It's the best drum lesson anyone could take! Primitive drums, Irish drums, Latin drums, drums from the Middle East and India: whether they're framed, staved, carved, or clay, the basics for making every one of them is here, provided by a master of the style. Photos colorfully display the culturally diverse drums and methods of construction in an easy-to-follow fashion, from choosing and attaching a drumhead to dealing with tacks, staples, and pegs; from learning lacing logistics and knot-tying to working with hoops and adjustable hardware. Both ancient and contemporary techniques are featured, along with projects for every one, instructions for drumhead tuning, and a wealth of historical detail.

"Thanks again for everything you've done. I couldn't have asked for any better service, nor have I received any better service. I've been treated better by you than I have the local music stores where I deal in person. You can expect to get ALL of my business from this point forward!!! Feel free to post anything I've sent you on your testimonials page. I'll be glad to write something detailing my experience, if you'd like."
