Default Looking for a good drum store in the Blaine Washington USA area

Does anyone out there know of a good drum shop that is not too far south of Vancouver, BC Canada (in the USA)? I'm thinking of taking a 'road trip' and doing some Christmas shopping. I would like to check a few stores out before I make the road trip.

I think you may have to venture down to Seattle to find a good selection of drum related shops Kona. Happy "over the border" Christmas shopping!.

Hi

Sorry for the late reply. We have a new baby in the family and have been busy! It's a 7 week old Golden Retriever - a real sweatheart, but as much work as a new child so far.

Back to drums........My question here is:
Do you know of any great drum retailers in the Seattle area?
as an aside.............
I heard from Noel at Heartbeat this past week and he's certainly sounding busy!
Just out of interest I tried something different by switching out the 14" Mel Lewis hats I bought from Noel and slipped in the 10" splash on the bottom and the 10" Alchemy Bell for the top hat - it sounds great! I'm not giging, it's just for my own enjoyment. I'm using the 14" hats as auxillary crash rides - they're working out fine. But that Alchemy bell really cuts with that high pitched bell-like sound. It really works with the cowbell and woodblock off the snare doing some Latin/fusion-type fills.

Take care,

Cheers,

Kona

to be completely honest with you the best thing to do would be to come up to Vancouver and check out "Long and Mcquade" Great drum departments in all there locations

I shop at Long & McQuade.
There are some stuff they don't have and I end up ordering online.

They're pretty good though - bought a ton of gear from them in the past few months.

Merry Christmas - thanks for the post.
