Got a minute? ~ 1 Minute Drum Demo’s by Glen Coard
ACOUSTIC KIT: I have a new Yamaha Stage Custom 5 pc drumset. Gorgeous, with cool stage presence.
CAJON: Glen is an expert on this versatile, acoustic percussion instrument. It’s sometimes called, Drums in a Box because it can emulate everything from a full drumset (with “snare & bass drum” groove) to a percussion ensemble (“congas” and more).
