Show report/pictures - a very British event.

Just back from exhibiting at the annual Jobeky show. This show is organised each year by Jane & Colin of Jobeky drums (electro acoustic), & features UK builders. It's small & personal, with great workshops & main stage clinics. I didn't get time to catch many of the clinics (featuring Karl Brazil, Ash Soan, Steve White, amongst others), but I did get time to whip round with the camera during setup. I hope you enjoy these pictures. Any questions about the exhibits, please chime in.

I'm completely screwed over today. So much work for a one day event, & I'm certainly feeling my age. The days of preparation & silly hours setting up/breaking down/travelling are a killer!

Oh my life. Remind me not to show Mr Madge those photos or he'll never let me go next year.

It looks like one heck of a busy day for you but I hope you can take it easy today! And it looks as if it was well worth the effort.

Looks like a great show! Beautiful stuff, as always, in the Guru booth. I'm beginning to feel like I live on the wrong side of the pond....lol.

Thanks :) I'm sure Mr. Madge would enjoy seeing you have a good time. Why not suggest to him you attend this year's London Drum show! Now that is a bucket of fun, & way bigger than this little event :)

No Mary, you have some superb shows in the US, & great prices too. Lucky girl :)

Great pix of a lot of great looking gear. The cajone exhibit looks funny though , like a bunch of boxes the guy forgot to unpack or something.

Ha yes, in fairness to all there, I did take these pictures about an hour before the show opened :)

Funny looking at the photos as you know it's going to be really loud. Yet, it all seems so quiet somehow. As usual, the Highwood and Guru gear stands out!

Have a day off Andy!

with you on the "fashion" bass drums Steve :(

Actually, Premier made quite a poor show of it IMO. I think they had some last minute staff calling off issues. Nevertheless, two kits & a few snares, for the UK's biggest drum maker, is a bit poor. You weren't allowed to play their stuff either. I wish them every success though.

Thanks Dave :) Yes, I am exhausted! It was quiet because I took these photo's before the show opened.

TO be honest, looking at all those other kits is exciting but they are just "old technology" to me now that I know so much about your drums Andy. I think you have ruined it for me but its true.

Dont get me wrong, would still like one of those High Woods....

Very cool.

Question: Who started the trend towards having a script badge that spells out the brand name? Surprised to see so many that do that.

Those are cool pictures, Andy. Great stuff, and of course, the Guru looks fantastic. It also looks like a lot of work! I hope there's a bar and a hot tub somewhere in the building.

Andy, thanks for all the cool pics! I've run through them several times now. It's like being a kid in a candy store.

If I were buying this kind of candy, I'd spend too much and make myself sick. ;-)
