Los Angeles Drum Services

While in California for the 2012 NAMM Show, we popped over to see our good friends at Los Angeles Drum Services. We thought we'd film a quick feature about them to show you what they're all about and give you an inside look into a different and cool side of the drum biz. While there, we ran into Vater Artists Brian Frasier-Moore (Madonna) and Chaun Horton (Natasha Bedingfield/Toni Braxton) who were "working" in the custom hardware shop!



Chris Achzet and Bobby Boos have a combined 50 years in the professional drumming area of the music business. It is this knowledge and skill level that open the door for all the services that LADS provide, From the musician just starting his professional career to music veterans, LADS can handle all your drumming needs. If you can think of a service that could benefit a professional drummer, more than likely LADS provides it.

Factory Tour Video

We have just posted a new Vater Factory Tour video. The video is a step-by-step overview from Alan Vater of the manufacturing process from the time it's a dowel all the way through being a finished drumstick in our warehouse.

See for yourself the hands-on care and quality assurance that your Vater sticks get every single day.
