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.

Exclusive Video: Morgan Rose of Sevendust

Vater spent some time with Artist Morgan Rose (Sevendust) while he was on tour. In Part 1, Morgan spoke in depth about his background, influences, his failed trip to MI in California, how Sevendust formed, filling in with Motley Crue, how he came up with the design for the Vater Alien Freak model and more.

In Part 2, Morgan shares his very personal experiences about the stress that being in a non-stop touring band has had on his body and relationships. He also talks about the music biz and how he has seen it change for artists first hand over the past 13 years since Sevendust started.

Part 1:



Part 2:
