In 2014 I decided it was time to start something new, and since I have been pouring myself into music almost completely I decided I should start something that we can grow into an opportunity to support ourselves with our music. So I decided to start a drum store. Currently we’re mostly selling doumbeks and tars, but also some djembes and riqs. We also have a decent selection of drum heads and zils. Eventually we’ll expand the product line to include stringed instruments and more drums, like Tupans, Tabla, and Zarb, and perhaps some wind instruments if we can.
We also have some learning materials, Raquy Danziger’s books, and Billy Woods rhythm CD. And Sarah is teaching drumming classes, both at events and at our home. Eventually we’ll be producing our own rhythm CDs and music and it’s likely we’ll both eventually teach classes and private lessons once we get enough students.
So far it’s been a really great experience for both of us, we have a lot of fun selling at events andwe’ve also sold a number of drums online. I’d love to get a lot more drums into people’s hands, so please checkout the Gypsy Drums at any of these locations:
