I'm only 30 minutes outside of Philadelphia but to find a real drum shop I have to drive at least an hour and 1/2 to Harrisburg to go to Dale's Drum Shop, probably more drum items in that one store than the other stores in my area combined...

Don't know what the answer is...
I love Dale's drums. they are right up the street from me. I think they have the business model that all stores should follow. For one the store is owned by one of Buddy Rich's former drum techs and all the way down you have people who love drums. Some of them even give lessons.

I don't want to make this out to be an advertisement for them but they seriously got things down and have many repeat customers. GC is right up the rode, I seriously don't know how they even have a drum section.
