SJC Custom Drums co-founder and CEO Mike Ciprari joined Octave Media’s Matt Jacoby on his podcast, Behind the Backline, to discuss everything from growing up with his brother Scott to founding the 5-time winner of the Best Custom Drum company.
Together, Mike and Matt delved into SJC Custom Drums’ early days in their grandma’s basement, where Mike watched Scott refurbish and build drums for friends. From there, Scott began building drums and Mike moved into a sales role, and they never looked back. Mike shares the pivotal role his grandmother played in the business’s evolution and the deep appreciation the brothers feel for her love and support.
Above all, Mike and Scott never lost sight of their passion for the work, which led them to create high quality custom drums that are now used by esteemed musicians such as Tre Cool of Green Day, Jay Weinberg of Slipknot, and Josh Dun of Twenty One Pilots.
