About Simon Edgoose
Simon Edgoose is a drummer, programmer, gear geek and industry adviser who has been using electronic drums since he was 10.
After studying music in London, he started a busy playing, touring and recording career. Over time he realised that he was much more interested in the equipment side of the industry, rather than the performing side so Simon now finds himself advising or programming for major Worldwide artists (such as U2, Kylie Minogue, The Who, amongst many others) and advising musical instrument companies of all sizes on technology for drummers. He can generally be found playing with computers and electronic drum equipment in all sorts of situations, from sessions to gigs, to theatres and trying to tell other drummers how their lives could be improved by allowing a little technology in.
Simon is very proud of the fact that his ideas, inventions and suggestions are used by thousands of drummers every day but even though he is mainly associated with electronics, he can just as likely be found behind an acoustic drum kit.
