"Yamaha kits are always so reliable. When I’m playing at festivals, on TV, or in the studio… if there’s a yami there I know I will be fine"
Dave Jenkins Jr has been drumming for as long as he can remember. Growing up with a talented drummer dad, in a household full of drums, it was inevitable that he would jump behind the kit himself.
Jenkins Jr started his first band at the age of 8 playing Beatles and Nirvana songs, and went on to form Sydney indie bands The Inheritors and Young Romantics.
More recently, Dave has hit the skins and toured with accomplished artists Andy Bull, Bertie Blackman, Carly Rae Jepsen, Kirin J Callinan and X-factor winners Reece Mastin, Samantha Jade and Dami Im.
Dave Jenkins Jr’s relaxed yet energetic style has gone on to earn him a worthy reputation as one of Australia’s most sought after session musicians.
Absolute Hybrid Maple
The answer to the question is drums that give you the sound you need, whenever you need it.Tonal requirements vary among drummers, differ with dynamics, and change, from band to band, song to song, moment to moment. With the Absolute Hybrid Series drums, Yamaha has succeeded in addressing this, with a drum set that possesses an extraordinary degree of expressive power, allowing drummers to pursue a level of expression that perhaps they've not experience before in their other drums. These drums offer a wide dynamic range that allows them to respond accurately to each and every stroke, and follow changes in dynamics, nuance, and touch, letting you play what you want to play.Other Colours Available
