Gaetano Fasano Independent



I use Premier because it's the only brand that is focused on sound and manufacture quality. Their drums are versatile and very responsive to the dynamics, which allows you to play from jazz/blues to rock or even more aggressive music styles!


The passion for musical research with no compromises - this is Gaetano Fasano.

Gaetano is very passionate about drums history and he won the prestigious prize “Aosta Classica”during the PercFest in 2001. During his long career he played different musical styles, from Jazz to Prog Rock, from Blues to Latin Music.

Moreover he’s a famous teacher all over Italy and teaches drum in the most famous schools of the country, such as “Università della musica” in Rome.

He developed an innovative teaching method called “La Padderia”, which is a special combination of cymbals and pads that allow teacher and student to play the same kit very close to each other, like playing in front of a mirror.

Gaetano is endorser for Premier Drums, Meinls Cymbals, Dixon Hardware and Facus Drumsticks.

He’s also constantly touring as clinician for the above mentioned brands.
