Vater Welcomes the Staff of The Drum Lab to their Education Family
Vater Percussion is very pleased to welcome the entire staff of The Drum Lab in Sacramento, CA to their Education Artist Family. Now using Vater sticks exclusively are Serge Lysak, Chris Brawley, Christian Midthun and Mai-Tsaro "STIXX" Johnson.The Drum Lab is Sacramento’s first and only school of drumming.
The Drum Lab opened their doors in May of 2005 and in doing so set a new standard for drumming education in the Sacramento area. Now with over 130 students, The Drum Lab continues to offer a comprehensive, hands-on education in contemporary drumming techniques and styles.Each of The Drum Lab’s instructors specializes in a different musical style. They help each incoming student choose the instructor that best fits the style of music they want to learn. The staff also encourages students to move around periodically from teacher to teacher so that they can absorb as many influences as possible.
“For years I would bounce from stick to stick and not quite have that perfect stick or I would have issues with the consistency of other stick brands. After using Vater’s Los Angeles 5A, I quickly made up my mind and noticed a big difference in the quality and consistency that Vater delivered over the others. Also to add to this, the company and the people that I work with at Vater are just incredible. Adding in all these factors, I feel very fortunate to now have myself and the other instructors of The Drum Lab become a part of the Vater Family!” -Serge Lysak, Owner of The Drum Lab
