As part of the 2017 Absolute Music Superstore Anniversary celebrations, the music retailer (based near Poole and Bournemouth in Dorset) has teamed up with iconic UK drum brand Premier, to give you the chance to win a Premier Modern Classic Snare while showing off what you can do around a drum kit.
All you have to do to enter the competition is: Practice (or not) a one minute solo until you are ready to record, upload the video recording to Youtube (or something similar), fill in the form on the competition page (https://www.absolutemusic.co.uk/best-drum-solo) before 25th September and that’s it! The panel of judges (which includes Mike Dolbear, Zel Kaute and Austin Lane) will pick their favourites on the 12th October.
Up for grabs is a Premier Modern Classic snare drum, which hardly needs an introduction but suffice to say that the highly sought after Modern Classic certainly lives up to its name and is used by many widely-respected professionals, make no mistake…this snare is the real deal!
You have until mid-day of 25th September to submit your entry. If chosen as the winner you may be asked to perform at our special anniversary month closing party on Wednesday 25th October in Bournemouth. The competition is open to drummers of any age and style in the UK.
Throughout October Absolute Music will be celebrating 5 years of being in their Knighton Heath superstore by holding more seminars, workshops, in-store only promotions and competitions than you can shake a maraca at. The current prize fund stands at more than £20,000 with goodies from the biggest brands in guitars, drums, keyboards, live sound, recording and music tech up for grabs.
Absolute Music moved into the 24,000-square foot music superstore and studios complex in 2012 with dedicated showrooms across two floors for guitars, amps and effects; DJ & live sound; synths & keyboards; hi-tech and drums. The on-site recording and rehearsal studios are always in high demand with local musicians, not to mention the attached café, serving hot and cold food and drink to visitors 7 days a week.
