My brother , Darrell Cadieux (above) who is an accomplished jazz drummer and art collector should be floored by this piece I had made for him by a world class glass blower. The heads are hand blown glass in the artist's famous tortoise shell design. An LED light was mounted inside and gives the piece a beautiful radiance. The piece was made by Jeff Burnette of Vancouver B.C. Jeff thought so much of the piece he posted it on his facebook page. I had this piece commissioned for my brother as a Christmas present for this year. I have sent along a few pictures of the drum. Your publication has some history with my brother. A few years back a couple of his vintage,very rare snare drums , graced the cover of your magazine - Spring/Summer 2001. This snare may not be playable but there is not another one like it. In my initial talks with Jeff I had wanted the 14 inch shell hand blown in an early 70's Ludwig psychedelic pattern.(growing up my brother had the 70's marine pearl Ludwigs. Jeff told me that was doable but at a huge cost, we opted for this project. I think it looks fabulous.
I look forward to seeing this posted on your site,that will be really cool
Thanks, David Cadieux
