WASP Hits the Road

Pearl artist, Mike Dupke, teams up once again with WASP for a month long tour around the US. Coming off a lengthy 3 month long European Tour at the end of 2009, Mike and WASP return back to the States for a highly anticipated US Tour in support of their latest studio album, “Babylon” which was released in September of 2009. This will be WASP’s first run around the States since the release of the new album and also their first US tour in the last 2 years. Mike Dupke will be out slamming his Pearl Reference kit which is finished in a custom “Blood Drip” wrap for this run. Mike prefers the wood combination in the Reference Series shells to get the perfect tone and resonance out of each drum, as well as being able to achieve a tonally perfect transition from high toms to floor toms.
