Carol of the Pulley Bells

Happy holidays to everyone!

I hope you have a great holiday and a wonderful new year.  I have been wanting to record this song for a while now and thanks to some new equipment I was finally about to make it happen.  Carol of the Pulley Bells features several parts of the Motor Rhythms set.  Most of the notes are played on the one octave of pulley bells that I have, but the receiver drier chimes, brake drums, and clutch spring plates are also used.  I hope you enjoy it!

And I had to post this too, just because it is awesome.

Modern Drummer January 2014

The January 2014 issue of Modern Drummer features a Shop Talk article that I wrote.  The article is called Add Some Metal, and it is about adding pieces of the Motor Rhythms car part set to a traditional drum set. Thanks to Mike and everyone at the magazine for the awesome layout!
