The "one drop" is a classic roots drum beat. It is the exact opposite of a standard "western" drum beat. It's technically simple to play, but playing it well requires great feel and soul. In this, One Drop found the basis of their business. Just like the "one drop" puts it's accent in a completely unexpected place, they too, do things differently than expected. While their products are technically very sound, the most important thing you'll notice is the way they feel; you'll know that they are crafted by people who have put their heart and soul into them. You're supporting craftsmen who design and build locally in the USA. None of One Drop's products, tools, supplies, or equipment are purchased overseas.
