A quick run-down of the drum shows on offer in the U.K. this autumn...
As drummers, it can be great to have a good old browse, a chat with the experts and an opportunity to try out some new gear. Unfortunately, a lot of us don't live close to large, specialist drum stores, so a great alternative (or addition!) is a visit to a drum show...
Drums shows often have the added bonus of workshops, masterclasses etc....what's not to love?!
In chronological order...
29th-30th September - The U.K. Drum Show @ Manchester Central, Manchester
Ticket prices: adult tickets from £20.48 (incl booking fees)
If you know of any others coming up, add them in the comments below and/or on our pinboard (just click the big, pink "+" sign)...
You may have noticed that we've been short of (or sold out of) a number of lines of Code heads in the past couple of months.
Code products have become exceptionally popular recently, and we've sold out because
(a) we sell more Code products than any other retailer in the UK and
(b) because the suppliers have now run out of some lines!
The great news is that the first shipment to allow us to restock has finally landed in the UK (albeit several weeks later than scheduled!)
We are hoping (by the end of next week) to have stocks of 14" Zero snare heads, 22" clear Blast bass drum batter heads, all sizes of Reso Ring and all sizes of Law tom heads.
The other thing worth noting is that as of 1st September 2018, prices across the Code range will be increasing.
Code are raising their prices for various reasons, including exchange rates & slight changes in specs (increased production costs).
We will be keeping our prices as they are until our current stocks are sold out, but these are limited, so we'd recommend you order soon to get your heads and accessories at current prices!
And don't forget to join our mailing list for £5 off orders over £50!
Devon-based originals rock band The Stone Angels are off on tour in September.
