Sleishman Drums

I've been a Sleishman endorser since 1998.

They're gearing up for a big U.S. push.

Here are the kits.

Enjoy

Do you play the Sleishman centerized Dbl BD pedal?

No; just the drums, although I was at the Sleishman  Booth at NAMM for 3 days a couple of years ago and spent a lot of time with the pedal.  It sure feels good.

Cheers

Are there distriubutors/retailers in the states??  I'd love to play around with a kit and test the tuning ranges, etc....

Are they actually "easy to tune" as stated? How does head changing go?

It doesn't look like you can tune the top and bottom heads differently for the pitch bend effect (I know, not everyone wants it).  Can you achieve that effect with these drums?

Thanks for sharing.

The tuning between top and bottom head is totally independent and you have complete control as to tension or differences there-in between the heads.

The shells only have 1 small hole in them as all the lugs and tom mounts are external to the toms.

The drums tune up effortlessly.

I did CNN in 1998 with a Sleishman Kit at SIR in Hollywood and the engineer said it was the best sounding kit he had ever heard.  I've had the same comment countless times since.

David and I are discussing setting up a showcase shop in L.A.  If that doesn't pan out I know they have a business contact in Las Vegas who will be setting up a showroom.

I gotta see one of these.  I don't quite get it.  Let us know when you get some in showrooms.
