    Default My wife and I just returned from vacation.

    We jumped in the car and headed south. Charlotte, Charleston, Savanah, and... Ridgeland.

    If you went down I-77, you were 2 minutes from my house as you passed through Statesville on your way to Charlotte.

    Everyone loves FREE... like this free drum forum. But like your car and even your drums, they require upkeep and maintenance and that requires money.

    Will you consider Shopping at Drum Bum to help support this forum?

    Or make a donation here.



    I know from working with Drum Bum through the years, that this forum is costly to run. It requires server fees, hosting, ongoing moderation, advertising, software upgrades, security certificates and IT work when it breaks. All in addition to the expenses that come from running a business. These costs are offset (hopefully) by members that click through to Drum Bum to make a purchase now and then, if not make a contribution to help keep it running.

    On behalf of Drum Bum, thank you for your consideration.

    I didn't order anything, but drums that I already had on order were in production while I was there. (Which is pretty cool!)

    Zack, you probably haven't made it to Drum Center NH have you? It's hardly worth a trip from WI but if you're ever remotely eastward it would blow your mind. Drum heaven.

    When my wife and I travel we usually find some drum related stop along the way.

    When we visited NYC we went to Steve Maxwell's shop, in Nashville we stopped at Fork's, on a trip to Chicago we stopped at Swee****er. This past trip it was a tour of the Gretsch factory.

    I have a very cool wife.
