Video-Chronicles of Cora Coleman-Dunham

Signature Vater Drumstick Artist Cora Coleman-Dunham sent us this mini-documentary video that gives a rare and unique look into her world performing with Beyonce and Prince. Enjoy!



Vater Queen Cora Coleman-Dunham Model 
This design is as versatile as Cora herself! Performing with artists like Prince and Beyonce, Cora needed a stick that could cover all genres of music without changing models. Cora’s design combines a little extra length and a gradual taper to an acorn tip to offer superb response, feel and dynamics in any musical application.

Kim Thompson visits Vater Factory

Vater Artist Kim Thompson (Mike Stern/Beyonce) recently had the time to visit Vater’s Factory in Massachusetts for the first time. Kim got to see every step of Vater’s production process first hand, including seeing the Vater 7A Wood (her stick of choice) being turned on a lathe.



“Visiting the Vater factory was one of the most incredible experiences!” Commented Kim Thompson.  "To see all the ground that transpires for one single stick was astounding and really added a height of inspiration to the overall visit. I definitely would do it again and I might even have get my hands dirty on the next visit. Thanks Vater!”


Check out Kim's Vater Artist Spotlight video here:


During her stay in Boston, Kim also appeared for a clinic with DiCenso’s Drum Shop, in Weymouth, MA. Kim opened the clinic sharing details about her musical journey from the time she was a kid up to her current projects. The clinic was then more-so directed towards the spiritual and emotional side to performing music and drumming.
