SJC has been following the entire Alternative Press tour in support of all the drummers on the tour - Foley from As It Is, Brian from Real Friends, and Jake from Mayday Parade. It's been so awesome meeting all you drummers that come to the shows, and we can't wait to giveaway the SJC/AP snare drum we've had at our booth every night! To see what we've been up to on the tour, check out this video!
We put just over 10,000 miles on our bus visiting over 25 cities, and speaking at over a dozen School of Rock locations, universities, high schools, and performing arts schools. Our best memories from the tour were definitely meeting all the SJC drummers out there - new and old, and making new friends with fellow drummers at the shows. Speaking at the schools and meeting young inspired musicians was definitely a major highlight as well. We'd speak about business, the music industry, manufacturing drums, and their aspirations as a musician. Definitely a humbling and inspiring thing to meet and speak to so many hungry musicians!
Brian Blake from Real Friends has been using our Tour Series kit - check out this video to hear what he has to say about it!

This kit is 100% Hand Crafted in the USA and starts at only $123/mo!
