“I got the opportunity to to play the 7x14 Apollo snare and it’s literally awesome. It has this warm crack to it, and when it was all dialed in and everything in the studio it just had the girth that you wanted. It just sounded fat, and I don’t know how else to describe it, it’s crazy, but it’s sexy man, like it just looks so good. I think SJC’s done a super good job at just providing a product that is (high) quality, and it sounds great, looks great, and feels great.” - Jake Bundrick (Mayday Parade)
