SEE PICS: Drums, vinyl, & cocktails at Drum Arcade

We met, shed, shopped for drums, had cocktails, and listened to funk records. Got other photos? Upload using hashtag #DrumArcade and #DrummersofNY.

Thanks to our brand sponsors Promark and Evans, to A&F for debuting their Whiskey Maple Field kit and snares with us, to C&C Drums for coming to the event with rad drums & pizza, and for all the #drummersofny for rolling through on a cold AF day. Photos by Nina Westervelt. Records by @salvage.sound.
