I was in touch with Paul Cooper the middle of last week and the Gretsch factory was still operating.

Zildjian/Vic Firth office personnel are working from home. Don't know about the factory.

California is in lock down, so I assume DW is shut. I'm not going to ask anyone there.

This is going to have a crippling effect on an already fragile music industry when we finally come out on the other side of this. I'm afraid for a lot of my friends.

I would imagine the MI market has dried up for the moment.

Sadly, building drums are not an "essential industry" per CA governor's order........so I hope they have kits at home!

Ok. Everything is close, you have nowhere to play them. Everything is closed you have nowhere to buy them.You effing idiot, do you not see what is going on around you? I work in surgery/ICU. This is going to be really ugly. We are so completely unequipped to deal with what’s about to hit us. Give it a week, and let’s see if you can look outside your window safely.
So

Wow

sledgehammer him

but you’re right

how incomprehensible to ask if a drum company is still open

go get him crash!!!!
