Adam Marszałkowski and Coma LIVE

MEINL Drum Festival 2016 was an extremely successful event, not only for the company but also for Adam Marszałkowski – the man behind the drum kit for Coma, who are one of the most popular rock outfits on the Polish scene today. His performance at MDF 2016, together with his fellow Tama and MEINL endorsers Tomek Torres and Dariusz “Daray” Brzozowski, widely resonated amongst the drumming community in Poland and turned out to be a true showstopper during the festival. By that time, the changes in Adam’s playing and his approach to building his kit had already been more than visible. It was obviously time to arrange a meeting with the man in connection with his band’s concert tour in support of their latest album titled “2005 YU55“.

The encouter did eventually take place on December 8, 2016, at Hall 2 of the International Fairgrounds in Poznań, Poland. It was there that we recorded Coma’s entire two-hour performance, the first snippet of which you are about to see.
