is the same exact brush that Gene Krupa and Buddy Rich used
during their careers and is the same brush Don is using
now. I worked for Slingerland as a supervisor for fourteen
years so that's how I learned to make these brushes. Because
Buddy used Slingerland drums for many years, my father knew
him very well. I of course got to know him and developed
an ear for what Buddy wanted in snare drums and I ended
up being the guy who made and tuned his snare drums when
needed. I saw the band enough and got to know what he wanted
and always remembered the sound he would explain to me.
I still remember the sound to this day and could do it again
if he were still alive.
