Today I had an experience. I came in to see if there was a foot tambourine to add to our band and left happily having spent about $100 for parts of a foot pedal and real tambourine. Alan is so knowledgable, patient, service oriented and gracious I gladly left the $ on the table and can't wait to use my new prize!

Ongoing classes at DrumConnection. I really grow as I attend the classes. I look at the drummer I was a few years ago, and I am thankful for how far these classes have brought me.

I was able to take care of many on my Christmas list; hand drums for my kids, lessons for their Dad and a tambourine for me.

Thanks for the help!!

This is an interesting shop packed full of drums and drum accessories, some limited art and textiles and jewelry and loaded with passion by the staff. John was a pleasure to talk to and shared his fascinating background in his own training and love of drumming. Very special jewel of a place!

Alan at the drum connection made for a great drum buying experience. I told him the sound I was looking for and he quickly began demonstrating several different options he thought would work. I never felt like he was just trying to sell me something. He clearly has good quality instruments at great prices. Will definitely come back here for my next purchase.
