INTERVIEW – NACIÓN PROGRESIVA

I sat down for an interview with Jorge from Nación Progresiva to talk about all things drumming. Recording with The Ocean in Iceland, giving drum lessons, learning new material, organizing my life etc. etc.

At the moment it’s only available in Spanish, but it’ll be re-published in English soon.

PROMARK ⇥ SIGNATURE DRUM STICKS

So this really happened..
Today i received my first ever own drum sticks and let me tell you this: They are absolutely mindblowingly beautiful!

Provided by Promark, this is a dream come true for me, i bet you can tell. I‘ve worked my a** off for years and i‘m really humbled to be in a position now, where things like these are even possible. Here are some pictures of these beauties:

Details:

With a diameter of .580“ these are somewhat in between 5A and 5B, 16 1/2“ long with an wooden teardrop tip and finally finished with the heated firegrain technique for longer durability!

I‘m out of words and will surely give these more than one run today! ♥️
Thank you for the support!

If you’re keen on grabbing a pair for yourself, feel free to visit my brand new webshop!

Yours,
Paul
