My parents tell me when I was 3 I would bang on pots and pans and I had the ability to keep a beat. For my 7th birthday I received a First Act drum set. At 8, I started learning drum rudiments and taking lessons. My first gig was playing at a Christian summer camp for a week when I was 9. Ever since then, I knew I had an extreme passion for drumming. Early in 2016 at the age of 16, I placed 2nd Runner Up in the international ‘Hit Like A Girl’ Drumming Contest. This was a turning point that gave me a lot of exposure and many opportunities. From 2017-2019 I attended William Jessup University, majoring in music with an emphasis in drums. I was the lead drummer for the 100 plus member University Choir and Orchestra, which included touring three times a year. In 2018 I had the privilege to record drums on two albums the Choir and Orchestra recorded at Skywalker Ranch. From 2016-2019 I toured California and Nevada with a country band, The Madison Hudson Band. I was the drummer, and sang harmony. Playing with The Madison Hudson Band has allowed me many great opportunities. Our biggest honors as a band was performing at a Brad Paisley After Party and opening for Chris Lane and Maggie Rose, both of whom have hits on Country Radio and also performing at the Iowa State Fair. In the summer of 2019 I decided I wanted to leave my comfortable life in Northern California and move to Los Angeles to continue my bachelor of music degree in drums at the Musicians Institute. Since moving to LA I have begun working with all different types of bands ranging from Country to R&B. One of the bands I am proud of is “pretty havoc” where I play drums and occasionally sing. The music is a mix of poppy modern alternative/punk. I love being a female drummer, as we are pretty rare. My passion is to show that girls can drum and it is not just a “guy thing.” Ultimately I want to inspire not only females, but everyone, to work hard and follow their dreams. Happiest when behind my drum set, I want my life to forever be filled with music and to be a part of the music industry. Thank you JR Robinson for introducing me to Kelly Paiste, and thank you Kelly for believing in me from such a young age. https://www.tiktok.com/@mollyrosedrums?lang=en
Sound character: Dark, dry, woody. Fairly wide range, complex mix. Soft, responsive feel. Full, warm, open sound. Loose, soggy chick sound. Perfectly suited for traditional swing patterns, but also well usable for other acoustic styles like Blues, Country, Soul or Gospel.
Sizes: 16", 17", 18", 19", 20"
Sound character: Dark, warm, smoky. Medium wide range, complex mix. Buttery, soft feel with quick response. Rich, dark, mystical crash sound with tender clarity. Extremely lively cymbal for broad accents and crashes in intimate to semi-loud settings. Well suited for delicate ride patterns or mallet swells. «For those guys who really appreciate just having a cymbal that can do everything, the larger Dark Crashes can do anything. Very crash-able, and if you want to ride on them, they will give you all the ride patterns in the world.» - Gregory Hutchinson
