SJC Drums CEO, Mike Ciprari will be joining New Found Glory as they hit the road in support of their latest record, Kill It Live. Ciprari is taking on the role of drum tech for New Found Glory’s Cyrus Bolooki. The SJC crew has been bringing Bolooki’s dream kits to life for the past year and has just finished a new piece to add to the collection.

"This is the 4th kit we've made for Cyrus. His last kit was a really over the top hybrid kit, so we wanted to make this more of a classic looking kit for the Alkaline Trio tour, something he could use for a few tours, so we decided on a white kit. We can't just do any white kit, so we wanted to make it really pop, so we searched a bunch of Cadillac paints, and found a really nice pearlescent white that shimmers reflective gold. Super classy kit and sounds amazing, and I can't wait to set it up for Cyrus every night!" — Mike Ciprari

The Tour kicks off Wednesday, October 23rd in San Francisco and wraps up November 25th in Arizona. Mike and Cyrus plan to run daily contests through social media for chances to win access to sound check and exclusive gear from Zildjian, Remo, Rockstar Energy, Vater drumsticks and SJC Drums. Keep an eye on @SJCdrums twitter account for your chance to win.
