simple word that describes this set of drums -- not
only in look but also in sound.I met John after he
refinished and re-did the bearing edges of a set of
Blue Marin Pearl Ludwigs. After I played them, I realized
I needed to get some drums made by him.I was looking
for something warm, but with projection. After several
conversations with John I decided to go with the 8-ply
all maple with wood hoops (20"x20" kick,
6.5"x10" 7.5"x12" 13x14"
15"x16" toms) and on the snare we went for
the 20-ply (6"x14").After a couple of months
I added a 14"x28" kick!!These drums are
the best I have ever played. They are the best I have
recorded, and they were designed to my specs and ideas..
and John, guarantees them for LIFE!! What else would
drums are the best I have ever played." -Felipe
