I finally got the matching snare drum for my oil finish Canopus RFM drum kit. They call it "the maple"!! No kidding!! It's really the perfect maple snare!! Thinnest shell I've seen so far... The only regret I have is that I didn't get this drum earlier 😂😂❤️❤️. @canopusdrums @canopusdrumsjp . . . . #maple #maplesnare #themaple #snare #canopusdrums #love #peace #happiness
I went to see my drummer colleague Daisuke Kurata and his band yesterday. Haven't seen him for 8 years! Too long... Out of nowhere I met at the same concert an old friend from my time at Berklee College, vibraphonist Chie Suzuki. Haven't seen her for at least 17 years!! What a night!!!
I got one of my older ride cymbals (20" Zildjian Constantinople medium ride) relathed by japanese independent cymbal smith Manabu Yamamoto @yamamotocymbalsjapan. The weight was 2160 grams and now it's down to 1729 grams. It sounds soo beautiful and musical now! Amazing how you can change cymbals that way. I didn't use that cymbal for a long time because I didn't like the sound and feel to it but now it's like a different instrument. Feel is just amazing. Thank you Yamamoto-san! . . . #yamamotocymbal #zildjian #relathed #amazing
