Update from Carl
Vater Signature Stick Now Available:
Happy New Year Everyone (I’m a bit late getting to this).
I am pleased to announce that my NEW Vater signature drums is now available. Please check with your local drum shop and also at vater.com to purchase a bundle.
2018 will be an exciting year for me as I will be doing more tours with Benny Golson, Vincent Herring and The History of Jazz Tour, my group Carl Allen & The Art of Elvin, Renee Rosnes and many others. Also, be on the lookout for a number of recordings coming out this year with a number of great musicians.
On the equipment front: I have been checking out the new Zoom H1n, Tru Tuner, new mics by Earthworks, the Soundbrenner and much more.
DW Drums just made me some new drums that I can’t wait to get. I recently visited the DW facilities where I did a video for them and got to play them a bit. I can’t much about it yet but they “experimented” a bit on this set and they are just ridiculous. I will post photos once I receive them.
There will also be several clinics, masterclasses and residencies this year for which I am very excited about.
Please visit my site regularly as there will be more exciting things that I will be sharing with you all. I do hope to see you all soon.
I pray that you all will have a safe, healthy, peaceful, prosperous and joy filled 2018. Spread love and it will come back to you.
Love and Swing,
