"We have been using our newer 14 x 8 Sheoak Block snare on the U2 Vertigo World tour and we have had some great reactions from drummers and fans alike. There is such great tonality from the Sheoak but as do the Wandoo and Jarrah which we have used on previous tours and studio recordings. Larry's mainly used a 12 x 7" Sheoak Block drum live since 1989. It's only 12 inches across, but he gets a great whack out of it. They all have that defining Brady sound and all have their own qualities. Sheoak this time around again.........sounds Great"
