Our friend Geordie (Guagua) in SF, sent me a pic of some brand spankin' Skin on Skin drums that were made for him by Jay Bereck, in upstate NY. I can imagine Geordie's excitement opening those boxes so close to Christmastime. They are some classy Cherry wood congas, and according to Geordie they are pretty light. Props to you Geordie for choosing to buy drums from a true artisan.

I have to say, the cherry set of SOS's ive played in the past are some of the nicest sounding drums in the world, to my ear.

Im curious to see Jay's and co.s latest work. Ill have to beg Geordie for a test run on them!

Way to go man.

Hey thanks for the post Rafael, but man don't hold out on us! We want to see your oak Matt Smith Ritmo! YOu got it already? Or soon I hope.

Yeah, way to go Geordie...good to see you guys on the blog. Jay has always had good hardware (from what I hear) but maybe the recent drums have even better lugs and what not...which is great of course.

I had a tough time deciding whether to go with SOS or Ritmo, but in the end since I already had a tumba from Matt, I wanted to complete the set. I am satisfied as I know Geordie is. I'll hopefully take some pics tonight and put them out there...
