Promark by D’Addario welcomes drummer, educator, clinician, and author Claus Hessler to its family of percussion artists. Hessler is known for his open-handed approach to drum set playing. Of Hessler, legendary drum educator Jim Chapin, author of Advanced Techniques for the Modern Drummer, once said, “I hardly know anyone who is closer to the real Moeller than Claus.”
Besides his current Hammond organ trio Flux, Hessler has performed in the studio and shared the stage with Steve Smith, Alex Acuña, Walfredo Reyes Jr., JoJo Mayer, David Garibaldi, Johnny Rabb, and Luis Conte. In addition to his longstanding reputation for performance, Hessler’s educational books and DVD releases have received worldwide recognition. Hessler is also chairman of Percussion Creativ, a German-speaking community for drummers and percussionists in Europe.
Commenting on his partnership with Promark, Hessler says, “Amazing range of products. Different avenues of sound. First class quality and craftsmanship. Dedication to music education and preserving wood resources. Finding all of this combined makes Promark my favorite choice!”
