There’s a National National Pie Day, a National ‘No Bra’ Day and even a National Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day (what?!!). Drum roll please…. now there’s a National Drumming Day! Created by the proprietors of Drumming.com and celebrated on November 15th, National Drumming Day celebrates the world of drums and drumming.
Julian Pavone might only be 7 years old but the Guinness Book of World Records has just declared him, “Youngest Professional Drummer”. This pint-size tub-slapper has already been on talk shows like Good Morning America, Oprah Winfrey and Inside Edition. To qualify for the Guinness record Julian had to receive payment for performing on a commercial record as well as playing at least 20 live performances in five years.

The drummer’s stickbag is like a case that holds a precious set of woodworker’s tools. While a carver uses knives and chisels to make artwork in the wood, the drummer’s sticks, mallets and brushes are the tools that paint our music. And the case holds and protects these tools. – StickBags.com

And you thought you lost a lot of work when drum machines hit the market. Wait til you see this!
Of course we’re only half kidding. Notice I said “half”. ;) This robot might look kinda of silly right now but it’s only a matter of time before they perfect these things and put them on the market. Think no one will buy them? There are a number of band leaders out there that would be happy to trade a slightly stiff feel for a bad attitude. Ha! OK, I’m not saying they’ll take over, but we’ll definitely have some new competition. – Look out drummers!
It’s sometimes hard to find places online to buy drums or sell drums for free but they’re still out there. Check out Drum Bum’s used drums page. You can’t post a picture but you can sell your drums for free or search some of the used drumsets that are posted there.
If you ever need a shortcut to this page you can go to DrumClassifieds.com.
