I love the weight and balance. I also love the impact against the kick head as I’m playing! Well done!

Lester Estelle Jr. was born into a family saturated in music. Several members of his family possess musical talents far beyond the sphere of what we would consider ‘incredible’. So it is only fitting and right that Lester would follow in the footsteps of so many before him.

At the age of two Lester discovered ‘pots and pans’ and began his predestined journey of drumming. As an adolescent Lester and his parents opted to homeschool him so that he could tour and spend his formative teenage years experiencing what would eventually become his profession.

Today, Lester is one of the most respected drummers in the business. His studio and live credits include some of the biggest names in music including Kelly Clarkson, Big & Rich and Pillar, just to name a few. He is also the drummer for the house band on the wildly popular and Emmy-Award-Winning TV program, “The Kelly Clarkson Show.”
