Dave Dudley, the long-time manager of Song Bird Music, decided to turn his experience and passion for drums into his own drum shop and fill the void left by the store where he used to help musicians and music lovers. “I felt that Ottawa had a need for its own drum shop and hopefully with a combination of my many years of experience as a drummer and a drum retailer, the unique qualities that each of our staff brings, and with input from our customers, we will be able to make Dave’s Drum Shop a huge success,” says Dudley.
Dave’s Drum Shop provides quality drum and percussion products and services. Just like its predecessor, it offers used equipment, trade-ins, repairs and custom work. The popular no-hassle consignment service also continues to be offered for those who want to sell their gear.
You can also find excellent vintage gear at reasonable prices. Their new drum and percussion product lines include Pearl, Sabian, Zildjian, Gretsch, Premier, Gibraltar, Remo, Evans, Sonor, Vic Firth, and more — all at very competitive prices.
To browse most of their inventory, both new and used, visit their website, davesdrumshop. com. And if you can’t find what you are looking for on their website or in the store, they are always willing to do special orders and can usually get most items within two weeks, some much faster.
