How to buy, maintain and improve your drum-kit
By: Paul Balmer
The modern drum-kit has come a long way in the 110 years that have elapsed since it evolved in around 1901 in the bars and brothels of New Orleans - but the principles remain the same.
The biggest improvement has been the introduction of better engineering and sturdier hardware - all of which needs constant maintenance.
This latest addition to the expanding list of Haynes Manuals about musical instruments covers the subject in exhaustive detail with step-by-step instructions and clear colour photographs.
