About the Owner

Ed started playing drums when he was sixteen after attending a concert. In 2010, he started buying and selling drums out of his garage and online.  Many of his original garage customers still frequent the store.  His passion for drums, gear, sales and deals and also the drum community pushed him into opening a store for all of the drummers out there looking for a place that caters to them.  Every day we have new gear for sale and new customers from around the world. You will always find something custom or artist used in our store.  Our goal is to have things you will never find in a big box store for a great price. Thank you for choosing us!
