Scott joined the Istanbul Mehmet revolution in April 2014 after playing a Sultan ride during a jam night and realised that was the ride sound he had been searching for.

Scott went along to Drumshop and spent a whole morning picking out cymbals for his set up.

At the time they were 15" Radiant hihats, 20" Sultan ride, 16, 17 and 18" Sultan crashes.

Since then Scott has added Traditional crashes and rides, Radiant crashes and rides and some El Negro splashes 

For The Searchers, Scott uses 14" Radiant hihats, 16, 17 and 18" Traditional crashes and 20" Traditional ride

"Some people don't realise how cymbals can effect your sound. I had been searching for a while for certain sounds I needed and the Istanbul mehmets had those sounds. I have finally found a company that is friendly and makes great sounding cymbals"

Buckets For Bongos was founded by myself to promote the fact drumming, even on a household object like a bucket, can help raise your endorphin level, therefore making you happy.

 Let's face it, lockdown was not much fun and for entertainers.... well we somehow survived.

During this period, I looked into ways to keep entertained and to keep the niggling self doubts at bay.

And it would appear drumming is good at helping you feel good, who knew?

So, a group playing together means everyone has a great time, learns a new skill and hopefully a new friend.

The group sessions so far really have taken on a whole new level, with people who have never played percussion/drums before, suddenly realising, they have got timing and they can play along to a song and everyone leaves with a smile on their fave after initially appearing sceptical about the whole thing.

As one person told me 'So to survive lockdown, all I needed was a bucket to sit in the garden with?' yep, that's it!
