Chris 'Woody' Wood

Woody doesn’t need any introduction. He’s instantly recognisable as the drummer, percussionist and backing vocalist for British indie sensations Bastille. He first met frontman Dan Smith, after posting a flyer for drum lessons through his door. They went on to tour together for a couple of years, picking up Will Farquarson and Kyle Simmons along the way. In 2010 they officially formed Bastille, named for Dan’s birthday which falls on Bastille Day in France. The success of ‘Pompeii’ helped them break into the charts and was quickly followed by a Brit Award for Brest Breakthrough Act.

Woody’s kit is unique and one of kind from Natal’s Custom series. The kit features 7mm,10 ply Maple shells with 45 degree hand sanded edges with an additional 1mm outer of polished aluminium. The metal outer is formed in the mould with the wood.
