  • Bryan Carter x SAKAE Drum Clinic Recap

    This past Sunday, we had the pleasure of having Bryan Carter conduct a drum clinic featuring our exciting new Japanese drum manufacturer Sakae Drums. Bryan has been an advocate for Sakae Drums for over two years now and what an amazing player to have in our store! 

    From bryancartermusic.com: 

    "Shortly after completing his training at The Juilliard School in New York City and still at the very outset of his career, Carter has already played and/or recorded with many notable artists including Clark Terry, McCoy Tyner, Wynton Marsalis, Branford Marsalis, Mulgrew Miller, Jon Faddis, Ted Nash, Terell Stafford, Bobby Watson, Lew Tabackin, Kenny Barron, Cyrus Chestnut, Michael Feinstein and Kurt Elling."

    Bryan showed off his impressive artillery of technique while explaining why he believes in the quality drums Sakae puts out. Bryan discussed touch and balance extensively and how dynamics can make or break the greatest of drummers.

    The crowd--young and old--seemed to get a lot out of the clinic, including prizes!  Congrats to Cristian Gallo on winning a brand new set of Sakae Flatbase Hardware and to Liam on winning the Vic Firth prize package.  Event's are happening more often then ever and we couldn't be happier about it!  Sakae drums are fully in stock so come get em' while you can!
