Hawthorne Drum Shop started by stumbling upon a cheap Ludwig rocker set on Craigslist.  Though I had been playing in a band for over a decade, when I bought this set I had very little idea about the drums I had been playing. All I knew was I loved playing them. 

 After buying that kit, I learned about the wood, hardware, era, and even though it wasn't the best kit in the world, it spurred me to keep looking and learning. Soon, this became a hobby, which turned into an obsession, and Hawthorne Drum Shop was born.

Thank you for taking the time to check out the shop. Small business can't exist without consumers - and if you're anything like me, you love talking about drums. Take a spin around the site and don't hesitate to drop me a line.
