The following video is the first of a three-part segment on vintage drums.  The interview was shot at Steve Maxwell Vintage and Custom Drum Shop on 48th Street in Manhattan with store manager and vintage drum expert Jess Birch.  This segment covers “History and Construction.”  Keep an eye out for parts 2 and 3 in following posts, and later we will be posting other segments on “Heads and Tuning” and “Cymbals.”
