"Since the Band's creation we have been looking for ways to improve our show and adding a Kick Drum has always been something we've wanted to do. Thanks to our friend Shawn Ryan, at Salt Drums in California, we've finally found a way to make it possible. With his expertise we we're able to design The Ultimate Busking Kit which has taken our show to the next level."
"I was so impressed with his drums that I had him custom make me a full Aluminum drum kit to my exact specifications.
The drums exceeded my expectations and consider them a museum piece as the quality, sound and build are flawless.
Shawn, in my humble opinion is the best drum builder, as well as a heck of a nice guy."
