History Of The Drumset: Chicago-Style Drumming

"Prohibition is enacted, leading to the decade known as the Roaring Twenties. Chicago, with its culture of gangsters and illegal speakeasies, offers a rich environment for the underground but highly danceable sound of jazz to thrive."


"In this 16-part series, Vic Firth and Daniel Glass will be looking at 100 years of drumming evolution. Learn about the key events and advancements that shaped the drumset we know and love today!

"Visit the Vic Firth website today for an interactive timeline and hundreds of great photos cataloging the history of our instrument the drumset!"
