Marching to the beat of a different drummer

"EMC Lifestyle - Drumming is more than just a hobby for Jake Desjardine - it's a passion which has spanned nearly 30 years and evolved from typical rock-style drumming into his own version of an eclectic reggae-style of music. For Desjardine, taking the next step into drum building seemed like a natural next step in his musical progression.

Desjardine first began drumming at the early age of nine, using what he laughingly describes as 'an Animal Muppets drum kit' and his interest took off from there. Although in his early years, his interest in drumming was reserved to the typical teenage heavy metal music, he says that as he matured as a musician he became more involved in what he calls 'world rhythms' such as calypso and reggae."
