CAMP DUTY UPDATE is nominated as BEST EDUCATIONAL PRODUCT 2019! As many of you may know, this project was a very intense one and created quite some waves in the drumming scene; I was surprised about the incredible positive feedback. From David Garibaldi to Steve Smith to John Beck and Vic Firth – drummers of all kinds of genres were raving about this release. I am super proud and excited and happy at the same time to find that is nominated for the Readers’ Poll with MODERN DRUMMER MAGAZINE, here’s the link where you can leave your vote before December 24. Such a shame that my friend Jost is again running in the same category with his release. On the other side it is really cool to see how German/European Drummers are leaving a serious mark in the drumming scene as Anika and Benny are also nominated in other categories. Anyhow, I thank you all for your support and for leaving your vote in the “right” spot 🙂
Out now: My signature stick with PROMARK! It is really exactly what I was always looking for. Extra durability through the “firegrain” process, excellent grip without feeling “sticky” through “active grip” technology. The stick is a bit longer than a “normal” 5A for more reach and power and also has an extremely long taper for excellent rebound. The tip provides brilliant cymbal sound AND the the weight tolerance between the lightest and the heaviest pair in a package is only around 10 gramms. On top of that they just look amazing … don’t you think? Available here in the shop – and who knows, maybe you still find some book or DVD as a little present for yourself? 🙂
Another exciting trip to Poland and a week of fun, education, information and networking – first time also with international students. We were also shooting educational content which is currently in the editing process – get ready for some really cool and high quality footage with www.openmindeddrumming.com There is also a pretty cool report out with Beatit.tv giving you some more idea about what was happening during that crazy week and the final concert. Thanks to Szymon Fortuna and Justyna for organizing it all so well and making this a memorable experience! For next year the crazyness continues: The global ambassador of drumming, Dom Famularo, is most likely going to join us! Get ready for another game changing week in August 2019! A big hand also to my sponsoring companies Sabian Cymbals, Mapex Drums, Promark Sticks, Evans Drumheads, and Alfred Music Publishing!
