We had an amazing time #bringingdrummerstogether last Sunday, 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.
Register your interest via EventBrite or Facebook using the links below, and stay up-to-date!
We look forward to seeing you there!
This year seems to be passing at an alarming rate and the "C" work is rapidly approaching.
Dave is flat out in the workshop refurbishing drum kits, but it seems that as fast as he is working on them, people are buying them!!!
We do have a few kits available to buy (see below), but increasingly we are receiving phone calls from customers wanting to "pre-order" a particular kit.
The great news is that we do have almost 20 kits waiting for their facelifts - from beginner level right through to professional level - so if you're after something in particular for Christmas (or even the New Year), give Dave a call with your requirements.

He's also going to the UK Drum Show on Sunday 30th September
- he'll be wearing his Dave's Drums T-shirt, so easy to spot!
Also, we are doing the Shine Walk in aid of Cancer Research UK on the weekend of 22-23rd September, so if anyone's crazy enough to be doing it as well, give us a nudge - we might see you there!
For any pupils reading this, term starts for lessons on Friday 7th September.
That's all for now...
A big hello to pupils old and new!
