Default Just got endorsed!

By a local company called Casey Drums, based out of Abbotsford, BC. These drums are niiiiiiiiiiice.

I recently played a gig on a loaner (my kit hasn't been built yet..)

This is the kit, so nice!!
The drums are so warm and the tone is just beautiful

I think the shells are Keller, but I'm not totally sure.

Just curious......

Lots of drum companies popping up these days and these are in my neck of the woods.

Do they have a website Sean?

I'm a sucker for wood hoops! I've looked at the FB page and they look like really nice drums. Lucky man!

Yeah, they're super nice!
Their site is http://caseydrums.com/ its not complete yet though, so your best bet is to search Casey Drums on facebook.

Funny, a number of people have asked that question, but no, he has nothing to do with it. The guy who is building these drums applied many times at Ayotte...maybe they should have hired him?? Haha.

Last I checked, Ayotte hasn't really been doing much these days...

Ayotte's are fantastic. By far my favorite kit I've ever put my hands on. I was working in Rattle and Drumfor work experience and had to put together a 6 pc (no snare) kit in natural maple finish from the box. It was horrible. I kept thinking I was at home putting together my new kit. They're still selling the kit in the store for 2000 sterling because there is a slight scratch on the bass drum from the shipment which is barely noticeable. I hate being 15 without extremely rich parents!

Nice looking drums. Are you a touring drummer, and if so can this company support you on the road? Will you have kits waiting for you in the cities you will visit? (Something that is vital)

I rarely tour, and when I do, I use the same kit for the whole tour. I don't really like idea of a different kit in every city, I feel like I would need more time to get used to each kit, even if they were the same specs.
Plus, my gigs aren't quite on that scale where I would be flying out to different cities for large one-off gigs

Sean,

Nice drums. Can you post a close-up photo of the tom mount being used? It looks like a non-RIMS system.

Also, do you have any sound files?

Again, nice kit.

I don't think that is that vital. Even the biggest companies can only swing this stuff for the biggest artists, and even then probably only if it's something like a t.v. appearance or a huge gig. Especially if it's a custom company they are not going to have a bunch of kits waiting around to be sent out for gigs for nothing more than the exposure.

I will say this though alot of the smaller custom builders do have really great service and help their artists out. I know C&C customs sent a kit out to one of their artists when their bands trailer got stolen and they lost all their gear, I don't remember what band though...

I end up playing on rented kits a few times a year, and you take what you get. Most of the time if your in a big city like l.a., n.y., nashville, etc. you get really good gear. Even in houston I get really nice kits, but most of the time you get whatever brand they have. 90% of the time it is either a dw or a yamaha custom kit.

That's really cool.

Checked out the FB page, and the music/singing isn't my thing, but your drumming is cool.
I'm always amazed at the sound of the fast DB/snare how if it's done well, it's sort of a smooth "all in one" continuous sound.
Pretty neat.
Nice looking kit.

Good luck with it!

C&C have great customer service and take extremely good care of their artists. Any major city has a kit waiting if need be. So... Yes, there are companies that have kits in every major city and country for their endorsers to use. Now, there is a flip-side though. Cartage fees...

I like your band, it's very interesting music. The clean vocals remind me of Nevermore, and everything else is just awesome. Great kit, great drumming, GREAT BAND!
