"My playing has always spanned a great diversity of musical languages.  As far as equipment is concerned, the challenge for me is to find a product that can meet both my expectations as a player and the demands of whatever situation I might find myself in. Whether it be acoustic jazz, improvisation, avant-punk, experimental, electronic, pop, rock, orchestral, or a soundtrack session, Remo always provides the tone, clarity, adaptability and durability for me to express myself, and deliver what’s needed for the music."  -Laurence Pike
