We are very pleased to have Vater Artist and Smashing Pumpkins drummer Mike Byrne on the cover of the December 2010 issue of Drum! Magazine.
Mike's cover story is a great insight into how the 19 year old got the Smashing Pumpkins gig, his background and how his sound and style differs from previous drummer Jimmy Chamberlin. Mike Byrne is definitely a name that you will be hearing much more of in the near future!
The December 2010 Issue of Drum! is on sale now. Also be sure to check out the new Vater ad in this issue on page 59.
"Vater makes far and away the best sticks out there. The combination of perfect balance, excellent responsiveness and ridiculous durability makes me confident that every time I pick up a pair it's going to sound and feel great. The 5A wood tip is so well balanced it feels like an extension of my arm. It handles well at any dynamic level, and when I really need to dig in, getting that extra power is effortless. The stick practically does all the work for me!" -Mike Byrne
