Martyn is a professional drummer and drum tutor from Bath, UK. As well as many years experience playing with function and tribute bands, Martyn is now playing for hotly-tipped gritty rockers Carousels & Limousines who are currently fielding several offers from major record labels.

Having been course director of the RhythmFest drummer summer school for several years, he has experience working with some of the world’s top drummers. Martyn also runs his own private teaching and clinics at Bath Drum Studio, which he founded in 2003.

“I love the versatility across the Paiste range, and use the Twenty Series for New Orleans, Boogie Woogie and acoustic gigs. However, nothing beats the 2002s and Giant Beats for rock either recorded or live – they just complement huge guitar sounds perfectly!”
