Royal blood at adoro: we welcome Ben Thatcher at the adoro family!
(Martin Smith, Royal Blood)
New blood at adoro: we welcome Ben Thatcher at the adoro family! He is touring with an Adoro City Lights Set, Maple, with 20x17" BD, 12x7" TT, 14x12 + 16x12" FT. Colour is the new champagne sparkle laquer finish. Benji lives in Brighton, GB, and plays drums for Martin Smith and with his own uprising band "Royal Blood".
The Drums: The City Lights kit in champagne sparkle is one of our first sets with this new sparkle laquer finish. Slightly darker than our usual broken glass finish, it has a classy look. Also the construction of the bass drum was altered to give it more punch, yet still to sound well rounded and slightly less aggressive than it used to be. If you liked the old sound, you will love this one!
These new features are availlable with all maple city lights sets.
"I own a Custom City Lights kit. Each time I play it I get people commenting on how good the sound of the kit is, everyone from recording engineers, live sound engineers, session players and general public. The kit itself looks spectacular, It's a slightly darker broken glass sparkle finish. These kits can also take a bashing, I often find myself standing on the top of them, sometimes having a little wrestle.
I'm honoured to drum with Adoro. I would recommend them to every drummer that like's a good sounding kit and for a very reasonable price." Ben Thatcher
