The drum is the most universally distributed of all instruments. There is no ethnic group anywhere in the world that doesn't know the drum. This comprehensive volume by Dr. Joseph H. Howard, one of the country's leading authorities on drums, relates the complete story-from primitive origins to the present day-of the drum in this hemisphere. Anthropologically sound and fascinating from any point of view, Drums in the Americas discusses the heritage of the drum from its communal use as an instrument of warning to one of ritual and ceremony to its final evolution as a musical instrument. From Indian tribal drumming to the complexities of big-beat rock 'n' roll and modern jazz, the story of the drum in the Americas is told with intelligence and vitality. Handsomely illustrated, Drums in the Americas is an important contribution to Americana and a significant addition to the world's musical knowledge.

"ActiveMusician has exceeded all my expectations of an on line equipment purchase. Not only did you confirm my shipment within minutes of my inquiry, you upgraded for Saturday delivery in an emergency situation. And you went the extra mile again to provide tracking numbers to my home and work e-mail. It was an absolute pleasure doing business with you and I will recommend your services to anyone looking to buy online."

"I must say your website is far better than any other I've encountered during my conquest for guitar picks sold on the web or at any retailer in my new town of residence. Your site was the first I've seen (of many) to have picks listed in an accessory department (the pictures were really swell) or any other I've checked, for that matter."
