It almost sounds too good to be true. The Percussion Marketing Council will launch a campaign to coincide with November’s International Drum Month, which is guaranteed to put free gear and swag into your hands.
All you have to do is download the official “Play It Like You Mean It” coupon from the PMC website – playdrums.com – or clip it in from one of your favorite drumming magazines. Then just bring it to your local music store, have it signed at the store, attach the store’s business card, and mail the coupon and store’s business card to the PMC.
You’ll have your choice of two beginner packs: one for drum set players (which will include either a pair of drum sticks or a splash cymbal, along with educational books and DVDs) or hands drummers (multiple hand-held shaker sets with supporting how-to-play materials). The best part of free gear is the free gear.
