    1930's Slingerland Broadcaster on Reverb

    I have a similar kit. Late 30s Radio King. Only one tom, though, so I'll sell my kit for only $22,300. And I'll throw in a free pair of sticks. And my car. And a good time.

    What would you do?

    Sounds like not being able to play drums is a red herring. The only real problem here is that your wife wants to undertake a major change in the way you both live your lives, and you don't want to do it. You're open to compromise. She's not, saying it's her way or the highway (actually, I guess...

    A Brief History of New Beats

    Thanks for posting this. I didn't know that New Beats started out as just a bottom cymbal that could be matched up with anything else. And that New Beat sticker is awesome. That would make a great poster or banner.

    Wow! What's the story on how you could visit that many drum shops?

    Thanks, added. That walnut Gretsch kit he has on the web site is beautiful. Price is fair, too, since that combination of color, sizes, and condition is rare for an 80s Gretsch.

    Thanks for the heads up. I removed Chops, but I'll probably go back and create another list that includes all the suggestions for stores that aren't really stand-alone, percussion-only, showroom-with-regular-hours drum shops.

    It's there. In Towson, right?

    Ah, I see now. Google says they have regular, but it looks like they're located inside another, full-line music store, so that's probably the hours of the larger store. Also, it looks like it's vintage only. So I'll take them off the list. This list, anyway.

    Wood & Weather looks like an awesome shop. I didn't include them, though, because according to their website they're only open by appointment. Village Drum and Music is another cool place, but it's not a dedicated drum shop. They sell string instruments and electronics, too.

    Added A Drummer's Tradition, removed Vic's. I didn't add Mike's yet because it looks like they just offer lessons.
