We asked...Why Gretsch?: 

"As soon as I acquired and played my first Round Badge 12,14,18 bop kit, I KNEW it was the sound for me.  It was the sound I had been hearing on my favorite records played by my favorite drummers for years.  I instantly felt like I had found my sonic home."

Advice to Aspiring Musicians: 

"Try to fall in love with the artistic and learning process.  If you fall in love with the process of improving yourself as an artist and a person, you’ll always be fulfilled because that process never ends."
