Awolnation’s Isaac Carpenter

“When we were rehearsing for the latest album,” says modern pop group Awolnation’s drummer, Isaac Carpenter, “Masters of Maple owner Sahir Hanif brought his bell brass snare, and it seemed like our band sounded twenty-five-percent better. You can hit it on the side [of the head] or in the middle, and it always has such a good tonal quality. It’s not overly loud; it just has such great presence. It has all the cliché attributes that you’d want in a snare: great top-end volume with nice low end that hits you in the chest.
