BITS AND PIECES...
Drum cases are by Protection Racket, both soft cases and hard for touring, and he has enough flight cases of varying sizes to open a shop.
Microphones are courtesy of Shure.
Richie also owns a comfortable looking sparkly throne with go faster stripes (I think a turbo is in there somewhere) and he prefers a wedge monitor instead of the in-ears that the other members use.
Richie is an endorsee for both CODE drum heads and PELLWOOD sticks, both top quality professional products that Richie uses both live and in the studio.
