Yikes it has been 10 yrs since the shop opened, Shane and the gang are holding their annual bash this Saturday June 8th.
They always have some nice giveaways, lots of reps from manufacturers too, anybody going ?

I ordered a set of Gretsch USA Customs from DCP a couple months ago and couldn't be happier with the purchase experience. Smooth transaction, quick delivery, and great follow-up service. I wouldn't hesitate to do business with DCP again!

I have done business with Shane and the staff at DCP on many occasions. Service is second to none; shipping prices are always the lowest to Iceland and they respond to emails within the hour most of the time, even on weekends. Wish I could visit.

Dang it. I’m moving to Saco, Maine in six weeks. Looks like I’ll miss this. Definitely with hit DCP after the move though!

Shane was instrumental in my Sonor SQ2 config and subsequent purchase...nice guy to boot.

A great store. I recently ordered a set from them - all done via email/online and Shane has been great to work with. I also really enjoy their online videos. It's a store run by musicians for musicians.
Agree!! I have bought many goodies from them in the past few years--most notably my Pearl Crystal Beat Concert Toms w/matching bass drum! Would love to visit someday...

Love the shop. Im not an easy customer, but Shane went out of his way.

I expect my hard to find DW parts package #1 one of these days (custom clearance can take a while here).

I wish I was going! My Mainer friends say spring has been cold, grey, and rainy this year but this weekend looks to be clear and sunny.

It's a great store. The people who work there are patient and knowledgeable, and funny. And the store smells great!

I'm expecting the fedex driver with a new snare and hi hat stand today from DCP, can't wait.
