Default Steve Maxwell's NYC Drum Shop

Hi Guys! Just for sharing...

Just for sharing..

I went for a business trip to NYC, and made me a space to go to SM Drum Shop.

Was a great decision!!

I was truly kindly received by the crew (a guy called Cress and a young Lady), and they allowed me to pick up all the Craviotto's from the snare wall, and tested into the studio room, surrounded by a hundred of cymbals and a 60's WMP Ludwig DownBeat ....

They also have a huge amount of vintage stuff there..... it was like heaven to me!

Here some pics, and my humble suggestion, if you are near by, just go to Times Sq. and enjoy.

ps.: I just bought a Tshirt!!!!

My rehearsal studio was in the Music Bldg on 38th & 8th so Steve's was a short walk for me. I went there quite often and just loved that place. I sure do miss NYC. But man, Southern CA has many so many treasures hidden here..

Someone call Cathy Rich, that cymbal case may have been stolen!

I was actually waiting for someone to pick up on that.
