  • Shane is in the new Drumhead Magazine!

    Drumhead Magazine has published a very special issue entitled "Ensnared, A Tribute to Snare Drums".  This is an incredibly in depth issue with over 40 of the top drummers around the globe discussing the tools of their trade, what they've used them on, and other tales surrounding them.

    Shane has had the luxury of playing more snare drums than the average drummer, and he  was asked to supply an editorial on snare drums.  This is about as in depth as he has gotten in print discussing snare drums, there may be a thing or two that you'll learn about him and the drums at Drum Center of Portsmouth.

    This is a limited release, so get your copy now!

    We have them available here!

  • So Mellow. So Good.

    2194 grams of pure bliss! This Paiste Masters 'Blue Bird' Mellow ride is a joy to play. The stick sound is crisp and articulate, but it's far from "pingy". The wash is always there but never in the way. The medium pitch is pleasant and balanced, without any stray overtones.

    I'll be honest: if you're playing metal, this isn't the cymbal for you ... but if you're playing basically anything else, this will fit right in!

  • Gretsch USA Copper Snare Drum 14x6.5 Black Plated | Drum Center of Portsmouth

    The Gretsch USA snare drum program is legendary - there's a wide range of tones available, lovingly built by craftsmen using only the top quality materials. Copper's inherent softness makes for a drum that is warm and articulate while at the same time having the cut and presence of a metal shell. The drum's almost wood-like tonal quality is perfect for situations that require both power and clear stick definition. The 1mm polished copper shell also comes with our Micro-Sensitive throw, 42-Strand snare wires, die cast hoops and a 'Snap-In' key holder.

  • Sabian Artisan Light Hi Hat Cymbals 14" | Drum Center of Portsmouth

    Dudes. These hats are extremely nice. Someone please buy them so I don't have to. Because they're beautiful. So, so beautiful.

    Deep, dark and rich, 14" Artisan Light Hats deliver complex tone with crisp yet soft stick sounds, for dynamic responses at all levels. With their high-density hand hammering design for musically-rich dark tone, Artisan Hats have always been synonymous with masterpiece. Artisan Light Hats now offer drummers all of that Artisan sound for low-volume situations. The key to this new design lies in pairing a thin-crash weight top with a medium-light weight bottom, resulting in lower-pitched tone than Sabian's regular Artisan Hats. This combination also adds more complexity and more open sound, which in turn makes them a great choice for lower volume situations. However, drummers would be wrong to view these as exclusively intended for low volume. While not designed for loud and heavy bands, their complexity and rich, dark tone are ideal for virtually any other setting.
