I love my drums. I'm putting that out there first and foremost because it’s the truth. Musically, working with Thumper has been one of the best experiences I've had. I first contacted John Jones right about the time I was graduating from high school; however, I got busy and hadn't spoken to him since that time. Right about the time Thumper Custom Drums moved to the northwest, I was getting out of the Army and had just started a new band in the Seattle area. The next thing I knew, I was shaking hands with Thumper on a deal that I would never forget and appreciate for many years to come.

Here's the set that gives me my musical voice: a 20"x22" bass (with a monster sound!), a 9"x12" rack tom, and a 16"x16" floor tom with black satin finish and black hardware--topped off with a 7"x13" Thumper snare I had bought previously. They are loud, clear, and look intimidating when compared to other kits. Working with Thumper on my first custom kit was an awesome decision and an easy and fun process. John Jones knows his craft and does it very, very well.
