But Kai also played with more Blues/Rock and Dixieland/Street Jazz music styled bands. Since Kai wanted to expand his technical abilities even more, he moved to New York for one Summer in 2002. His teachers were: Freddy Gruber, Joe Morello, Jim Chapin and John Riley and gave him a completely new direction in technique and drum set control. In 2004, Kai marked a new chapter in his life by co-founding Wintersun. And in 2009, he also became part of Swallow the Sun, having him record two studio albums with them and playing hundreds of shows around the world. In between touring, he has also been very active in the studio as a drum tech/tuning guy for bands like Nightwish, Children Of Bodom, Ensiferum… just to name a few… This leads us to 2014 when he was asked by Nightwish to play on their new album “Endless Forms Most Beautiful” and join on their upcoming worldwide tour… and he has been with Nightiwsh as official band member ever since.

Introduced in 2017, Pearl’s Sonic Select Shell Recipes gave a performance-formula focus to the boutique-level Masterworks series.

Available in a pre-selected offering of hand-lacquered and wrapped finishes, each will feature a vault-cured EvenPly-Six layered premium North American Maple and Gum wood shell with 60-degree edges, Mastercast Die-Cast hoops, and Pearl’s CL bridge lugs. “Make no mistake about it, Masters Maple/Gum is a Masterworks drum set,” states Pearl R&D Director Raymond Massey. “The only thing missing is the level of finish and hardware customization that comes with the Masterworks program. We’ve spent the last year sound-testing these drums to assure that the right combination of shell woods, hoops, and lugs was in the mix for an elite playing experience; and we couldn’t be prouder of the results!” Available in Hand-Rubbed Satin Natural Maple (#189) Black Diamond Pearl (#421,) Matte White Marine (#422,) and Platinum Gold Oyster (#453,) Masters Maple Gum will be offered in two shell packs with a limited selection of component add-on drums. • Masters Maple/Gum 22”x16”/10”x07”/12”x08”/16”x16” Shell Pack (MMG924XSP/C) Suggested Selling Price: 2999,- EURO • Masters Maple/Gum 22”x16”/12”x08”/16”x16” Shell Pack (MMG924XSP/C) Suggested Selling Price: 2599,- EURO
