Yanni Sofianos got into drumming at the early age of 8, but it wasn't till a short time later that his older brother would end up buying him a N&C black magic toy drum kit, that would end up changing his life forever and submerge him into the world of drumming! He's been influenced by a wide range of drummers including Dave Weckl, Dennis Chambers, and Buddy Rich to extreme drummers Gene Hoglan, Derek Roddy, Flo Mounier, and George Kollias for their speed and precision!
He's recorded drums on the album "Transmissions Through Oil and Blood" with CT metal band Guerra, and has now gone onto joining tech/metal heavyweights End-Time Illusion who are currently in the studio finishing up their forthcoming album tentatively titled "Deities at War.” Look for a late 2013/early 2014 release!
"The history and craftsmanship behind these drums are absolutely amazing! My Alloy & Solid Shell Maple Classic are hands down the best snare drums I've ever owned and played!"
Yanni's N&C snares:
14"x7" SS Classic Maple - Blackwash Burst with Black Chrome Hardware
14"x6" Alloy Classic - Black with Black Chrome Hardware
