Issue 6 - Virgil Donati - November 2018

sa.drummer.magazine

Featuring the mindbending drummer himself, Virgil Donati, We check out some sheet music straight from the man himself and also get a look at a few of his kits he loves using.

“There's something about hitting that record button, which demands the very best you can give.”
– Virgil Donati

Check out some amazing drummers:
• Virgil Donati
• Michael Schack
• Jonathan Bell
• Riaan Diedericks

We met up with Michael Schack, the king of hybrid drumming, during one of his clinics here in SA and also got around to shooting some great content for the SA drummer TV channel.

Do you ever wonder whether you are hitting the social media too hard, come read our article on that very topic to help you decide whether you should pull back or give it some more.

We have a look at the Sabian's Custom Shop and see what it's all really about.

take some time out to read about the best that the drum scene has to offer in the hybrid and acoustic kit scenes.

– SA Drummer Team.
