Porter & Davies Used By Drummers With Bruce Springsteen, Greta Van Fleet, Jessie J, Hans Zimmer & More


Porter & Davies, renowned for their world class silent tactile monitoring systems, are proud to announce new drummers using their range of products. These now include:

Max Weinberg, the longtime drummer of the legendary Bruce Springsteen’s E Street band. He has been using his BC2rm since the summer and will be using it when the 2024 world tour kicks off in March. Another new family member is UB40’s iconic drummer and founder member Jimmy Brown. 2024 will see him put his new Gigster to good use as he and the band celebrate forty five years together with a tour and new album.

Internationally acclaimed drummer Adam ‘Smiley’ Wade has graced the stage with some of the industry’s most notable talents including Jessie J and Craig David. He is now using a BC2 when drumming live and in the studio. Aicha Djidjelli, drummer and percussionist with multi Oscar and Grammy Award winner, Hans Zimmer, has just purchased a BC2 to aid her with both acoustic and electronic drum playing.

The portable BC2 puts a drummer right in the heart of the kit allowing them to feel every nuance of every beat without latency. Now using the BC2 on tour are: Clemons Poindexter playing with Kahlid who supported Ed Sheeran earlier in 2023, Greta Van Fleet’s Daniel Wagner and Blas Elias with the Trans-Siberian Orchestra. Also using the BC2 are Adam Savage with While She Sleeps, Matt Yonkerwith Less Than Jake, Justin Brown with multi Grammy award winner Thundercat and Jimmi Naylor playing with indie legends The Pidgeon Detectives.

The big brother to the BC2 is the TT6 Equipped Throne which is designed to be driven by existing monitor amps. Bill Ransom the accomplished drummer with the Grammy nominated blues singer, Beth Hart, opted for this choice as he heads out on her 2024 tour.
