Not So Modern Drummer will be at the Chicago Drum Show on May 17 & 18, and we are bringing the Chicago Drum Company custom snare drum that we're raffling at the Nashville Drum Show. Come see us, and the drum, at Booth 81.
The Nashville Drum Show is September 20 & 21. This is our big drum show – 160 exhibit booths and hundreds of attendees. New performance series this year too! Buy an advance or VIP ticket and Win This Drum - be entered into the raffle to win the Chicago Drum Company custom snare drum.
The Snare Drum Olympics. No, we don’t throw them like the discus or sweep in front of them like curling stones. We set ‘em up, play ‘em, judge ‘em, record ‘em, video ‘em, publicize ‘em and drool over ‘em!
Info about all the above can be found at NashvilleDrumShow.com.
We have some new writers this month. Roger Locke is a Camco expert and will be writing a regular column about what he and many other drummers think are the best sounding drums ever made. Paul Kneipp contributed an in depth feature article about the history of the Australian Drouyn Drum company. Chicago drummer Jason Batchko contributed a great article about a great thrift store find he made; a 1923 Conn engraved gold plated snare drum that belonged to Frank Biggs, a working Chicago jazz drummer and noted songwriter.
