Alden is formally endorsed by Ford Drums and Vintage Logos, but would also like to direct your attention to a few other companies as well which he proudly uses and promotes.
If you are not familiar with Ford Drums, please take a moment to acquaint yourself with what I believe are the finest drums being offered today bar none. The attention to detail these folks put into every aspect of building a quality drum is just phenomenal. I can proudly say I own four sets of Ford drums and each set is distinctive in its presentation, and is just a joy to play. Have you driven a band lately?
I began my association with Shawn McNamara and Vintage Logos over eighteen years ago. If you're a drummer looking to personalize your set with some awesome bass drum artwork, or a band leader looking to spruce up your band's logo, I definitely suggest you contact Shawn and see how they can help you.
I became a convert to Roy Burns' Aquarian Heads over 20 years ago. In over 40 years of playing the drums, I have probably played every head marketed. No other company has had a product with the musicality, durability, and consistency as Aquarian Heads. As particular as I am about heads, I truly believe Aquarian really has the best selection of heads out today to fulfill any drummer's musical demands.
Over a lifetime of playing drums, Zildjian Cymbals have been my one constant choice. With so many different product lines to choose from, their cymbals offer a huge palette of musical colors to compliment a wide range of styles. There are many choices of cymbals available for drummers today, but Zildjian's have the distinctiveness I keep going back to for my sound.
I have been fortunate enough in this endeavor to be able to take advantage of the artistic talents of Julie Eisenhower. She not only made the actual photo shoot a very easy and relaxed experience, but she also produced a collection of great shots to choose from. Please visit her site and consider her for your photography needs.
