That's Andy's kit.

Yolanda was a combo of me wanting a walnut segmented build and Andy immediately suggesting the maple hoops.
It was the first walnut segmented and I want to say the first really contrasting color kit. Walnut stave kits were done at that point (summer 2015) but not walnut segmented.
Which makes me smile.

Thank you for everything Andy.
No Larry, thank you for your encouragement and friendship - never forgotten :)

I love the pic of Yvonne. Give her my regards please. She is so much fun.
I will :)

guru were always sounding so sweet, a true gem in the drum world <3
Thank you!

We talk of dream kits. This is mine. It's so rare. Did anyone ever order a double bass kit?
Thank you, & yes, just once.

That's Andy's kit.
Mostly, but I only really use it as a 6 piece. Nice to have options though :)

Walnut stave kits were done at that point (summer 2015) but not walnut segmented.
Which makes me smile.
Absolutely Larry. Other segmented pieces were already made, and walnut was in the works as we moved away from steam bent & stave to standardise on segmented. You're requirement coincided nicely with that transition, & I'm so pleased you received the very first customer kit produced :)

Is that Stanton Moore at the Guru stand?
Yup :) No association whatsoever, but lovely guy.
