Jonathan Barber joins D’Addario Company

I am happy to announce that I’m apart of the D’Addario Company. I will be endorsing Pro-Mark drumsticks, Evans Drumheads, PureSound Percussion and Percussion Accessories. Special thanks to Marco Soccoli (D’Addario A&R) on giving me this opportunity to partner with D’Addario Company and stretch my brand. Like I’ve said in the past, “It’s always a good situation when you join/partner with a company that upholds the same respect for you as you do for them.”

“D’Addario products are top of the line. Promark drumsticks has a wide variety in comfortability, durability and sensibility on getting many textures out of the drums and cymbals.
The Evans drumheads upholds an even tone. With these drums heads you don’t have to break them in. They’re ready to go fresh out the box.”

Jonathan Barber Endorses Canopus Drums

When it’s your time, things will happen. For many years I wonder when is it going to be my turn not realizing that the process had to take its full course. As artists we want things to happen within the snap of our fingers but to achieve your goals it takes time and work. Now I feel blessed to announce that I endorse CANOPUS DRUMS. Not only do I admire their level of craftsmanship they put into this instrument, I know this is a good situation when you join/partner with a company who upholds the same respect for you as you do for them. I’m so excited for the future and I can’t wait dive deeper musically with Canopus Drums. I want to give a special thanks to Taxi (Canopus Artist Relations) for putting the pieces together.
Stay Tuned… Videos are coming soon.

These drums are built with quality and posses the ability to enhance a drummer’s musical voice.
