My name is Dave McCabe. I've been a drummer for 20+
years starting at the ripe old age of 5. I've known
John for just a short time. However, in that time,
he has given me a wealth of information on "
The beginning and the end of the drum". This
is priceless to me- it says what kind of a guy "Mr.
John is an experienced working drummer who knows his
product inside and out. His wife Pamm is his partner
in crime. They are good people, very down to earth,
and a blast to hang out with as well!
John built me a 6.5x14 8 ply maple snare in "Bermuda
Sand" -all brass hardware, 2.3 hoops (8) brass
tube lugs and nickle throwoff. The minute I put a
stick to it during practice, my soundman asked,"
Where the hell did you get that drum? I love it-"
Turns out, most of the guys did also.
I used it at our next show and was very pleased with
the sound. By far, out of the arsenal of snare drums
I own, it's the most beautiful. It is a drum for every
occassion. The craftmanship is flawless. (I
couldn't stop looking at it!)
John and I will be designing a signature snare and
a full kit to match the "Bermuda" drum soon.
I feel that every testimony on this site is fully
believable- I've experienced it for myself. To the
drummers out there playing DW, Yamaha, Tama, etc.
be sure to fully educate yourself. You can spend 3,000-5,000
dollars on a kit- John can build to your exact specs
a custom kit for less money. The bonus is ALL DRUMS
come with a lifetime warrenty not found anywhere else
in the industry.

for upcoming shows. Chances are I'll be using it.
