Wow! What a night.
First of all, THANKS to all of our customers who have supported us through the 30+ years, four locations, the economic ups and downs and the changing trends which has allowed us to be Portland's #1 drum shop
Thanks for being so great to work with. You were quick to respond and I am just so pleased with the whole experience. I will definitely visit your shop in the future and tell friends about you, too!
I can NOT say enough positive things about this shop, the people who work there, or the quality of their instruments. They’ll work with you to help you figure out what you need, and then bend over backwards to get you the best deal.
I wish I could give more than five stars.
It's awesome having a great drum store so close to home. Nice, helpful crew, good selection, and they've introduced me to some gear and brands I didn't even know existed. Happy to support a local shop!
I've been going here for all my drumming needs. I always receive great expert advice and helpful suggestions. They've set me up with awesome equipment and offer lay away. Highly recommended!
These guys have been around a long time and like a fine wine, keep getting better and better - bigger and totally complete. They have it all. Best selection of percussion I have seen anywhere; I even took a plane there from Boston to shop! Great selection - staff is very helpful and knowledgeable - and the location is convenient. Even for me 3,000 miles away. You can order online and they ship same day with discounted shipping rates. THE place on the west coast for drums!
We received amazing, personal service. They spent time with us and let our son try out a number of snare drums. When he selected a used drum, they cleaned it up and put a new head on it. All this and they stayed late to take care of us. 5 star service all the way!
