Vic’s Drum Shop, America’s largest independent drum retailer, has been selected to be an official vendor for the Chicago Public School (CPS) district. Vic’s is one of only a few drum/percussion specialists among the approved CPS vendors.

“Students and teachers from all of Chicago’s public schools can now take advantage of our huge drum percussion inventory, our unparalleled expertise, and excellent customer service,” says Victor Salazar of Vic’s Drum Shop. “Along with supplying equipment, Vic’s will also be able to offer onsite consulting and repairs for our city and suburban CPS clients.”

To commemorate their relationship with CPS and their support of public education, Vic’s will offer a 5% discount on purchases to currently enrolled students and currently employed teachers from across the United States. The discount can be applied to both in store and phone order purchases, and doesn’t apply to web orders or items that are already discounted.

“Vic's is the best percussion store and resource in the country,” says Patrick Benson, a Music Educator in the Chicago Public School system. “Their knowledge and customer service are impeccable. There are many percussion stores in the Chicago area, but at Vic’s, they step up their game to a level that the others can't compete with.”

The Vic’s Drum Shop student/teacher discount will be valid for two years from registration date. Some restrictions apply and this offer is only available to students who are enrolled at, and teachers who are employed by, an accredited public education institution.

To sign up for the discount, students and teachers should bring their current valid ID to Vic’s Drum Shop or scan both sides of their ID and email it to education(at)vicsdrumshop(dot)com. For more info, contact Vic’s Drum Shop at 312.770.1200.
