NAMM 2015 - Phoenix Drums | Soultone Cymbals With Chason Westmoreland Of Hate Eternal
Thursday, 29 January 2015 21:01

 

This video features Chason Westmoreland of Hate Eternal (ex Burning The Masses, Oceano) playing Phoenix Drums and Soultone Cymbals. Chason recently finished recording the next Hate Eternal release with Erik Rutan at Mana Studios, and we are told it's some of (if not the best) best drumming ever to be tracked for the band. When we asked Erik Rutan about the sessions, he simply said... "Wow." We will be releasing some in-studio footage from that session as soon as permitted, and if nothing else, will be premiering one of the new tracks when available.

The Phoenix Drum Company introduced several new products this year, and from what we have heard, had a great NAMM show this year. To learn more about their American Made drums and other products, please visit their website here: http://www.phoenixdrumco.com/. Soultone Cymbals, now celebrating their 10th Year, always has great sounding gear on display. For more information on Soultone Cymbals, and video demonstrations of all their cymbals please visit their website here: http://www.soultonecymbals.com/. We especially enjoyed the Extreme Series.

As another successful NAMM Show comes to a close, buyers and exhibitors from around the world leave Anaheim armed with inspiration, fortified relationships, and new strategies to help them resonate with their customers in the coming year. Winter NAMM 2015 took place in Anaheim, California, January 22nd - 25th and again, was one of the best shows we have experienced in recent years.


 
NAMM 2015 - Sabian Hand-Hammering Demonstration With Master Craftsman Charlie Brown
Thursday, 29 January 2015 20:22

 

Here is an up-close and personal demonstration of the hand-hammering process, demonstrated by Sabian Master Craftsman, Charlie Brown. You can now see why every cymbal is totally unique, and the amount of time, energy, and love that goes into making each and every one of these cymbals.

Sabian unveiled the Big and Ugly Ride cymbals at Winter NAMM 2015. These powerful cymbals produce a big, dark, dry, organic and almost imperfect sound, as each one is totally unique due to the "one at a time" manufacturing process. The Big & Ugly collection includes the following cymbal models: the King Ride, Nova Ride, Pandora Ride, Phoenix Ride, Apollo Ride, and Monarch Ride cymbals. These new releases from Sabian will surely add a new "dark side" to any drum kit.

We will be posting a video demo of all the new cymbals in the coming days, so please do check back. You can also learn more here: www.sabian.com/bigugly

The background music in this video is Tony Levin (King Crimson), and his Brother Pete Levin, from a performance we captured the same day the video was recorded. For more information on the Levin Brothers, please visit their website here: http://lazybones.com/bands/levin-brothers

NAMM 2015 -Thomas Pridgen | John Popper | Ben Weinman | Pete Griffin | Alexander D Potts - GoPro Booth
Wednesday, 28 January 2015 18:45

 

Once in a while we are lucky enough to be at the right place, at the right time. This was a shining example of that fortune. This was not planned in advance, and these guys (as far as we know) have never played together before, it just happened this way. This video features Thomas Pridgen (Mars Volta, The Memorials, Suicidal Tendencies) on drums, who may very well be the most insane drummer we've ever witnessed. Thomas won a Guitar Center Drum Off at age 9, and was the recipient of a 4 year scholarship to Berklee College of Music in 1999 at the age of 15 - the youngest musician to ever receive this scholarship.

John Popper is the frontman and harmonica monster of the New Jersey band Blues Traveler. Next we have Ben Weinman, best known for his work as (founding member) lead guitarist for mathcore band, The Dillinger Escape Plan - again, out of New Jersey. Pete Griffin is a Grammy Award-winning bassist best known for his time with Zappa Plays Zappa, has also shared the stage with: Dethklok, Steve Vai, Terry Bozzio, Chick Corea, Mike Portnoy, Stanley Clarke, Edgar Winter, Danny Carey (Tool), and many, many others. Alexander David Potts is a guitarist from Long Beach who plays with Thomas in the band, The Memorials, among many others.
