Fun in the swamp with the outlaws
It’s not always about the drums, sometimes it’s good to get a feel of where it came from. Just before shipping this drum out to my friend Tom Everson, I asked if we could do a small sound sample. So Derrick Wilkerson and I put on our mud boots and loaded up the gear and took off to the swamp. I think we got bit by more mosquitoes than ever. As soon as we started to play the frogs and snakes started coming out, as if they wanted to say something too. We waited for them to stop, decided to carry on! It was so hot, the camera lens need to be wiped off every minute or so. Risking our life from getting bit by alligators and snakes. Anything for drums RIGHT?? Overall it was a fun day that we won’t forget. More info on the wood where this drum came from: Since 1937 the Okefenokee Swamp has been protected from human progress. It is the largest swamp in North America. It covers approximately 700 square miles in the southeastern corner of Georgia and is home to more than 400 species of vertebrates, including more than 200 types of birds and 60 kinds of reptiles. Indians call this swamp “Land of the trembling earth”. Sabian 24″HH Pandora Ride Cymbal, the best I ever heard!!
