Hey drummers I'm Allan Varnfield and I'm the Founder of Drumgrades!

First of all let's talk about the fun stuff.... DRUM KITS! WOOHOO!

My Current Drum Kit Collection:

  • 1960’s Silver Sparkle Ludwig
  • 1972 Champagne Sparkle Gretsch
  • DW '7 Piece' Collectors Series

My Favourite Sticks:

  • Vic Firth 5B Vic Grip - Can't play normal sticks anymore! Gotta have my dips.


An assortment of brands but mainly Zildjian and Istanbul. My favourite things at the moment are my 22" Zildjian Constantinople Ride and some 70's Super Zyn hats. They've got that proper Steve Gadd vibe about them. So good for recording!

What I can't live without:

  • My lovely Wife
  • All of my Family
  • and my beloved studio!

Dream Kit:

  • Reissue 'John Bonham' Ludwig Vistalite - Pretty please Santa, I've been a good boy!
