In my travels in playing drums and in talking and writing about them, I myself have never met anyone with more knowledge about how to construct, dissect, build, or understand drums and drum sounds than DW’s own John Good. John is widely known and respected in the industry and he indeed is a master of drums in so many different ways. In fact, you might remember that recently we sat down with DW’s founder, Don Lombardi, and Don talked about recruiting John when the idea and development of DW was in its infancy. (You can view that interview with Don Lombardi here). Thus, after a successful career as one of the most in demand drum techs, John went to work integrating his experiences with concepts that Don and John developed early on and the result was indisputable.
The duo wound up creating the highest quality drums around and decades later the success of the vision and hard work that these two men brought day in and day out is evident. DW stands as a recognized worldwide leader in drums. Players of all skill levels, genres, and nationalities turn to DW for their drum kits. Now, we get to hear from the master drum builder himself.
