Date For Meinl Drum Festival 2010

even though the temperature has noticably dropped, it's still beautiful outside. blue sky everywhere

welcome back and i hope you have had great summertime so far. here at meinl everything is going great. we were closed for summer holidays and everything is back on track again. we are now fully involved with the development of all the news for next year, preparations for new catalogs, and million of other marketing ideas and projects for later this year. some exciting things coming up :-)

one of next year's drumming highlights will certainly be our drum festival which is going to take place here on our premises in gutenstetten, germany again. yesterday we have decided about the dates.


don't ask me about the line-up. there are no news yet. however, i am going to start working on that now and if anybody has a suggestion as far as who from our roster we should present at our drum festival next year, please feel free to let me know.

i am going to be attending the drumworld festival in holland on sunday, and will be at key music in belgium to attend a dirk verbeuren (soilwork) workshop there on monday. make sure to follow me on twitter (meinlcymbals) and facebook (norbert saemann) where i will make live-updates from those events. it would be nice to meet some of you in person there.

Da Ihr 3 der atemberaubensten Drummer unserer Zeit in eurem artist-roster habt, sollten die auch kommen:

Gergo Borlai
Chris Coleman
Benny Greb

Vielleicht kann Thomas ja dieses Jahr die Bratwürstchen verkaufen.....

Hello! I come from China! I need your help!

How much is your mailbox?
I give you E-mail details

das auf dem Artisprofil angezeigten Cymbalset up von John Boecklin, ist aber nicht mehr aktuell, oder?
Habe die Jungs live gesehen (oberhammer) und sein Beckensetup war komplett anders.
Mich würde aber interessieren welche Becken er aktuell spielt. Der Drumsound (inkl. Cybmals) war nämlich megageil!!
Wäre auch hammer wenn Ihr John mal für eine Workshop - Tour oder fürs MDF 2010 nach Deutschland bekommt. Der Typ is nähmlich absoute Oberklasse, wenn es um Metaldrumming geht!

holt den Simon Gattringer ;-)

Liebe Grüße

Hallo Herr Saemann,

Ihr könntet vielleicht ein Wettbewerb organisieren, wo einige Drummer am Samstagnachmittag was vorspielen könnten. Der Gewinner sollte dann mit JOST NICKEL am Sonntag ein Duett spielen dürfen. Das wäre mal richtig geil. Ich hoffe, das bei euch auch der wirklich der Beste gewinnt.

ganz liebe Grüße und viel Spaß bei der Vorbereitung. (JOST sollte auf jeden Fall dabei sein.)

2.Jost Nickel!

Hauke posted on Feb 03, 2010 - 20:10 PM

Ich würde sagen, Benny Greb muss auf jeden Fall dabei sein.
