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.
I play Sonor drums but don’t really have any loyalty to the company as it stands today and what drums a fella plays is somewhat irrelevant to me.Smith is one of the only Sonor artists who is "well" taken care of....

Perhaps McBrain answered the call of Nationalist pride and decided to throw his considerable influence behind the home team.
What kind of support do top artists expect from Sonor, is it a spec-ed kit wherever they show to play?
I couldn’t imagine providing McBrain a spec-ed kit. His kit is insane.
In most other circumstances I think it is probably McBrain’s techs responsibility to provide him his support, set up, maintenance, repair, replacement, bag of both spare parts and tricks and such.
