Stanley Randolph Unveils Custom Drums for Upcoming Tour

This summer, one of Pop’s biggest tours will feature one of the drumming community’s biggest stars, when, Pearl artist, Stanley Randolph teams up with New Kids on the Block for their massive arena trek, titled, “The Package Tour”!  This lengthy summer excursion is scheduled to kick off at the end of this month, on May 28th, at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, CT, and will spend the remaining 2 months traveling throughout North America before coming to a close at the Verizon Wireless Arena, in Manchester, NH, on July 25th.  Skipping from 1 arena to another, New Kids on the Block, alongside 98 Degrees and Boyz II Men, will be making 43 stops throughout their 2 month long tenure, performing at some of the most iconic venues in the North America including the TD Garden in Boston, the Air Canada Center in Toronto, and, of course, the Staples Center in Los Angeles, to bring their explosive and hit heavy set that’s packed with the sing-along songs that we all know and love.
For us drummers though, “The Package Tour” holds an entirely different meaning than intended thanks to, Pearl artist, Stanley Randolph.  From his blistering chops and mind-blowing rudiments, along with the deep pocket and heavy, heavy groove, Stanley is ‘the full package’ behind the drum kit, and it shows in his resume which includes names like Stevie Wonder, Christina Aguilera, NKOTBSB and many many more.  An added bonus to Stanley’s stellar drumming is his new Reference Series kit, which he had customized by our friends over at LA Drum Services (LADS) and is complete with “Demon Drive Orange” powder-coated hardware and beautifully intricate pin-striping, which adds a ‘hot-rod’ effect and ties the full visualization of the kit together.  As you can see below, Stanley’s kit is a true masterpiece both visually and sonically, with the Reference Series drums singing beautifully with each hit, courtesy of the innovative drum shell technology found in the Reference Series line.  Stanley’s specs are as follow:

Reference Series:
Piano Black (103)
w/ Black/Orange hardware

22x18 bass drum
20x18 bass drum
10x8 tom
