LYNYRD SKYNYRD LEGEND ARTIMUS PYLE-LIVE WITH THE ARTIMUS PYLE BAND-BEIER 1.5 STEEL--6.5 X 14~

Got this pic in this morning from Monte Yoho of The Outlaws. They were at Freedom Fest in Allentown, New Jersey with the Artimus Pyle Band this last weekend. Artimus is using his 1.5 Steel--6.5 x 14 live. From Monte: "He told me your snare was the best snare he has ever played, and is his go-to drum. He said it sounded incredible playing it light, or digging into it. He was thrilled to be playing it." The Artimus Pyle Band is just an utterly spectacular, talent-filled band....Every single one of them. Jerry Lyda is also in the pic. Jerry is a guitar virtuoso, the owner of Music City Asheville, and is also an Authorized Dealer for Beier Drums. He just received another 1.5 Steel--5.5 x 15 in Gloss White in the store. and any size of Beier Drums can be ordered through him. Thank You Monte, Artimus & Jerry!
















RANDY VAUGHN OF DAMAGED GOODS-BEIER 1.5 STEEL SNARE--5.5 X 14~

Wanted to take time out here to send a very heartfelt Thank You to Randy Vaughn of Damaged Goods in Northeastern New York. Randy has had his Beier 1.5 Steel--5.5 x 14 for about three years now, and the drum has seen extensive use live, and in the studio. Damaged Goods plays live consistently in their region, and I am just always delighted to see he has his drum. How do I know that? His wife Shelley takes some of the best pics I recieve. Randy-That drum always looks brand new, and to hear your feedback all of the time makes my day-Always. The fact that you chose it over your Supra, after being a devotee for decades of that drum, just is the icing on the cake. The Supra...Is one of my all-time favorites as well along with the Acrolite. Thanks Again For Everything.....

THE OUTLAWS AND BLACKHAWK-LIVE IN ARLINGTON HEIGHTS-MONTE YOHO-BEIER 1.5 STEEL--6.5 X 14 & 5.5 X 14~

The non-stop Southern Rock & Country Train of The Outlaws and Blackhawk rolled through Arlington Heights, Illinois last week. It is always so great to see these guys, and I was particularly happy that Blackhawk was opening. Without fail...These guys deliver. I have seen them many times, and no matter what venue, what conditions, they prove themselves to be some of the greatest Southern Rock musicians in history. Add to that...They have just finished their fourth decade of live performance and recording. And after all of this time....They are as talented and creative as ever.

Monte Yoho has been using the Beier 1.5 Steel--6.5 x 14 for quite some time exclusively, and uses his 1.5 Steel--5.5 x 14 as an auxiliary. I will be posting a great webcam of Monte during The Outlaws set. He also just recorded at Chris Anderson's studio with his Beier 2mm Brass with Blackhawk. Very much looking forward to that release.

Thanks Again Monte and all of you guys. Great time. Also Henry...I really appreciate the introduction during the show. That was...Pretty damn funny man...

FRANK VILARDI-BACON BROTHERS LIVE-BEIER 1.5 STEEL--5.5 X 14 & 6.5 X 14

Special Thanks to Frank Vilardi (Bacon Brothers, Jewel, Donny Osmond) and the Bacon Brothers for a great time this week. Every time I see this band, I marvel at the mix of styles, how flawless your performances are, the excellence of your sound engineer, the efficiency and talents of your crew, and what a downright bunch of cool guys you are to hang with. Thanks as always Frank for taking your 1.5 Steel--5.5 x 14 on the road as your main, which it has been for quite some time...And also for using it on the last Bacon Brothers record-36 Cents. Hope the new 1.5 Steel--6.5 x 14 works out great. Nice to hear the initial response is that everyone is loving the drum so far. Hope to see you all sooner than later.....












MIKE COLLINS LIVE WITH METTS-RYAN-COLLINS-BEIER 1.5 STEEL--5.5 X 14

Thank You Mike Collins (Throwback Suburbia, Earl Slick, Dilana) for this pic from last weeks live show with Metts, Ryan & Collins. It was so great to see your 1.5 Steel--5.5 x 14 behind your kit, and to hear it on the bands debut. I posted many months ago, but will say it again here: For anyone who likes driving "Old School" melodic rock, thoughtful compositions, and stellar musicianship...Metts, Ryan & Collins are a must see and listen. You guys....Are simply great. Hope you shy around the Midwest sometime soon...I will be there. Would not miss it. Thanks Mike...
