About this product
- DescriptionThe 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.
- Author BiographyPaul Balmer, who has written six Haynes Manuals about guitars, is the son of dance band drummer Bill Balmer. Paul played drums from the age of 11 in the Merseybeat boom of the 1960s. He built his own kit from bits and pieces and, having no other option, did his own maintenance. His perfectly preserved 1964 Premier kit will be examined and maintained as a case study. His father's 'bitsa' 1940s dance band kit will provide a useful historical reference.
