Shure Drum Mastery 2012 Winner Announced
Our search for Europe’s top drummer (not currently earning a living from drumming!) started late last year, and after over 1 million web hits, several thousand playalong downloads & hundreds of entries we are proud to announce this years winner as Antonio De Marianis of Italy.
For those of you who are hearing about this for the first time, entrants had to submit a video of themselves playing to a playalong we created which involved drumming various different styles including jazz, rock and drum and bass. The 5 finalists were selected from a panel of judges and all got a trip to Iceland for a one day masterclass with Darren Ashford, followed by a live battle in a nightclub. The eventual winner was decided by a very trusty clapometer!
Here is an excellent video perfectly summarising the entire weekend and the final battle.
…Many congratulations to Antonio, who received a 5000 Euro voucher for Shure products
