Yes, we REALLY ARE pet friendly here at The Drum Smith. Charlie stopped in to visit, and he’s not even a drummer – a saxophone player naturally. Charlie Bird (rim-shot!).
Tommy has been playing drums for 4 years, and has been studying with our top teacher, Larry Paoletta for two years. When local up-and-coming rock band The Magma Project gave Tommy a call looking for a new drummer, he knew his dedication to the art of drumming was about to pay off. Larry had prepared him for this kind of event. Tommy was undaunted working up the very difficult “Black Dog” -- yes THE “Black Dog” by Zeppelin – for the audition. Still, he put in the work to play with authority. Confidence, ability and work all paid off. Tommy got the gig! He cites John Bonham, Matt Sorum, and of course Larry Paoletta as his major influences. Join us in congratulating Tommy for a landing a great gig!
At long last, the new cymbal room is OPEN! Okay, it's not actually done, but at least it's up and running. Come check out the Greater Y-town's biggest, best (and most affordable!) selection of cymbals. Zildjian, Sabian, Paiste, Wuhan, Meinl; New. Used. Big. Small. Bright. Dark. Creamy. Jagged. Earthy, with a woody finish and a hint of citrus, etc. Crashes, Rides, All the Chinas (no tea, sorry). Special EFX. We have them all.
We also have a kick and snare set up exclusively for trying them in context.
And there are more cymbals arriving every day.
Stop in and try a few.
Yes, here at The Drum Smith, we are PET FRIENDLY!
This is Bobby, a 10 week old "Puggle" who came to visit just the other day.
He brought along some humans; one took a drum lesson, the other paid for it (that's her toe in the picture).
Bobby was instantly the most popular person in the store.
Don't hesitate to bring your pet to The Drum Smith.
