Nick Gaffaney - Signature Artist
"The attention to detail, the commitment to the player, and the ease of communication with the stick makers are what sets Scorpion Percussion apart. They're building a new paradigm for the stick industry; making it more egalitarian, with more options open to the hard-working players out there without big names.... And I'm here for it!"
