"In making my #GroovemasterSHEDSERIES videos, without the use of mics, headphones, etc., I must be certain that my drums blend in perfectly with the recordings and/or backing tracks. Obviously, using a wooden stick under these conditions would result in the drums overpowering the tracks. For me, the #Rute505 vinyl rods are the perfect ingredient for this recipe. These rods {not brushes}, allow me to have the perfect touch on the drums and cymbals for my particular video recording environment. They also maintain the tuning/tone of the drums as if I were using a wooden stick. With me being a drummer that relies heavily on my ears, dynamics, perception and feel, the #Rute505 rods are tailor made for my style of playing in this scenario. In live shows, recordings & rehearsals, I use the American Classic 5A/5B wooden sticks. A very special shout-out to #vicfirthsticksbrushesrodsmalletts ...and also to my homegirl and sister, drummette #camillegainerjones for the "inside" track! ~Groovemaster~ #vicfirth4Life ***You can visit the #GroovemasterSHEDSERIES @ www.youtube.com/thegroovemaster22
