Have you ever wanted to sit and have coffee with one of your fav drummers? Well, we made that possible for all of you in episode 018! We sat with Simon “Kobes” Kobler armed with over 82 questions from the Worship Drummer Family as well as some of our own! We drank great coffee, had a great convo and I even got a hands-on with his impressive new line of products for drummers.

Basal – The Sophisticated + Modern Answer To Product Organization

We had a hand-on experience with many of Simon’s products and I was so impressed with the quality and attention to detail. The simplest way I can put it is that if you enjoy his playing, you’ll love his products! They are simple and basic but meet a huge need in organizing all of your drumming accessories. Here are some pics that I took, and then some “proper” ones.
