Building at Drum Conf

The Drum Builders Conference is a yearly event, usually early summer, where drum builders come from far and wide to share their knowledge and teach their skills to students and other builders. Not to be missed!

Namory loves this conference, as a drum builder himself, he brings a great deal of knowledge to the table. He has a great time with all the builders and students that attend. If you are interested in drum construction-this is the place to be!Drum Bldrs
