Out of the Drawer Percussion

Recently My younger brother and I took a trip to Appleton, Wisconsin to meet the guys at Out of the Drawer Percussion face to face! Here are a couple of videos that they took of us while we were messing around.

This tambourine foot pedal is really a one of a kind instrument! A couple months ago I told the guys at ODP that I was looking for a tambourine just like this and then left it up to their imaginations to do the rest. They did not let me down. Since I’ve been back in NYC I have used it on almost every gig. This instrument is so easy to use and I get the exact dynamic range and intonation that I was looking for! (And this is just the prototype)

Here are some pictures from our visit:

I was blown away by the craftsmanship and creativeness these guys have. Truly amazing that they are able to take old dressers, tables, church pews, etc. and turn them into amazing musical instruments.

They let me make my own shaker!

I literally felt like I had stepped into a magical place. Drums as far as the eye can see...and I got to play them all.

I couldn't leave without taking a few extra friends home!
