Okay, the last post first. Chad Smith is one of the best drummers on the planet. You don't have to play extremely fast death metal or display constant 4-way independence to be a good drummer. Chad is widely known as one of the funkiest, most grooving drummers out there, and we are lucky to be able to look up to him.


Original post: If you're referring to the "Off The Map" DVD from RHCP, that was released in 2001. Here's a rundown of Chad's gear. He used the same equipment from 1999 through 2005. He currently plays the new Pearl Reference series.

I was starting to believe no one else appreciated Chad Smith anymore! Its good to see people still respect some straight up style. Chad Smith is definetly a huge influence on my drumming. The entire RHCP band is a huge influence on me, and I am very happy someone still appreciates a band that just grooves.

There are grey areas regarding sponsorship
When you are at the level that Chad Smith is at, you can pretty much dictate your own terms
Equipment companies cannot be as controling as record companies in these instances

The little guy, however, usually stays true blue to their company mainly because they consider themselves to be so lucky to be sponsored in the first place

Funny how the only guys that get unlimited free grear are the guys who don't have to worry about paying for it in the first place
I highly doubt Chad Smith worries when something breaks
Sponsorship or not
