Snare Drum Olympics

Bart Elliott

I was surprised that no one has mentioned this event, so I wanted to go ahead and give you a cue.

I was asked to shoot video for the Snare Drum Olympics this year. To see and hear over 60 drums from some 36 different drum makers and builders, go to Drummer Cafe TV and watch the On-Demand footage for the Snare Drum Olympics. You'll see the objective "blind" judging as well as the subjective judging for all these beautiful drums. You can also watch footage from the Southern Drum Show and Summer NAMM Show. Over four hours of footage, so if you are into gear, be sure to grab a cup of your favorite beverage and be prepared to sit awhile. :)
