"Whether you tighten them up for that classic "be-bop" tuning, or get them stompin' down low for that big fat sound, Noble & Cooley drums give me that focused, yet wide open tone that speaks with incredible clarity. The attention to design details and quality control is outstanding. They're simply the best drums I've ever played. -Jim Rupp
