Tom Hunting

Drummer Tom Hunting is a founding member of legendary Thrash metal band “Exodus”.

Being influenced by bands such as Motorhead or Iron Maiden, Exodus started off playing melodic hard rock. After some trouble with record labels, which lead to several changes among the band members, Exodus changed their style to a more aggressive sound. They finally released their debut album “Bonded by Blood” in 1985, which is still considered to be among the most influential Thrash albums of all time.

After more than 30 years of creating music the pioneers of Thrash metal are still active, touring the world and recording new records.

Drummer Tom Hunting is an essential part of Exodus‘sound. His precise timing, consistent speed and enormous volume make him one of metals hottest & most respected drummers.

Tom has played a classic black Recording Custom kit for most of his career before changing to the powerful Oak Custom shells in 2009.

The HS-1200T is a two-legged hi hat with a new design toggle link drive. The toggle link drive feels lighter at the top of the stroke, and gets gradually stronger as the footboard is pressed. This gives the HS-1200T a lighter, more expressive feel. The HS-1200T has adjustments for spring tension and footboard height, and the narrow footboard makes it easier to fit in multiple pedals. The new cymbal seat has a self-locking angle adjustment and reversible felt/rubber washer. The HS-1200T ships with pull rods of two different lengths so that you can set the cymbal height to fit your style. The locking clutch has also been redesigned with stronger locking rings.
