Phoenix Drum Company
Nov 2016

The Phoenix Drum Company was founded in 2011 by Philip Gelb, a drummer who wanted an instrument designed for better sound combined with outstanding aesthetic design. Philip also wanted to have the option to add upgrades to the instrument above the basic model, just as one would do for a luxury vehicle. Philip created the company to offer drummers greater artistic expression and product personalization because Philip believes that “A drum set is the body where the soul of the drummer resides and it deserves a luxury estate, not a fixer upper.

You will first meet Marty Naul, the professional musician. Then you will get to know Marty as a friend; a most affable and humorous man. When the band Chameleon hired him as our drummer, as a bass guitarist, I knew immediately the rhythm section of our band was in good hands, but the rest of the band soon discovered what else we had found, as Marty took the lead in structuring disciplined rehearsals in our approach to presenting our original music. Marty is the exception to the rule "Those who can, do. Those who can't, teach". Marty is the best drummer I have ever played with, and his musical education gives him the tools to teach at all levels, from beginner to advanced drumming. But Marty will also bring more to the drum lessons, the attribute of what I have already alluded to; the skill of relating to and cooperating with fellow musicians and band mates. Congratulations for bringing Marty into your world!
