One of the most sought after drummers today, Keith Carlock will be hitting the road on a 13-city US clinic tour in April and May of 2012. Keith has been the driving force behind artists such as Steely Dan, James Taylor, Sting, John Mayer, The Blues Brothers, Wayne Krantz, and many others. His distinctive sound and unique approach have set him apart from other players of his generation. Since arriving on the music scene in the late 90s, Keith has topped several reader’s polls including #1 Pop, #1 Fusion and #1 All-Around in the 2009 Modern Drummer Readers’ Polls. Other career highlights include appearances at the 2008 Zildjian Drummers Achievement Award Tribute to Ginger Baker in London and the 2011 Percussive Arts Society International Convention (PASIC).

Hurry...Limited Time Zildjian Opportunity!
Here at Percussion Partners we just received our first sample from the Zildjian 2011 Rarities Collection- the 19” K Dark Thin Ride and we couldn’t be more pleased. This years limited offerings should be part of every serious cymbal lovers collection.
The K Dark Thin models have a lot of flexibility and are rolled EXTRA THIN and extensively Hammered to give you that distinctive VINTAGE K sound. The pairing of the 19” and 22” K Dark Thin Ride models complement each other with both their Ride and Crash qualities and together they can serve as your right and left ride- you pick which goes where! The 14” K Dark thin hats feature a Paper Thin top and Thin Bottom to perfectly finish off the set.
These extremely limited 2011 models are fun to play and fit in easily when volume is an issue. The small bell retains stick definition with a clarity of stick sound and the wash doesn’t over power your performance. They let you “play” and dig in without overpowering the band.

Pro Drum is pleased to announce the release of its highly anticipated documentary DVD,"Professional Drum Shop's 50 Years". More than 50 years in the making ,This l05-minute informative and entertaining documentary takes the viewer on a historical journey through Hollywood's recording and drumming industry, with rare film clips, pictures, stories and interviews with some of the most famous and influential drummers of our time.
"We wanted-to share the stories that we've been hearing (or telling) at holiday parties for years," says PDS owner, Dolores Yeager. " What started as a history of a small store became a collection of interviews with some of the greatest names in drumming history.”
"Professional Drum Shop's 50 Years" covers milestone moments such as the invention of the drum set, the rise of the plastic drum head and the arrival of the Beatles and their impact on the music scene from the 1960's to the modern day. Well known names such as Hal Blaine, Jim Keltner, Joe Porcaro, Emil Richards, Jake Hanna, and Remo Belli share their memories of the music scene in Los Angeles and the role of the Pro Drum Shop in their lives and music.
This beautiful kit was made for the 2010 Ludwig Catalog to the specifications requested by Professional Drum Shop of Hollywood and is a featured Ludwig kit in the store.
Like all Ludwig catalogs, the 2010 issue is sure to become a future collectors prize. This issue features the introduction of the Ludwig Legacy Exotic line in detail as well as some other limited edition models. With 101 years of drumming history, Ludwig catalogs have always been coveted for their nostalgic value and how they have helped to tell the story of the drumset and drum equipment trends over time. The 2010 catalog illustrates the commitment of the Ludwig Drum Company to quality in workmanship as the company enters its second century of being known as the "Most famous name on drums!".

It may say Zildjian .... It may say HiDefinition Ride... but each of the four identically named cymbals in this short video have their own distinct personality. They are all manufactured to the highest quality standards, but by the very nature of the production process, each of these “cast” Zildjian cymbal will have a unique sound and personality all of it's own.
All four of these Zildjian Hi- definition Rides that were inspired with input from Terri Lynn Carrignton were pulled right out of the cymbals bins at Professional Drum Shop in Hollywood,CA and are demonstrated by Stan Keyawa of Pro Drum .
The video, “Professional Drum Shop 50 years”, tells the story of real professional drummers creating a real PROFESSIONAL DRUM SHOP in Hollywood, California back in 1959. This was no accident, since it just happened to be located across the street from the MUSICIANS UNION LOCAL 47. Nearly every drummer of renown has passed through Professional Drum Shop's doors over the last 50 years, leaving a lasting impression, which is in evidence in the store today.
The store is plastered with images of the drummers who have made a contribution to our drumming community. Some names are burnt in the minds of every drummer, others names may be known only to a few. But all these drummers have meant something to Pro Drum. All have made a contribution to our craft in some way and Professional Drum Shop continues to honor them.
On Saturday, September 11, 2010, from 10AM-5PM, The Pro drum shop will host a Very Special-ONE DAY ONLY- ZILDJIAN CYMBAL sale with the best selection of K Constantinoples on the WEST COAST.
