Rafał Inglot is a talented and relatively young drummer, who collaborates with Michał Szpak – the X Factor Poland star and juror on The Voice of Poland talent show. Rafał also studies at the Jazz and Entertainment Music Dept. at the University of Rzeszów, and works as a drum educator. He endorses such brands as Sakae Drums, Impression Cymbals and Wincent sticks.
On March 18, 2018, he allowed beatit.tv cameras to spy on him during his performance with Michał Szpak and band at the University of Medical Sciences Congress Center in Poznan, Poland.
“I’ve been playing with Michał Szpak for almost three years. We get on really well. I’m glad he likes my playing. Things are going in the right direction, we’re all getting along better and better, both as people and as musicians. On the road as well ’cause you have to spend almost each minute of the day together. After the departure from Pectus [a very popular pop act in Poland], I and the remaining musicians formed the Groove Section – a section of guns for hire. One day, we were contacted by Michał’s [Szpak] management telling us he was looking for a band. We were a whole team of instrumentalists, techs and a driver. That’s how it started. I hope it’s going to continue for a long time ’cause I’m really happy with the way it’s turned out. I’m constantly developing because I’m playing with musicians who are better than me, so I’m trying to get the most of the situation and learn as much as I can.”
During the performance, Rafał used the following gear:
- Drum kit: Sakae Trilogy Mint Oyster Pearl 10″x7″, 12″x9″, 14″x14″, 16″x16″, 22″x14″
- Snare drums: Mapex Black Panther 13”x6″, Amati 14″x5″
- Cymbals: 14″ Impression Dark Hats, 22″ Impression Dark Ride, 20″ Impression Dark Crash, 20″ Impression Hard Crash, 18″ Impression Rock Crash, Impression Mixed Splash 8” and 10”
- Heads: Code DNA (toms), Code Zero (snare drums), Remo Powerstroke (bass drum)
