I was making a recording of a tune on my oud today, and I thought about Earthshaking music where I bought that oud about 20 years ago! Thought I'd search and see if it's still there. I'm still playing it oh so many years ago! I love Eartchshaking Music... I miss it now that I'm not in Atlanta (been gone since 2005). Very glad to see it's still there!
We're in Atlanta next weekend for a special TWO day tasting at Earthshaking Music ! As always, dozens of Dream Cymbals including some very rare prototypes will be in store! Kent Aberle and a bunch of Dream Artists from the ATL will be hanging around all weekend to talk all things Dream. The recycling program is also in effect so bring your old and broken cymbals in for even bigger savings! We can't wait to see you there!
We loved seeing so many Colorado drummers this past weekend at Rupp's Drums! We're setting up shop Nov 20/21 at Earthshaking Music in Atlanta next!
