We respect many drummers. We respect many visual artists. As the drummer for the band Tortoise, as well as an illustrator and tattoo artist, John Herndon fits into both of those categories.

The detail on these beaters is ridiculous, and whomever is lucky enough to snatch one up will own a true piece of art.

Please note: Since we give artists the freedom to decorate their beaters however they want, the finishes on some artist series beaters may not be as durable as standard Low Boy beaters. Do not fear…they sound and feel the same as all of our wood beaters, but you may notice extra wear at the point the beater hits the head.
