Feel (and sound) like I haven’t practiced in forever. Figured I’d beat a hole through the snare until I felt better. πŸ₯πŸ₯

Had a present come in the mail today. 14” x 6.5” steel shell, Puresound wires, and a trick 3 position throw off. Massive tuning range, sounds good low or high. Thanks to Ed over at @drumfliped for the sale and Buddy at @lovecustomdrums for the drum. Looking forward to more Love Custom Drums in the future. πŸ₯πŸ₯πŸ₯πŸ₯πŸ₯πŸ₯πŸ₯πŸ₯πŸ₯πŸ₯πŸ₯πŸ₯ #drums #snare #lovecustomdrums #drum #drummer

I bought a 70’s era no name snare a while back for next to nothing. I expected it to be pretty trash, but I’m very surprised. I’ve got it tuned super dry, but it actually has a wide tuning range. It’s 3ply with maple re-rings. Good thing about my neighbors being in Florida all the time is I don’t have to worry about the cops being called when I play past 6 πŸ˜‚. πŸ₯πŸ₯πŸ₯πŸ₯πŸ₯πŸ₯πŸ₯πŸ₯πŸ₯πŸ₯πŸ₯πŸ₯πŸ₯πŸ₯πŸ₯πŸ₯πŸ₯πŸ₯ #snare #drum #tama #meinl #drums

Perfect night for a Bats game. Not much better to do on a Tuesday night!

Breaking up the drum monotony. We took some β€œShady” pics at work a few months back for the yearbook. The caption is sure to read, β€œHow to be a tool 101” πŸŒžπŸ˜ŽπŸ˜ŽπŸŒžπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚. #Blockinoutthehaters #youcantseeme #icantseeyou #dontbelikeme #tool #notcool #tuesdaymotivation

Rediscovered β€œJust wanna’ Say” by Israel Houghton today. Had to work around a little with the opening beat. My neighbors are snowed in and can’t escape my noise πŸ₯πŸ₯πŸ₯πŸ₯πŸ₯πŸ₯πŸ₯πŸ₯ #Tama #Meinl #Church #Drums

I was able to bring my set last night to our service at Jeff High (big thanks to the guys who helped with set up and tear down). It was the first time I heard the rig outside of my little practice room. I was very happy with how good it sounded, and I felt extremely comfortable playing it. I’m very excited to take this rig with me to a new home very soon. #Tama and #Meinl sound great together, I’m pleased with my choices 😁.

For the last 3 months or so, outside of my job at Winston I’ve been working on a contract basis with a company called MailHaven. I’ve been designing the Fit, Function, and Sealing of the Box which receives packages and stores them safely from elements (and theft) for the customer. It’s an innovative package receiving device integrated with an app that tracks all your orders across multiple platforms and carriers. They’ve been backed by UPS and some other large companies who have faith in the product. Check them out if you have a minute.
Recently, the design I’ve been working on (Gen 2 Units) had the first unit manufactured, and I’m pretty ecstatic. The first unit came together almost flawlessly, and looks fantastic which is quite a feat in the Engineering world (nothing ever goes together like we want it to the first time) πŸ˜…. All that said, I’m pumped to help a Startup from Louisville grow into a full scale business and get their feet off the ground.

Here are some pics of the build, I’m proud to be a small part of the team that has accomplished a LOT in a short window of time. In the next week you will see them on the news, and in the weeks to come they will be installed into some customers homes for a Beta rollout in Louisville. I love Being a part of innovation, especially something started so close to home.
I’m excited to see what comes next for MailHaven!

I promise I’m done for a while, I think.
