Snare Drum : 1ply Elm
The first time I played this drum I immediately fell in love and knew I had to have it. The articulation is so clear no matter your tuning preferences while also giving a wide dynamic range to fully express yourself on the drum.
Drum Kit : NV60-M1
The Neo Vintage 1 series are the best sounding drums I've ever played. From the first strike of the drum you can tell that the drums are manufactured with great love, precision, and care. Playing these drums I am able to translate the ideas in my head strait to my instrument with the greatest ease. The drums produce a beautiful tone allowing for any drummers musicality to be enhanced.
