Rick plays Simmons drum pads and various Simmons drum machines, Shark foot pedals and Zildjian cymbals. Sav plays Hammer basses exclusively. Phil plays Jackson guitars equipped with Kahler tremolo arms exclusively. Steve will only ever play Gibson guitars. Messers Clark and Collen use Randall amplification (to get that "rad" Def Leppard guitar sound). Joe plays golf with Spalding "Executive" irons and woods, "Dunlop 65" gold balls (courtesy of Shell Garages, Ireland); and soccer with anyone who'll get out of bed.

Mastered at SNB Mastering Studios, Montreal
** The number 230 was a code, only use at SNB, for one major record company to prevent piracy. If "230" wasn't written on the lacquer along with the catalogue number the mastering would not have been done at SNB (for only that one record label)

This side - etched SNB-BK
Other Side - ethced SNB 230 EL - Mastered by Emile Lepine. As discussed in the forums.
