Drum Workshop was founded in 1972 as a teaching studio by Don Lombardi. It originally offered private lessons and the occasional workshop. However, Lombardi and current Senior Executive Vice President John Good began a small drum equipment sales operation to cover the facility's operation costs.
After more than thirty years of innovation and tireless dedication to improving the way drum products are made, DW drums, pedals and hardware are the standard by which all others are measured. At Drum Workshop, The Drummer’s Choice® is more than a slogan, it’s a fact.
