Today we went on-site to St. Hilda’s Church to do a thorough once-over for their 30-year old DW kit. This involved scrubbing up the drums, hardware, cymbals, everything.
We also changed out the heads and re-tuned the kit to best suit the kind of sound they wanted from the drums.
One of the tuning techniques I have been teaching is to choose the right heads for the sound you want. On this kit we changed the floor tom heads to 2-ply heads ON BOTH SIDES for a “thuddier”, more focused sound, fine tuned with dampening gels. Now it’s so much easier to achieve that full, modern worship sound on the kit. We are also changing the snare wires and converting a 14” rack tom to a floor tom: those pesky ball joint mounts break once too often for these big drums.
We provide best-in-industry, FREE consultation and training for institutions, schools and churches to hone their craft. We then follow up with a suite of solutions from our many partner companies.
Many times, the solutions for a better sound are minor tweaks, not major purchases of expensive equipment. Educate and empower yourselves: you are worth it.

Snare drum tuning workshop for drummers: on 6th December (Thursday), we will be conducting another snare tuning workshop for drummers and audio engineers.
Thanks to the support of Lasalle College of the Arts, it will be held at their recording studio from 7-9pm. All Lasalle students are welcome and will be given priority: It will be a great time of learning and networking. We will be going much deeper than the last one!
Please bring your own snare and drum key to get the most out of the workshop. If not, don’t worry about it: a limited number will be made available. See you ALL there!

Having a go at the Earthtone calf-skin drumheads: these should be a game-changer. To thicker tone and killer brush sounds…:) #Repost @rino_rahman

We are very happy to announce that we are now dealers for Los Cabos Drumsticks!
Los Cabos, or “The Cape” is Canada’s #1 drumstick brand. They manufacture over 20 models of drumsticks, and 17 percussion tools (mallets, brushes, etc) in THREE different woods. These are Maple, White Hickory, and RED Hickory. We took ALL of them.
Need more power? ‘Red’ Hickory is denser and heavier, giving the sticks extra heft and beefiness. That’s because it is cut from the heartwood nearer the centre of the tree.
Want the usual stick sizes in different woods, or just want something just a little different? These are world-class, top-grade drumsticks that just might be up your alley.
Come down to try them at the showroom now: you won’t be disappointed.

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.
Without trying to be funny, stay tuned.

Today in the workshop: Irwan Shah brought his pre-badge 14×6.5 satin black custom aluminium snare in for some repairs and a badge.
It had a broken lug, no badge, and had some TERRIBLE snare wires. No problem, because we fixed those and even replaced the old black tension rods to new chrome ones. Now it looks and sounds a lot more cohesive.
I love how we get the chance to right the wrongs of the past when we were more inexperienced. There are such things as second chances.
Have a snare problem? Bring then in! We await you at our Bras Basah show-workshop.

Pantheon Percussion Standard Drumsticks: Unbranded drumsticks at a great price!
Today in the workshop: packing 10 pairs of our standard 5A sticks for @drumstruck_studios in our improved packaging.
Did you know that putting a logo onto sticks actually raises their price significantly? We decided to forgo any logos on our standard sticks to increase their affordability.
We understood early on that there is a market for unbranded sticks. Music Schools and Corporates love them because these sticks are a neutral palette upon which these organisations can enhance their own branding.
Students and working musicians appreciate their low price as these super durable hickory sticks last twice as long as brand name sticks; they just aren’t as pretty. But who actually cares if they save you time and money?
Also, blind loyalty to any particular brand is just stupid, and expensive. A real value proposition is most important.
If these aren’t the right fit for you, you can always build a custom stick with us from African Bubinga, White Hickory, or North American Maple. Drop by to see what you need!
