Two-Day Event Promises Education, Artistry, and Performance

Cymbal Summit 2010On May 7 and 8, 2010, drummers of all ages will gather from around the world to attend Cymbal Summit, the first international conference dedicated to the cymbal. The two-day conference, hosted by Memphis Drum Shop, will feature the top cymbal manufacturers, industry experts, performers, and artisans - along with the world's largest collection of cymbals - all gathered in one spot.

Cymbal Summit is part of Memphis Drum Shop's commitment to continuing education and entertainment. "Cymbal Summit will truly be a unique event for everyone involved from the attendees to the manufacturers," said Jim Pettit, owner of Memphis Drum Shop. "Never before has this caliber of talent and industry been together for one event."

Participating cymbal companies include Zildjian, Sabian, Paiste, Meinl, Istanbul Agop, Bosphorus, and Hammerax. Each company will have a custom booth showcasing their best experts, unique displays, exclusive offerings, as well as appearances by their finest endorsees. For the true percussion enthusiast, a limited number of VIP tickets are available to those who seek the ultimate cymbal experience. VIP's will get extraordinary access to all the top cymbal professionals, scheduled educational presentations, live performances, and behind-the-scenes festivities. VIP's will receive a $300 coupon towards the purchase of any cymbal and a "Welcome Gift Bag" which contains some very special items exclusive to Cymbal Summit. While the Memphis Drum Shop retail store will be open to the public during the event with special displays and cymbal sales, all Cymbal Summit presentations, performances, and sponsored catering events are available only to the VIP's. Memphis Drum Shop has also arranged an optional experience for Cymbal Summit attendees - Record at Sun Studio - the most famous recording studio in the world and the Birthplace of Rock N' Roll. For only $75, attendees will get 15 minutes of session time with a "Live" band and leave with a CD of their recording.

A limited number of student scholarships will be available to provide the music student with access to Cymbal Summit presentations, performances, sponsored catering events, and the gift bag.
