Ramones tribute I recently did with KISS (I think it comes out in the fall maybe october or november) . I always bring at least 2 or 3 snares into the studio. I tried mine & a Ludwig black beauty and my signature snare worked better for the track! It really is a versatile drum depending on how you tune it or what heads you use. I use "ATTACK" 2 ply med or 2 ply heavy depends on the situation. Sometimes I will use a 2 ply medium thin if I want more overtones.
EricSinger.de: Any other plans for the near future ?
Eric: I recently did some shows with Gilby Clarke & MONTROSE!
EricSinger.de: You are also attending a kiss expo this weekend?!
Eric: Yes, in Omaha Nebraska . Should be fun!! I am also doing the Chicago KISSfest in September, so it looks like I am busy the rest of the year ! Hopefully KISS will do something in the future as well!!
