The Most Epic Drum
Video We’ve Ever Made

Todd Sucherman  /  UPDATED Aug 22, 2022

In the most EPIC drum video we’ve ever filmed, we took two helicopters, a beautiful Pearl kit, and one of the best rock drummers of all time into the mountains of British Columbia – in the pouring rain!

This video is a tribute to drummers around the world. Drummers are a rare and amazing breed. We dedicate entire rooms of our homes to our passion, we buy vehicles based on how our drums will fit, and we set up our kits in the craziest of situations all because of our LOVE for music.

We’re so thankful for the drum companies who supported this ambitious project including Pearl, Remo, Pro-Mark, Audix, and Sabian.

And a huge thank you to Mischa Gelb and BC Helicopters for making this video possible. If you’d like to follow their incredible adventures (including a helicopter trip around the world), make sure to check out Mischa’s YouTube channel.
