    Is it a Sonor SQ2 demo, or an Alice In Chains cover?

    My good friend Mike Gallus of Mike’s Drum Shop in Villa Park, IL lent me his brand new medium beech SQ2 kit to play around with in my studio.

    Brad Paisley "Mud On The Tires" in my new studio space

    I finished out part of my basement as a practice/recording space. With gigs at a minimum I've recently found some of the drumless tracks that are on Youtube to be a way to woodshed and work on my engineering and mixing abilities. Here's "Mud On The Tires" by Brad Paisley. No editing, no sound...

    I posted my recording performance video for this tune in the video section awhile back, but I thought the final full production video might be appreciated enough here. We’ve got a pretty impressive community of musicians in the suburbs of Chicago, many of whom I’ve gotten to be friends with...

    Helloween "I Want Out" online collaboration cover

    With everything being shut down I've been rediscovering my interest in home recording. This is a cover that a bunch of local musician friends & I put together by sending tracks back & forth to each other and I ended up mixing the final version of the tune. The drum sound is the actual drums...

    Nicko leaves Sonor for British Drum Co

    BDC posted a teaser video announcing Nicko is now a BDC artist. Didn’t see that coming! I thought he was happy as could be to be back with Sonor from everything I’d seen & heard from him in videos relating to his gear.

    At my wit's end with Guitar Center

    Full disclosure: I used to work for GC in 98/99. Besides the not true pay it wasn't a bad job, and we used to get in all kinds of cool stuff at the time that I was with the company. Being a 90's Premier nut & discontinued Paiste fanatic I'm always scouring their used listings for stuff I want/need...
