Progressive Death Metal artists, Highland, performed live at The Regent Theater in Los Angeles last Friday night. This was also the first night that Michael Semerdjian (Latest News 2/17) had his new 1.5 Steel--7.5 x 15 out live.
Michael mentioned to me he was skeptical of how a 15" drum would fit in with his playing and set-up. Subsequently he mentioned to me "It works, it fits, and it's classy...". Below are some more of his comments on this drum.
Gotta tell you Michael....You guys really impressed me. This band is so tight, so rehearsed....Your set was stellar. Congrats to all of you on that....Highland is a great band from A-Z, and I really hope you guys shy around the Midwest sometime. It would be great to see you live. Looking forward to all of the updates on the band, and your experience with your 1.5 Steel--7.5 x 15....
"The tuning range if this drum is HUGE. It cuts & cracks, and sounds fat & full at high tuning's even though it is a Steel shelled drum...."
