It is always very special to me to see one of the many images I have seen, and the most recent of the 1.5 Steel–6.5 x 14 behind Artimus Pyle’s kit live. He has been using it exclusively with the Artimus Pyle Band for quite some time now, and he absolutely and completely loves the drum. He has mentioned to Monte Yoho (The Outlaws, Blackhawk) that it quite simply is the best snare drum he has ever used. Link below to a short solo with it, and a live clip with the band. I met Artimus at a show with The Outlaws, and Monte went out of his way for me like he always has to introduce me to him. Monte also uses the 1.5 Steel–6.5 x 14 live exclusively, and a 1.5 Steel–5.5 x 14 as an auxiliary. Not only Monte…But the entire band in The Outlaws & Blackhawk are crazy about the sound of that drum!
In both pictures as well is the guitar player for the Artimus Pyle Band-Jerry Lyda. Jerry is also the owner of Music City Asheville, and is an Authorized Dealer for Beier Drums. He currently has in stock a 1.5 Steel–5.5 x 15 in Gloss White. This is a color that I will not be doing a lot of in that size, and is one of the few that I have done in Gloss White. Any size can also be ordered through Music City Asheville as well.
Thank You Artimus, Monte, and Jerry….
