Hinder Puts Reference Series To The Test

Hinder recently announced they'll be a part of Mötley Crüe's Saints of Los Angeles 2009 Winter Tour kicking off February 2nd in San Diego, CA with 29 shows throughout North America, including a date at Madison Square Garden, with the final performance on March 18th in Portland, ME. Tickets go on sale beginning November 21st at

Cody Hanson will continue using his custom painted Reference Series kit and it can be seen on the remaining dates of the Jägermeister Music Tour.  Painted by master painter (and fellow Pearl Artist) Johnny Douglas, it is a one-of-a-kind kit that has gained much attention from thousands of fans. "Since I got my Pearl Reference Series kit, I couldn't be happier. it gives me confidence to know that I can go up on stage every night and my drums will sound amazing. It's nice to be able to focus on my playing at not have to worry about something falling apart. When other techs and drummers ask us how we get our drums to sound so great, I just point to the Pearl logo." 

Jumping from one tour to another can wear down gear but that wasn't a worry for longtime Hinder drum tech Michael "Bibs" Biby. "The day Cody started talking to Pearl, I was excited. I know I can trust Pearl gear, and the guys 
I deal with, to make sure we are taken care of. I think that is very important, especially on a touring kit because a lot of things can happen out on the road....
I have not had a single problem with the drums or hardware. They look great and sound amazing."

Hinder's latest album "Take It To The Limit" is officially out and available in stores everywhere!
