<![CDATA[S3 E6: Helensson's Bob Shepard, creator of Headcaster]]> Mon, 13 Aug 2018 02:00:37 GMT 26:06 5b70d7d7af8851455e133267 no http://helensson.com From analog to digital Bob, is inventing the future for drummers. full 3 6 Digital technology presented an electronic drumming future made more convenient, lighter weight, and cheaper; and that’s where the market went. But for a smaller group of e-drummers, analog was still what they wanted. The industry moved on, and it created opportunities for people like Bob Shepard, an electrical and radio frequency tech in the telecomm industry by day, and reverse engineering Synare circuitry in his free time. And he kept building them until retirement, when he started his company, Helensson.


Bob isn’t some luddite analog purist unwilling to look forward. Despite starting out emulating obsolete technology, he’s embraced digital percussion with quite possibly the most flexible, capable trigger on the market. And he’s become one of the most forward-looking music-product designers today with his latest product, Headcaster, which debuted at Summer NAMM. This brilliant reverse projector can display lyrics, sheet music, and more, in crisp detail on your rack tom’s batter head, and it’s powered by an Android device complete with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and all the latest digital consumer technology.

S3 E4 REMIX!!! INDe Drum Lab founder Josh Allen S3 E4 REMIX!!! INDe Drum Lab founder Josh Allen Mon, 16 Jul 2018 02:12:39 GMT 21:29 5b4bff19d399406e05d3e6e6 no http://indedrum.com Josh Allen left his stable post at Ludwig to start INDe Drum Lab full 3 4 In Season One, one of your favorite episodes was the one with Josh Allen, founder of INDe Drum Lab. So we’ve decided to remix it and make it more digestible. Let us know what you think at drumshowroom.com.


Josh decided that staying at Ludwig was holding him back from creating something that was truly his due to the brand’s amazing history and lineage. He wanted more of a clean slate from which to create.


Despite his corporate management and design expertise, at his core, Josh is a builder. He thinks in solutions to problems that take form as physical products. And he’s not unwilling to be honest with himself about where needs to work the hardest.


There’s a section of the INDe site at INDedrum.com titled, “Tech, Design and Nerdery.” I couldn’t think of a more fitting headline for talking shop with Josh. It got very geeky. If you love the nuts and bolts of drums, you’re really going to enjoy Josh Allen’s design philosophy.


Josh’s comes from an industrial design background. Industrial designers focus on the physical embodiment of the design. What does it look like? What is it made out of? What does it feel like in the hand? By contrast, mechanical engineers think in terms of function. How does this thing work? I enjoyed talking to Josh because he can talk like both an industrial designer, which is is by education, but also as a mechanical designer.


One of the things many drum companies focus on in their marketing is their bearing edges. And Josh has a really succinct, clear way of talking about the function and variables that matter in bearing-edge design.


What I think impressed me the most in talking with Josh is how he is just a systems thinker. He’s not just thinking about the systems that make up a great drum, but he’s also engineering a great drum ownership experience through INDe’s business model.

S3 E3 Tackle Instrument founder Scott McPherson S3 E3 Tackle Instrument founder Scott McPherson Mon, 09 Jul 2018 16:06:54 GMT 30:02 5b43881e676fe3e3538fa5b7 no http://drumshowroom.com Behind Tackle is a professional touring drummer, Scott McPherson full 3 3 Chances are, you’ve seen a recent influx of classic-looking waxed canvas and leather-trimmed stick bags, cymbal bags, and other thoughtful accessories in your drum shop or Instagram feed. Maybe you first noticed Carter MacLean or Mike Johnston using them. Or maybe you saw them in Steve Maxwell’s fine shops in New York and Chicago. In any case, it feels like everywhere you go, you see Tackle Instrument Supply Company’s wares.


You probably know the name, but you might not know that behind Tackle is a professional touring drummer named Scott McPherson. Scott came out of Portland, and now lives and operates Tackle from Minneapolis. Scott has built long-term playing relationships with Elliott Smith, Bright Eyes, She & Him, Beck and many others. And when Scott came through Asheville with the “Him” of She & Him, M. Ward, he sat down for breakfast and some conversation that I really enjoyed.


And in case you’re not aware, Tackle produces some things you’re probably familiar with, like stick bags and cymbal bags; accessories like bass drum hoop protectors, impact patches, and cymbal sizzlers; and also a third category of unique problem solvers that only could come from the mind of somebody who has dedicated themself to the craft of performance at the drums. Tackle’s Gig Pouch, Gig Pocket, Shop Rag, leather cymbal washers, and other items all help drummers with the problems they face performing, setting up, and moving their drums.


Thanks to Green Sage Cafe for letting us sit and record… and thanks to this week’s audio producer, Ben Etter, for cleaning and processing the background noise! Here’s Scott McPherson of Tackle Instrument, and this is Drum Showroom.


I want to thank Scott McPherson for being so generous with his time. Not only did we talk for literally a couple of hours, but we also hung out for lunch and checked out some antiques, and then he invited my wife and me to see him perform that night at Asheville’s famous Orange Peel rock club with M Ward. Scott’s a no-nonsense player with superb musicality, selflessness, and tone for days. He sounded great.

Fred and I have collaborated to offer a special price for listeners on his new double snare and snare/tom combo bags. You can get the Beato double snare bag custom made to fit any sizes, in either Pro I or Cordura, for $125 including shipping within the continental US. Or get a combo snare/tom bag for $140 including shipping. Details inside.---Fred Beato is the founder, president, and personality behind Beato bags. Proudly handcrafted in Huntington Beach, CA, USA, Beato bags are the choice of many of the world’s top drummers including Gregg Bissonette, Dennis Chambers, Tico Torres, Nigel Olsson, and Tris Imboden. Fred was born in Havana, Cuba, and immigrated to Florida at age 10, without his parents. Shortly after arriving, The Beatles grabbed ahold of the nation’s attention and inspired young Freddy to pursue a path as a drummer. For more than 35 years he has prided himself on manufacturing a quality product that is made in America, and his cell phone number is accessible to every customer: professionals and future stars alike. I have known Fred for more than 20 years and have been huge advocate of his Pro I bags since my retail days. Talking with him was fun. He paints a vivid picture of coming to America in the 60s, and reminds us of the place music held in popular culture at that time. He’s a real person and his willingness to share his flaws and shortcomings – as well as the successes – was refreshing.
