Who was last year's top Gretch USA custom dealer? It wasn't a knife or a spoon, but a Fork. KMC Music recently named Fork’s Drum Closet as the Top Gretsch USA Custom Dealer for 2009. In celebration, the company’s custom drum workshop designed and produced a commemorative award made of a USA custom snare shell cut in half and wrapped in black glass glitter nitron, mounted on wood that was finished in piano black gloss lacquer. Representatives from KMC presented the award to Fork's during a Stanton Moore clinic held last month. Congratulations to Gary and Melissa Forkum as well as the entire Fork's Drum Closet family!
