Mapex Drums’ Drummer of Tomorrow Contest US Final Round

Mapex Drums’ Drummer of Tomorrow contest is gearing up for the United States Final round, being held at the NAMM Show in Anaheim, California, this coming January 19. The performance is scheduled to begin at 8 p.m. at the Anaheim Hilton in California, Pavilion C & D. Doors open at 7:30 p.m., and unlike most NAMM Show events that require a pass, the event is open to the public.

The four Drummer of Tomorrow finalists set to perform are Joe Maddox of Indianapolis, Indiana; Stephen Mixson of Detroit, Michigan; Michael Davila of Kerrville, Texas; and Rick Trice of Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina.

The finalists will be performing with the all-star band Sinverguenzamusic, which features musicians who have played with artists including Michael Jackson, Chaka Khan, Phil Collins, and Madonna. The group is led by Mapex artist Walfredo Reye Jr.

The winner of this round will travel to Frankfurt, Germany, to compete against twelve other countries for the World Title in April. All winners of the Drummer of Tomorrow contest will be entered to receive over $50,000 in prizes and drum gear, including drumsets from Mapex, cymbals from Zildjian, drumheads from Remo, sticks from Vic Firth, and songbooks from Alfred Music Publishing. In addition, the top winner will win an artist endorsement contract from Mapex Drums and will appear on the company’s official Artist Roster.

The ‘Supernova Custom Drums Snare World Tour’ aims to give their Facebook Friends a chance to try out one of their custom made snare drums in their own homes/practice spaces/gigs, so they are sending one out to complete a very special world tour.

Each person will have 7 days to play the snare before it gets sent on to another drummer. The Snare World Tour will all be coordinated on facebook.com/supernovacustomdrumssnareworldtour, with a map of where the snare drum has traveled to on their website at Supernovadrums.com. All of the rules and the terms and conditions can be seen on both their main website and on the Snare World Tour Facebook page.

Once 1,000 people have joined the Snare World Tour Facebook page, the snare will be let loose! The promotion is live now.

Nice idea and fantastic opportunity to have a new snare in your home ;)
