  • Drum Workshop Snags Big-Name Drummers

    Jay-sus, man. Lots of changing musical drum thrones lately in terms of endorsements. Sonor and Tama are the big losers here as Thomas Lang and Dave Grohl jump ship to sign on with DW. Also joining them in Drum Workshop’s ample, woody bosom are extreme metal master Derek Roddy, Creed stickman Scott Phillips, studio legend John J. R. Robinson, and Muse drummer Dominick Howard.

  • New Vater Signature Sticks

    Be still my thumping heart, some more signature sticks to try out.

    First up is the Brian Frasier-Moore model. It’s just under a 5A in the grip but with some extra length for those way-the-hell-out-of-reach crashes. The width of the new Derek Roddy model is between a 5A and 5B, and it features a quick taper to a small acorn tip. The Mike Wengren model is the biggest of the bunch. It’s between a 5B and a 2B with a quick taper to an oval nylon tip, and it comes in a sexy black satin finish. All of them will set you back $14.99 MSRP.
