On this last day of 2014, we would like to welcome Alvyn Cheong to the Pantheon Percussion family!
Alvyn has been one of our strongest supporters these two years and is a regular in the local live music scene. Check out what he has to say about himself:
“I bang on the drums and scream into the microphone for “PennyLane : The Band” every Wednesday at Wala Wala Bar & Café, and I hit a wooden box really hard while screaming into the microphone every Saturday at Harry’s Bar.
I started playing drums 12 years ago because the only available arcade machine was Percussion Freaks Version 3. I was attracted to the loud sounds, flashing lights, and the fact that I only had to pay $2 each time I wanted to embarrass myself and fail songs in front of my ah beng bretheren. It’s been a long journey, and I’d like to think that I’ve come a long way since those days.
Behind the drumset, I use Pantheon Percussion 5A drumsticks as well as two Pantheon Percussion snares – a 14×6.5 Maple Solid Shell and a 12×6.5 10ply Maple snare.
When I’m not behind the drumset being a nuisance, I work my charm on my corporate clients with LinkedIn, where I work as the Team Lead for the Sales Development Team based here in Singapore. I am a LinkedIn Evangelist, and I truly believe that social media will change the world and how we approach opportunities.
My aim is to see a larger representation of musicians on LinkedIn, and to see musicians utilize LinkedIn as a tool for networking, as well as a tool for professional branding.”
You have to see what happens from 2.35…:)
So Pantheon Percussion endorser Teo Jia Rong brought this snare out to play, and it really stole the show! You know it’s a winner when other non-drummer musicians tell you it sounds awesome.
This particular snare is a 14 x 6.5 steam-bent sinker Mahogony and Birch hybrid snare wih gold and brass hardware.
The term ‘Sinker’ refers to ancient wood logs that have been submerged in freshwater for many years (sometimes more than a hundred years) and now reclaimed for use. These ancient logs have had all the sap drawn out of them by the river or lake and leave micro-pockets in the wood providing a very light and resonant wood that is perfect for snare making!
From today till the end of the year, we are offering CUSTOM Maple snares for $400.
Yes you read that right. $400.
We know you’ve been dreaming of our snares. Now you can make it happen.
These snares will feature a standard chrome hardware package, but you will get the same 10-ply maple shells as our professional lines. Choose from our sparkle and pearl wraps to get exactly the look you want. You can also choose the shell dimensions you want up to 7 inches deep.

Alas, good things do come to an end sometimes. It is with a heavy heart that we announce that Jeremy Yeo will no longer be endorsing Pantheon Percussion products because of his future plans. He has been a great help these last two years and was a pioneer in believing in our brand and our drums. Jeremy is a great friend and remains so. He will be missed…
