Pretty cool

Wow!

Meinl artist Riku Taira is just 18yrs young and one of Japan's best-known up and coming drummers. He just graduated from high-school and is now working on his professional drumming career. Check out his drumming (great solo starting at after 30sec) in this video as well as the others (links below) where he performs with two different bands. 

I thank him for supporting Meinl cymbals in Japan, and wish him all the very best for his career.

The cymbals he uses are (from left to right): 

          Byzance Dark Hihat 14”
          Byzance Traditional Extra Thin Hammered Crashes 20”
          Byzance Vintage Crash 18”
