Hello Drum Paradise,

Yes, the problem with my new Hitmaker is that I cannot stop playing it! I
will be getting rid of my other 2 brass snares now! This is quite simply
the best brass snare drum that I have ever played/heard. It is sensitive
and articulate, and has plenty of depth. It will open up to brightness
easily for a nice dry ring. I could go on and on. It sounds better then
any Black Beauty or Supra that I have played. I am curious to know how much
of this magic sound is also due to the 42 strand snares (I had never played a
snare with them before), and the reverse power dot, top head? I am really
looking forward to how the drum will sound “under the mic” in a few weeks
with Syriah Smith.

Thank you for getting the drum built and delivered in such an expedient
fashion as well (and thanks to Chris). I do appreciate it!

As I had also mentioned, I will be in the market for a wood “WOW” drum also.
I don’t know whether to go with a sold exotic wood, a segmented (Greg
Gaylord) drum, or what? I have heard great things about the Cocobolo,
Cherry, & Walnut woods, and of course a Brady isnt out of the question
either.

I would love to know what your all-time, top 5 wood snare drums are at the
moment, or which are most popular within Drum Paradise’s arsenal? This will
give me a great reference point to start with.

Thanks again for all of your great help and thoroughness Lee, and I will
surely let you know how my recording date goes with the Hitmaker also. This
in addition to spreading the word about what a great instrument that this is!

All the best to you!

Jeff Jones

Bottom of the 9th . . .
Tuesday August 9th:

Right now we’re watching baseball with Lee the owner of Drum Paradise
(where we rented our drums), and drum tech extraordinaire for this
session. He’s an LA Angels fan, and they are kicking ass right now. He,
needless to say, is stoked. Lee’s worked on a ton of records, and is
just as guilty of aiding in our awesome drum sounds as Dr. Dave
Schiffman “Producer Man” is.

This is one of the last days of basic tracking. Jesse Jones flew out
today to help get things ready for the Toronto Green Day show on Friday.
We hit “depleted uranium is a war crime” this morning… super fast
verse and chorus, leads way to its dark drawn out ending. I put my money
on this song ending the record, but my money is worthless…
Ping pong. Justin, myself, 4 games, 2 wins each…

I had some Vegan Express chicken sandwiches for lunch; then tracked “No
Future” and “1 Trillion Dollars” back to back…

We’re gonna add some drum perks in to end the night, come in fresh and
hit the last song, and maybe one or 2 more for good measure…
Also, I’ve got a fleet of extremely intelligent elves/gnomes working on
uploading the pictures so give me a day or so…

Hope you are all awesome.

much love and respect

Subject: Session 2/28-3/1 for Curt Cuomo at Cornerstone

This goes to Mike Rose.

Mike, my name is Dan Morris and I was the drummer for the session listed above. I wanted to sincerely thank you for putting together such an amazing package of great sounding drums and cymbals! You’re awesome and Jarrett was really cool to talk to when he delivered the gear. Thanks for everything! Those Hitmaker snares are nasty! How can I get my hands on one? Take care and hope to see you again very soon!
