  • Mapex Drums Announces Eleven City Drum Clinic Tour with Lamb of God's Chris Adler

    By Guest |

    Mapex Drums is pleased to announce the upcoming Chris Adler clinic tour, "A

    Throne with a View" which will take him through the country this winter,

    beginning February 28th and ending on March 16th, 2011. Adler appeared at

    the prestigious Modern Drummer Festival in 2005 and performed a "Battle"

    clinic tour with his brother Willie Adler across Europe in 2008. "A Throne

    with a View" will be his first and only U.S. clinic tour in 2011.


    Adler's limited appearances are different from many drum clinics. "My goal

    is to share my experiences on and off my drum kit through interaction with

    those in attendance. Of course, I will be playing and giving tips, but I

    will be far more focused on the story that got me where I am than the notion

    of impressing anyone," says Chris. He adds, "I've found that most fans and

    young players want to know how I got to where I am, not the tech specs."


    On this tour, Adler will be playing on the all-new Black Panther "Blaster"

    drum kit. Mapex introduced the Black Panther Drum Collection in January at

    the NAMM show in Anaheim, CA and this will be the first opportunity for many

    fans to see and hear it. The Blaster kit features a unique maple and walnut

    shell design and is the first in a series of new drum sets based on Mapex

    Drums' popular series of Black Panther Snare Drums.
