Vic’s Drum Shop in Chicago, IL, one of the world’s premier retailers of drums and percussion equipment, will present a Meinl Day event on Saturday, August 9th, from 11am to 5pm. The free event will feature door prizes, demos and workshops, and special pricing on all in-stock Meinl cymbals and percussion.
“This is our first Meinl event, so we’re extremely excited to feature the company at Vic’s,” says Victor Salazar, owner of Vic’s Drum Shop, which has carried Meinl’s entire catalog of cymbals and items from its percussion lines since the store opened in 2011. “Meinl is one of the ‘big four’ cymbal manufacturers in the world, and their well-regarded, high quality percussion instruments make them even more unique.”
Appearing at the event and presenting an interactive workshop at 5:30pm will be extreme metal drummer and Meinl artist Derek Roddy, who last appeared at Vic’s at the store’s grand opening. Famous for his ability to record entire drum tracks in one or two takes, Roddy is regarded as one of metal’s best and fastest drummers, and has played and recorded with Hate Eternal, Nile, Malevolent Creation, Divine Empire, Council of the Fallen, Today Is the Day, Traumedy, and Aurora Borealis.
In addition to performing at the Meinl event, Roddy will also show off his music retail expertise by personally advising and assisting shoppers in their selection of new gear.
“What makes Vic’s Drum Shop special is their attention to detail, top service, and excellent stock,” says Roddy. “There aren’t many other stores in the world where you get such great customer care and coolness.”
Event attendees will be eligible to win valuable Meinl door prizes, including:
- An 18" medium crash cymbal
- A cymbal bag
- A stick bag
- A Makah-Burl string cajon
- Signed Derek Roddy cards and posters
“Along with the excellent quality of all of their cymbals, percussion, and accessories, Meinl also delivers a complete range of price points that are right for every drummer, from beginner to pro,” says Salazar. “Attendees who aren’t familiar with Meinl’s exceptional offerings will be pleasantly surprised at their outstanding quality and superb value.”
Meinl Day at Vic’s Drum Shop will take place on Saturday, August 9, from 11am to 5pm. Vic’s is located in the Music Garage at 345 North Loomis Street, Chicago. For more information, contact Vic at 312-770-1200.
