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.

"I couldn't believe it! I ordered a drumset for my nephew for his birthday through your website just 2 days before his birthday. Ordering so late I just knew it wouldn't arrive until a few days after his birthday. I was thrilled when he called during his "big party day" to say it arrived and Thanks. He's still young enough that getting your birthday presents on the day of is still a big deal. Thank you so much!"

"When my fiancé told me he wanted an acoustic guitar for his birthday, I had no idea how I was going to pull it off. However, this site made it very easy for me. It is very easy to find what you are looking for and the "related items" helped me pick out some accessories. I did experience a problem when it came to shipping. One of my items was reported as delivered by UPS. But when I contacted ActiveMusician, they sent out another stand right away, and it still arrived in time! I have nothing but good things to say about this site, and I have already started telling everyone about them!"

"I would just like to take the opportunity to thank you for your quality customer service. Buying things off of the internet is still a little nerve-wracking for me and can seem very impersonal, but you guys have been awesome, I appreciate your quick responses to the emails and the guitar sounds great! I would have no problem in making future purchases through you and would recommend your service to others."
