Today, two frame drum experts visited me at the MEINL headquarters in Gutenstetten - Norbert Eckermann and Nora Thiele.
I already introduced Norbert a few days ago. What can I say about him... he's a genius. His drums are just excellent. Period.
And Nora is a fantastic frame drum player. She didn't play much during our meeting, but once she held a good sounding Tar (North African / Middle East frame drum) in hands it just goes BAAAM! and I mean it... very impressive!
We checked the new Artisan Edition Frame Drums I created together with Norbert and we talked about many new ideas.
This was a very inspiring day for me and all I can say is - I learned a lot about this fine instruments.
Thanks guys for dropping by and I hope we see each other soon.
