Jaymz Hughes’ Hybrid Kit

Jaymz Hughes' Hybrid Kit

By Radim McCue Published September 23, 2009

Jaymz Hughes is a 37-year old Canadian drummer who anchors a modern-rock alternative cover band in Windsor, Ontario. Their name: Sellout (Hey James, don't be so hard on yourself!).

Jaymz wrote and asked us to make his kit famous and we're happy to oblige. It's a hybrid kit he put together on a budget, but according to Jaymz, "It sounds great, and gets the job done." Well done, Jaymz.
