Yamaha Drums signed Carrington Brown, the Metro D.C.-based studio and live drummer for GRAMMY-winning artist, H.E.R. On top of traveling around the world with H.E.R. for sold-out shows, festivals and television performances, Carrington has toured with artists such as Jordan Knight of NKOTB, K. Michelle and Sebastian Mikael. Additionally, he has quickly carved out his path as a production manager, musical director, producer and session player for major R&B and hip-hop recording artists such as Teyana Taylor, Dej Loaf, Justine Skye and many more.

Carrington’s kit of choice is the Yamaha Absolute Hybrid Maple, which offers the playability of rich and clear tones across a full dynamic range, aesthetics and its ability to withstand the rigorous demands of touring. To enhance his live performance, he will be playing the Yamaha DTX-MULTI 12 electronic percussion pad and DTX XP-80 electronic drum pads as well as using the HEXRACKII, for his hardware.

“The consistency and quality of Yamaha acoustic drums and electronic percussion allow me to perform at the highest level,” said Brown. “With my busy tour schedule, having a durable and reliable drum set and hardware is crucial; I couldn’t be happier to be a part of this team.”
