In this episode, Mike and Mike catch up after a few weeks of traveling, drum shows, and clinics, and then they dive into some news regarding Brady drums. They also discuss their favorite hi-hat sizes, and then they crack open the January 2016 issue of Modern Drummer to talk a bit about cover artist, Neil Peart of the legendary prog-rock band Rush. In the gear review section, they examine a one-of-a-kind snare from Provenance Drums that’s made from the side panel of an old, rusty VW van. As usual, the show concludes with the hosts’ picks of the week.
