Nicholas took delivery of a sweet cherrywood kit and man do they look nice but the sound... Stay tuned because as soon as we get audio/video it's going up!...
Born in Albuquerque, NM and raised in Southern Colorado - Nicholas has had the opportunity to play with several great jazz artists. Playing music since he was 5 - Nicholas played Tenor Sax, Piano and Marimba but eventually found his voice on the drums. Focusing mostly on Jazz and being heavily influenced by artists such as Chick Corea and John Coltrane - Nicholas has used his playing as a vehicle to perform across the US and parts of Europe. Nicholas is focused on bringing The Delbert Anderson Trio's musical perspective to the Jazz scene.

But hey, first impressions... says Nicholas:
The quality of their drums are amazing - not only are Bernie Stone (Owner and founder) and Kenton Snyder (Artist Relations) awesome guys...but what they've done with modernizing the Slingerland style of shell construction and vintage essence is amazing. They're truly artisan drums....these guys actually make the shells and work on the entire kit from the ground up....not just buying shells from Keller and slapping on some tube lugs like a lot of boutique drum guys are doing.
