Josh Manuel  Hi, I'm Josh. I play drums in Issues. Session Drummer. Vynthor champion of the Nexus. Married to a mermaid. Signature drum samples available at

Jammin along to Summer Friends by Chance. First clip with the new Headspace kit which is hands down the best sounding kit I've ever owned. I've been working on getting more comfy with modulation a lot this year and finding ways to apply it practically. Also working through some new stickings for fills and trying to make them more musical instead of shreddy.

Signature drum samples available online, follow the link in my bio! โœŒ๐Ÿป

@welbornclayton appreciation post! So thankful for this dude right here. One of the most genuine, hard working, and driven people I've ever met. If you've ever spent 5 mins with Clayton you already know what I'm talkin about. Not only the best drum tech out there but one of my closest friends. Love ya bud!! ๐Ÿ“ธ @ryanvwatanabe
