In collaboration with Audio Technica and James Lye, we conducted a drum tuning and studio recording workshop at Lasalle College of the Arts on the 24th of October.
On 7th November I will be conducting another such workshop for SMU students, this time, only drum tuning. Not long after I will be conducting a similar workshop for ITE Central students.
On the 21st of November, I am conducting a snare tuning workshop for anyone who wants to sign up. The location will depend on the number of people who sign up. It is free. Just drop me a message at 97254846 and we can talk from there.
We will have more courses in november and december, all free.
4-piece 10/12/13/20 “Urban” pancake kit in “Ocean Blue Fade” finish.
The ‘Urban’ configuration is an inexpensive, multi-function pancake drum kit with dual usable surfaces. One side is a regular drum-set skin, while the other side is a mesh head. It is dry, low-volume, and won’t wake the neighbours.
The “Ocean Blue Fade” finish is a four-part fade of white, blue, purple, and black. Some have commented that they look like water-colour paintings.
Intrigued? Keep practicing, stay safe, and #playpantheon everybody.

I was at Tonehouse Studios today to give the snares a little TLC: they had been heavily used in the last few weeks since Tonehouse opened its doors. Many a drummer has had fun on them and many a hard-hitting gig held at the venue.
I noted that the drummers tended to crank the original heads (Evans HD Dry) really tight. I think they were trying to get more attack out of the snares than the HD Dry really allowed. The HD Dry is a really thick and phat sounding head which I had put on for studio tracking purposes.
As an experiment, I went with Aquarian’s Hi Energy head on the Aluminium snare and the New Orleans Special on the Myrtle stave snare. Now the snares sound a lot more open and have much more of the attack and high frequencies audible. Those were easily tamed with a little dampening for a fatter tone when required, making this a far more versatile set up.
We listen. We do this because we want our drummers to have the best experience and the best sound possible in our little venue. We do this because we are Tonehouse Studios. Make a booking today and #playpantheon everybody!
Celebrate Singapore’s indie (short for independent) culture at the *SCAPE Music Day Out.
Indie culture has its origins as an alternative form of staying away from the mainstream. Indie music is often produced outside of commercial record labels. This may include an autonomous, do-it-yourself approach to recording and publishing. The indie ideology today inspires a new breed of home-grown creative entrepreneurs. On this day, we honour this identity.
There will be a music showcase, a conference, and various fringe activities. Enjoy music from the likes of @cadencesg, @fingerfunkparty, @pleasantrymusic and @thecolorfractal.
We set the scene, just pop by and chill.
More info at: bit.ly/scapemdo. Link is also available in our bio.
Very thankful for the apprentices, students, supporters, customers, partners, kopi kakis and musicians in the last few weeks. Pantheon is stronger than it has ever been before because of all of you. Thank you.

Custom 13×7 aluminium snare in a beautiful “Jupiter” patina finish for an international customer. The finish was done by our good friend @predator_percussion and this is one of our many international collaborations. We source the best from around the world and we share and respect each other’s work often.
To do this snare justice we put on a combination of brass and gold hardware, with a royal purple snare strap for the Canopus Vintage Dry snare wires. It’s a beautiful snare and sounds very articulate, punchy and meaty.
