One of the very hottest new drummers on the scene, Maison Guidry has joined the Stone Custom Drum Players Club. How cool is he? Check this: http://maisonguidry.com

Maison loved the sound of our drums, but it was the fact that we could design and create the custom kit of his dreams – something that would sound different and look cool too — that really prompted his switch to Stone Custom Drum.

SCD kit for Darin Soll

A blogger in the percussion world, Darin Soll who runs Drum Nuts & Bolts, an internet blog, in Darin's words "Like it or not, all drummers play the role of "drum tech" at times. Drum Nuts (& Bolts) is a blog focused on the technical side of drumming. Topics of discussion include evaluating, selecting, and setting up gear, advice on drum kit configurations, and tips on head selection and tuning."

Darin was so taken with our drums he wrote a blog post on purchasing a kit. Stone Custom Drums on Darin Soll's Drum Nuts & Blots Blog
