On January 30, 2021 Dave Loyal of Loyal Drums presented a 90-minute workshop on Drum Maintenance and Optimization. This workshop was well attended with over 45 folks in attendance. Dave demonstrated the key points of preparing the rope, heads, and muffling, and then demonstrated how to put a drum together and gave simple tips that you should use to optimize your sound each time you play.

If you were unable to attend, or if you want to re-watch the workshop, the recording is available on YouTube. This workshop is for drummers of any level of experience, corps directors, or anyone who is generally interested in learning more about taking care of drums.
