FRANK VILARDI-BACK IN THE STUDIO WITH THE BACON BROTHERS-BEIER 1.5 STEEL--6.5 X 14...

It was fun to chat with Frank Vilardi today. He was back in the studio last Thursday with the Bacon Brothers, and I really was very happy to hear his 1.5 Steel--6.5 x 14 was on the track that he used a metal drum on. He mentioned to me that for years his go-to was his Ferrone, and that has been replaced by his 1.5 Steel--6.5 x 14. His go-to in wood is a Maple Masters Custom.

Frank has had an amazing career, and was the long-time drummer and traveled the world with Jewel. He also held the seat with Donny Osmond for many, many years, and has been with the Bacon Brothers for over a decade. His main touring drum with them has been his 1.5 Steel--5.5 x 14 for a number of years now, and the 1.5 Steel--6.5 x 14 is as well now. I have seen them a number of times, and it is always a great time. They are an eclectic and diverse band, and are phenomenal live.

Thanks as always Frank. Really looking forward to seeing you guys soon....!
