Band: Switchfoot

"Sounds inspire performance…Aquarian heads make my drums sound huge! They are easy to tune and more durable than any others…which really matters when you have to decided between another drum head or a burrito."


Chad was Born on a boat in a canal in Amsterdam, grew up surfing in San Diego. He started a band with high school buddies called Switchfoot and toured the world for the last 14 years.
