watch a video of David Letterman asking a bunch of different bands, “Are those your drums?”


For those keeping score, your man Klaus has played drums in many many unpopular and unsignable bands since 1991. I’ve dragged my 1964 Ludwig Oyster Black Pearl 4 piece kit (2nd rack tom not shown) with 1965 Gretsch snare (all of which were purchased in North Dartmouth, Massachusetts for $175) from one end of the earth (the Northeast) to the other (the Midwest mostly) hundreds of times. ‘Tis a gorgeous kit, in phenomenal condition, and I have endured hundreds if not millions of compliments regarding it’s eye-watering beauty. I am a man who appreciates a nice set of drums. And I’m a man who appreciates a man who appreciates a nice set of drums.
