Quick question ... I'm in NYC and want to buy some drum books before I return on Thursday.
Anyone recommend the best place to go?
:D

No way if I'm a drummer and I'm in the area am I not going to make it to Steve Maxwells.. 723 7th Ave 3rd Floor

I think Steve's may be the only one left. There is also the drum den across the river in NJ. I think they may be the only ones left.

Another vote for Steve Maxwells.

The only downside is navigating the mess known as Times Square!

Joking apart, if you have not visited before, it is not a 'normal' storefront, it is on the third and fourth floor of an office building, so looks may deceive, but it is well worth the visit.

There is a Guitar Centre, and a Sam Ash in NYC as well, of the two, I think Guitar Centre is marginally better.

Enjoy your stay

Maxwells is the place for drummers, nowhere else even comes close. The only issue is whether they have a large book collection.

If they don't, there is drummers collective and then the guitar center.
