Hello everyone, I'm Patentagosse from Montreal (Canada). I'm french-canadian so please forgive my poor english I swear I'll do my very best to express myself in decent words. If I'm too "rude" it may rely to where I learn english: by listening The Osbourne (jk!!!) Seriously, I'm playing drums for a while now (+20years) and in 2007, I've joined Mapex family. I owned a Pearl Export for about 18 years when I decided to upgrade my gears to "professional" level. I'm not playing in a band for now but would really like to get an opportunity to join a cover band or to found a tribute band for great Canadian artists such Kim Mitchell, Tom Cochrane, Bryan Adams... you get the picture...
I'm playing a Cinnamon Fade Orion, which in fact as been ordered before Mapex officially announce this new finish in Canada so I bet I got the very first one in Canada and probably one of the firsts kits made at the factory. I bought it in 3 up/2 down config but currently play 1 up/2 down.
I'm playing different kind of music from country to hard rock from artists around the world.
My influences are: Manu Katché, Phil Collins, Gregg Bissonette, Benny Greb, and many more...
I'm in vehicle graphics / signs for over 21 years and I do custom bassdrum heads for drumshops in MTL. If someone's interested, feel free to contact me.
