This is the second largest such drum show in the country where drummers of all ages come tobuy, sell and trade drum gear. George Lawrence, organizer of the event, says, “The manufacturers have really hopped on board with what used to be “vintage and custom only” shows like this one and the Hollywood and Chicago Drum Shows. The number of drummers who attend has grown tremendously. We are drawing from a twelve state area and from lower Ontario. We have many drum shops and music stores exhibiting as well. We also cut the show back to one day to make it affordable for everyone concerned during this recession. Booths and tickets are cheap.”

The Snare Drum Olympics is a showcase and competition of the best snare drums built by both custom drum builders and major brand drum manufacturers. The new Cymbal Olympics is a similar contest for cymbal manufacturers to put their best cymbals forward to be judged by a panel of judges and by the public at the Ohio Drum Show on Sept. 19th. All of the instruments are publicized on YouTube, in Not So Modern Drummer and other drum magazines, and on popular drumming websites.
