My name is Doug Berglund and I invented the Drummer's Wing Nut Wrench over 30 years ago.
I’ve been playing drums my entire life. Pots & pans at 3 years old, wooden snare by 10. I played in multiple HS school and garage bands during my teens. It was all I did in my twenties; much of what I did in my thirties; and a lot of what I still do today. Although, nowadays I play mostly for the fun of it. My main job these days is teaching HS & college economics. To be sure, it was never my dream to become an economics teacher - and yes, I do love teaching. But I’m a drummer at heart, and I still think about drumming all the time (Although, I have since learned to NOT drive the family nuts at the dinner table by banging out Ginger Baker licks in between bites).
It was also never my dream to sell wrenches. But, I always knew that I wanted to create something positive, and leave it to the world. I always hoped my contribution would be musical, like one of my songs, or a cool drum beat. But as fate would have it, THIS WRENCH has become my contribution to the world (so far), and to drummers everywhere. True, inventing and selling an amazing wrench is a twist of fate I would never have predicted 30 years ago. But here we are. It's a great wrench, and I believe in it, 100%. I use it all the time. Try it, you will, too!
We drummers gotta stick together (necessary, but often overlooked). And yet we still get plenty of grief (playful, no doubt) from club owners and band mates because it takes us so long to set up, and even longer to tear down. Well, this wrench will cut down on both set-up and tear-down times.
And timing is... everything!
So, please know that someone is looking out for you: Crabby Tools. Enjoy the wrench.
Play with confidence.
