Instrument: Shinya likes to stick to two main brands of drums and that is Pearl and Ludwig. Pearl is one of the most popular brands in the US and in Japan. For the past couple of years he has stuck to Pearl. The picture above is a detailed map of Shinya's newest drumset, I will use this as a reference tool for when I do the specs. At the bottom of the page I will have an actual picture of his drumset. Below is what Shinya's set consists of.

Who is Shinya Terachi? He is timid. He is quiet. He is the baby. He is the drummer. He is the target of the other bandmates' teasings. Who did he used to play for? He used to play for Jinkou Tenshi, Siva, Ruby, Haijin Kurobarazoku and La:Sadie's.
He sees himself as a cool person ( and then he will touch his hair ). But really, Shinya is the most quiet of the group, not really liking to talk much unless he really has to. Like Toshiya and the others, he has composed the music for a few of Dir en grey's songs. This can be heard in the likes of; Yurameki, raison d'etre ( with Toshiya ), Ugly, Hotarubi, Umbrella, Toriko and Fukai.
As the youngest of the group, Shinya also serves as the target for the pranks and teasing of the two eldest members, Die and Kaoru. It could be due to his very fragile appearance or the obvious fact- as stated before -that he is the "baby" of Dir en grey. But don't let his apperance fool you. This slender drummer has quite a lot of stamina. The band members even said out of all of them he would be the one most likely to survive alone on a snowy mountaintop. He is an avid animal lover, but favors his little Chihuahua called Miyu and a little Papillon that lives with his parents in Osaka called Puppy.
Shinya wasn't always so quite and withdrawn, though, surprisingly. He was a very open and talkative, but during his years in Middle School he just suddenly became distant and closed off to others- only he knows why.
During Dir en grey's Visual Kei days, he could be known as the clich "crossdresser" ( got to love that a great deal of people use this term when talking about JRockers ), constantly wearing dresses or skirts and a light dusting of make-up that accentuated ( yes, I know..ALL of them did this, it seems ) his eyes and lips. His hair style always varied, as he is constantly trying out new ways to wear his hair, going from long to short. These days he tends to wear more boyish clothes and his hair is shoulder-length, but still has this almost feminine air about him.
