    Note from Shane:

    If there's anything that I really love to do in this business, it's bringing unique, never before seen products to our extended DCP family.  I also get the same level of enjoyment bringing famous drummers, and/or product desginers, so everyone can get "behind the curtain" and learn more about what makes this industry tick.  Similarly, I love to do this so you can give your feedback to these companies so they can improve upon what they are doing.  It's a win win.   Continue reading

  • DCP 6th Anniversary Party! June 6th!

    I can’t believe we’ve passed the 5 year mark!  It seems like yesterday that I was sitting on my end table as my office chair with my crappy hand me down PC with a blackberry (remember those?)  as my modem.

    In that time, we’ve been recognized as a TOP 100 Dealer by NAMM (3 years running!), we’ve received the Retail Excellence award from Music Inc. Magazine, and we’ve been recognized as a Top 200 global dealer of musical instruments by The Music Trades.  It’s been a whirlwind, and we can’t do this without your continued support, so allow me to sincerely thank you for that.   Continue reading

  • Sabian Factory Visit!

    The Sabian Cymbal factory is quite a drive from Drum Center of Portsmouth, so we decided to make this one count. Shane and Tom worked with Mark Love and Sabian Sound Team member Greg Zeller to pick out some of the most exciting sounds we could find. There's a place called "Area 51" in the factory, housing some incredible sounds, and some things that never should have happened. We managed to pick out some gems; nearly 150 cymbals are en route to DCP as we speak! Continue reading
