David Raouf is a drummer and YouTube content creator based out of Richmond, Virginia. His YouTube channel explores the possibilities of modifying all styles of drum gear to create new equipment for your drum set. Whether its an old busted up snare drumhead, a broken hi-hat stand, or a brand-new shiny cymbal, David finds a way to repurpose it into something new to inspire creativity behind the kit.
Most memorable Next-Level PerformanceThe moment after I played my first live show I got a that extra boost of motivation and confidence in my playing.

Why do you choose Vic Firth?From day 1 my teacher told me to get a pair of Vic Firths. Shortly after, I realized why he recommended them. Vic has always had the tools I've needed throughout my drumming career. From educational content, any implement for any instrument, as well as useful accessories, they had me covered. As someone who plays a lot of different gear, the sticks have never changed.
