The very first reveiw writted by Chris Welch the renown music journalist and author. The day the paper came out Pat had a call from Pink Floyd's manager asking if Nick Mason could try them out at Britaina Row studios, London in 1977.

From then on the calls kept coming and Staccato drums went into production!

Sounds (weekly music paper) 1977.

Reveiw by Nicko McBrain, Now a legend with Iron Maiden. Pat first saw Nicko play with the Streetwalkers in 1976 and was very inpressed with his drumming style. Nicko worked with Pat on a deal with the late Keith Moon (The Who) and also did a great deal of vaulble road testing in the studio with the band Trust who he played with before joining Maiden. He found by varying the position and the type of microphone in an area in front of the exit ports of the drum shells produced very varyable sounds, noticing the sound miked at the head (normal way standard drums are miked) was alot flater than the sound coming from the front of the drum.
