Name: Roger "Mini" Landin
Roger has played with a bunch of different bands over the years. Most of them been in the hardrock/metal génre. He was one of the founding members of Alyson Avenue and Cloudscape.
At the moment he’s in the middle of recording the debut album with his band Hellsmoke. Stay tuned !
Roger says: “I got in touch with 101 Drums through our manager Ken Anthony. They asked if Ken knew a drummer interested in trying out a new, groundbreaking snare. Of course I felt honored and didn’t hesitate.”
“I’ve got the opportunity to try out a couple of different snares from 101, and I got hooked right away. The punch and volume of them are mindblowing. Depending on how you tune them, they can give the warmth of wood or the high pitched “smack” of a metal one, and of course something in between.
My brothers in Hellsmoke had to pick their jaws up from the floor the first time I tried the snare at rehearsals.
I used one of the 101-snares in the studio and the thing beside the awesome sound was, how little time I had to spend on retuning it.”
“All in all, a freaking beast of a snare with great hardware!”
I was offered to paint my own shell, and the collaboration with 101 Drums turned out really nice, so here you see my 101 Drums 14 x 6" Custom snare
I’m a proud member of the 101-family !
