Bryson Nelson of Nelson Drum Co. admires the drummers of history such as James Gadson and other legendary artists of a bygone era. He identifies with these historic drummers and the drum sets they played. This is why he is attracted to vintage gear and has developed the habit of buying and selling them.
Bryson was a touring drummer for quite a long time before Nelson Drum Co. came into existence. It was on his drive up to Nashville from California that he decided to start a drum company and had his friend draw the logo straight away. Bryson was just buying and selling vintage gear from his home and inviting drummers to be filmed and recorded in “guest features” for his social media.
It hasn’t been two years and Bryson is stepping into retail and growing at an incredible pace. Between the striking visual aesthetics, fantastic selection of drum equipment, the superb videos and Bryson’s good hearted nature, it is no wonder how he has grown so rapidly.
It was really nice to have Bryson on the show. It was a lighthearted conversation between a couple of drum dorks discussing our love for gear and the drumming world as a whole. Make sure to check in October 4th for his grand opening with Andy Foote Drum Supply. Best of luck to you buddy!
Also, huge shoutout to my dudes Ian Maciak and Chris Freeman for their contributions for DrumGAB’s brand new theme music. Thanks fellas you guys rock! I am very fortunate to have such talented friends. In addition to the great music I also had the incredible talent of Tom Knight to do the VO work that is now included in my show. Thank you so much brother!
