Pearl Artists Honored at the Drummies!

Each year, DRUM! Magazine holds an online poll, giving readers the chance to nominate and honor their favorite drummers for the contributions they’ve made to the drumming community throughout the past year. This year, DRUM! Magazine’s 17th Annual Readers Poll included several Pearl artists in their nominations, acknowledging their tremendous talent and musical prowess. In both Drumset and Percussion categories, 9 Pearl artists were represented for their respective genre, placing them atop a long and very deserving list of the world’s finest musicians. The list of nominated drummers can be found below.

On behalf of Pearl Corporation, we are ecstatic to congratulate the following drummers, and to express our gratitude, pride, and appreciation for their never ending support.

Congrats guys!
