It´s a great honor, and even greater pleasure for me to get a batch of his famous roo skins.
...my FaceBook post...
"I´m delighted to announce an extremely promising collaboration of two wee drum making companies: Hedwitschak Drums, Bavaria and Kentville Drums in Australia !
Steele Turkington, an australian legend in drum repair, drum making and I´d say first of all roo skin making, has agreed to supply me a batch of his excellent kangaroo skins. They will be shortly available for ChangeHED skin holding system.
I think it´s a fantastic thing in a fantastic world to be able doing such a collaboration of two craftsman living of the other side of the planet. Globalization and internet is not always too bad ;) so I´m extremely looking forward getting my hands on these legendary skins and do some work with them.
The philosophy behind Steele´s work seems to me quite similar to my own, and the care and respect he pays to his local resource, the roo skin, is just 'my cup of tea' :)
Special thanks to Luke Robinson and Kyle Meldgaard for making that contact and helping with that project !!
And another special THANK YOU to all customers who support our wee companies and ChangeHED skin holding system ! You´r part of the development !!! :)
... so excited ;)"
If you are interested in this project / in these skins please feel free to send me an email with your pre-order / enquiry.
Bavaria meets Australia !
...great fun :)
