Pearl Drums

Joe has been playing Pearl Drums since the age of 13. He has always been impressed with their sound, the quality of the drums, their hardware, and most of all their constant evolution and innovation of the drums. It was in 2005 that, Leslie Butts, approached Joe about becoming a Pearl artist. This was a true honor for him since he has been playing Pearl his whole life and truly believed in the product and their passion for the drums! Joe is proud to be a part of the Pearl family and truly believes that “Pearl is the best reason to play Drums!”
