I visited Patrick’s website and watched his videos (very relaxing and informative). Coincidentally, my daughter planned a trip to Portland so I took the opportunity to call Patrick and order a drum. I found Patrick to be just as heart warming on the phone as he is in his videos, fantastic vibes! My daughter brought my drum home (Arizona) and wow, the drum was beyond what I expected in quality and sound. I hope to make it to Portland one day so I can personally thank this wonderful man for the loving energy and respect he puts into his drums. Thank you Patrick!
