Brooks Wackerman

Yamaha DTX artist since 2016, Brooks Wackerman's hard hitting and high energy style has made him one of modern rock's most influential players. A key band member with the likes of Avenged Sevenfold, Tenacious D, and Bad Religion, he is a calculated, planned, seemingly spontaneous, and musical drummer, who uses the whole instrument to create a total drum sound for the music. This new addition of electronic percussion to his current setup allows a more creative space to add sonic layers to his already innovative sound.

Brooks is now incorporating his DTXM-12 multi-pad and several XP80 pads both live and in studio. He also uses DTX backstage: the realistic rebound and feel of his KP100 kick pad is perfect for his pre-show double-kick warmup exercises.
