Alejandro Castaño

"The best part about WTS drums is that they sound great at any tuning! The drums are so versatile, one kit is all you need. I love how the shells sound at any pitch!"

He performs throughout the United States and abroad, including jazz venues and music festivals in Costa Rica, Columbia South America, Amsterdam, the U.K., New York, and more.
