On Sunday 5th May, Dave's Drums hosted our second One Day Drum Shop event. We welcomed drummers from Berkshire and beyond to Grazeley Village Hall, where were were joined by The Cambridge Drum Company, Impression Cymbals, Skins DPM and Wokingham Drum Sales.
It proved to be an awesome afternoon of drum chat, trying and testing, buying and drinking of FREE hot brown beverages!
We had an amazing time #bringingdrummerstogether, and can't wait to do it all again on Sunday 11th August!
Who'll be there?
One Day Drum Shop is hosted by Dave & Sophie from Dave's Drums, Reading's drum specialists, who will bring a selection of both new & pre-loved drum gear (Code Drum Heads & Remo drum heads, Vic Firth sticks, SlapKlatz dampening gels, Gibraltar spares, plus second hand cymbals, stands & snare drums, cases etc).
Paul will be coming along from RJR Custom Drums - RJR Custom Drums specialise in re-wraps, and Paul Robertshaw will be happy to chat you through any of your drum wrapping needs.
Then there's Paul from Impression Cymbals GB. Impression are hand hammered Turkish cymbals, and as well as Paul (their UK distributor), we will also have the pleasure of the company of Jason Smith, an Impression endorsee and enthusiast.
Dave Longman will be there to talk you through Skins Drum Performance Method - a drum book written by Dave himself. It's a great option for drum pupils working towards grade 1, offering a multitude fun play-along tracks that gradually introduce more complex rhythms. This is a great opportunity for drum teachers to check out Dave's book and see how it might fit with their teaching.
And hopefully (!!!) Leanne all the way from Black Shed Drums (in Burrow in Furness, which is way north of Watford!!!)...keep checking back for updates!
There will be FREE (yes, free!) coffee, tea & biscuits, plenty of drum chat & geekery, and a chance to catch up with other drummers.
