ABOUT SJC CUSTOM DRUMS
“In the last two years (2013 – 2014) SJC was able to sign Branden Steineckert (Rancid), Cyrus Bolooki (New Found Glory), Zach Lind (Jimmy Eat World) and most recently, Tré Cool of Green Day. Keep in mind, these are world-renown drummers dedicated to the huge companies that endorsed them.
Switching to a custom company is like jumping from a major label to an indie, but if there’s something special waiting on the other side, a switch is inevitable. Fortunately, Mike realized that being a people person is just as important as a good sounding drum. He would go on tour around the world drum teching for bands, continuing to network as well as doing research on what makes the best product. Mike Fasano, a friend to the company, is one of the world’s best drum techs and showed Tré one of SJC’s snares while he was recording the newest Green Day album. Tré loved it and began using more and more of their drums. Finally Mike made him a custom kit.
Billy Joe Armstrong became a fan and got a kit for his son in the band Emily’s Army. SJC decided to go for it and ended up making a Dookie 20th Anniversary snare. After some talks it was official that Tré was not only endorsing SJC, but becoming a product ambassador and personally reaching out to other drummers. His custom kit was the highlight of SJC’s NAMM showcase in 2014.” – www.sjcdrums.com
