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!”

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.
