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.
