BERTRAM LEHMANN

 

"Another brief shout-out to DEM' Sticks and mentioning of how lovely African Fans can sound. In a combination with a bare hand, sabar style, this totally unique tool has become a favorite of mine, often in conjunction with a regular stick or brush, for cymbal playing, but this is another great way to utilize its light yet strong sound ... 
Thanks Dave!"
