Gear4music Now Stocking SJC Custom Drums
With humble beginnings in Mike and Scott Ciprari's (SJC) Grandmother's basement, SJC has since developed into one of the world's leading drum manufacturers and suppliers. As the Ciprari’s drum building skills progressed, they invited their friends to play their kits and to start to spread the word about SJC. Bands such as A Wilhelm Scream and Strike Anywhere were some of the first to endorse the brand.
SJC's turning point came when the musical sensation Panic! At the Disco played the MTV music awards in 2006. This pivotal moment enabled the brand to branch out and endorse a variety of bigger and more diverse bands like Hawthorne Heights, Aiden and Cobra Starship. Expanding their already impressive artist roster, SJC began to reach unprecedented heights and managed to move out of their grandmother's basement and into a warehouse, enabling them to introduce a small number of new dedicated staff to their team.
With an abundance of unique and custom designs across their acoustic kits and bespoke snare drums, SJC are adept at creating tailor-made kits for their extensive list of clients who often require very specific criteria to fulfil their desired sound. One such bespoke kit, designed by Gear4music is the SJC Drums Custom 22" 3 Piece Shell Pack 'The Kraken' - A completely original one-of-a-kind creation, which features a distinctive black and white Kraken scene wrap across the whole of the drum kit. With 100 percent Maple shells, the kit is as audibly outstanding as it is visually, perfectly exemplifying SJC's commitment to creating distinctive and dynamic kits that perfectly accentuate the drummers individual style. Embracing the game of innovation, SJC has consistently created drums that produce high quality tone and a distinct character, often to the exact specification of high profile artists.
Customers can even create their own custom kits via the Gear4music website. To create your dream kit, click here. Follow Gear4music.com on Facebook and Twitter to be the first to hear about the latest music gear offers and news.
