TOMMY HARDEN AND HIS BEIER 1.5 STEEL--4 X 15....THE FIRST ONE IN TEXTURED BLACK~

Nashville legend, session player, and long time Reba McEntire drummer Tommy Harden just received his Beier 1.5 Steel--4 x 15 this last week, and absolutely loved it. He was looking to fill a void in mid-range tones he was missing in his selection of drums, and this drum filled it. The word "Piccolo" most always brings to mind a high pitched, high tension sound. This drum-The 1.5 Steel--4 x 15 is not that. The Mid/Bottom and dynamics on this drum are enormous. This was also the first one done in Black Texture Coating. The other color this drum is offered in is Gloss White. This entire drum was the idea of Mark Beckett-The color, the specs, the type of lugs, etc.., I was simply the person who manufactured it. So the credit goes to Mark, along with a huge Thank You from me. Tommy heard this drum at a show at the Winstar Casino when Mark was performing with Olivia Newton John. He loved the drum, and I could not be happier he now has one. Right out of the box he used it on a song for The Nashville Show. Like always, I will update this article as material comes out. Thanks Tommy...Looking forward to working with you. Check for tour dates to see him live, & see the YouTube links below for clips of the Olivia Newton John show where Tommy saw Mark with the 1.5 Steel--4 x 15...
