Very Happy to be endorsing and working with ProMark D'Addorio

The guys at ProMark and D'Addorio are truely doing some amazing stuff.  My most favorite brush in the world the TB-3 is a cross between a nice vintage brush and a brush from the 21st century.  And let me just tell you that there's some great sticks now....   BUT more on the way.  Some really really great stuff.  Thank you Rob and all the other guys for working so hard on this stuff.
