Scott Wespi, CTO of Nashville's Darkstar Design, walks us through the process of how his team helped Pearl Drums execute their vision and freed their Marketing department.

The new Pearl Drums website uses MODX Revolution (Revo) to serve thousands of visitors every day. When Pearl first approached Darkstar Design to overhaul their website, back in 2007, we were unable to use MODX Evolution due to some limitations with permission and scaling capabilities.
