A Quick Q&A with Chuck

Where are you from originally?

I’m originally from Lynbrook, New York, but I’ve been living in North Carolina for the past 20 years.

 

When did you first start playing music?

At the age of 8, I started with the trumpet. Eventually, I switched over to the drums when I was 12.

 

Bands or projects, now or in the past?

I’ve been in tons of rock and metal bands over the years, and I have performed as a session drummer on many projects.  I’ve also worked as a live-sound engineer and as a pro audio consultant for several churches and clubs.

 

What gear is in your current rig?

I have a long list of gear that I’m constantly cycling through, but my current setup consists of a Yamaha 02R96VCM digital mixer, an RME 9652 ADAT card, Genelec 8020 and 7050B monitors, an Avalon 2044 opto-compressor, an Avalon 2022 preamp.

 

What’s on your wishlist? What gear are you loving right now?

I’m a big fan of the Bricasti M7 Reverb Processor.

 

What are your hobbies outside of music?

Outside of music, I enjoy competitive gaming.

 

What’s a fun fact about you?

I enjoy skinny skiing and bullfights on acid. 🙂
