Episode 16: Nick Jones, Noble & Cooley, Part 2 with Special Offer

Welcome to Drum Showroom Episode 16. It’s the second half of my conversation with Nick Jones of Noble & Cooley, who is the seventh generation of the family and vice president, one of just three people who build Noble & Cooley drums. If you haven’t heard Part 1 yet, it’s easy to find: it’s Episode 15, and I definitely recommend you listen to it first.

This second episode covers Nick’s favorite kit he’s built and the resulting CoolMount he developed; reintroduction and evolution of the Horizon and Solid Shell series kits, acquisition of Witt Percussion and the resulting Walnut snares, the N&C Alloy snare drum, their new branded logo option, a look into their product development process, and some news about a new offering: Walnut drum sets!

Noble & Cooley has generously extended two special offers for listeners of the show. You can use promo code DRUMSHOWROOM to get 50% off all accessories, and promo code DRUMSHOWROOM1 to get 15% off all Web Special drums at noblecooley.com through the end of 2017.

  • New partnership with Sennheiser
