Eddie Bayers, one of the top session players of all time, recently acquired two drums from Beier Drums: A 1.5 Steel--4 x 15, and a 1.5 Steel--5.5 x 14. Since then....he has been using them non-stop, and also told me his 5.5 x 14 is his new "Go-To" in his non-stop session work. As well, the drums have met with major approval in the studio from engineers as well...Including Mark Capps.
Eddie was a referral from Mark Beckett (Grand Ole Opry, Olivia Newton John). Mark is also responsible for the design of a drum that has been extremely successful here...the 4 x 15. Tommy Harden was also nice enough to bring his 5.5 x 14 to Eddie to try out. You guys.....Are The Best.
Sometime soon I am hoping to be able to get out of here for a week so I can come to Nashville. I just simply have to sit down and talk to him about a career that is so extensive, and so legendary....It would be an unbelievable experience for me.
Eddie....Thank You for the call, and all of your communication. It is....Quite simply....An honor. Will be in touch.....
