Son of Drum

Son-of-drumSon of Drum are wholesalers and retailers of a variety of musical instruments:  Djembe drums, didgeridoos, banjos, mandolins, ukuleles, Native American flutes and Byron’s biggest range of percussion instruments. They also sell instrument accessories such as bags, straps, tuners, capos, strings, stands, picks, drumsticks and provide services such as restringing and drum reskinning.

Son of Drum has been in operation for over three years although they have only had the shop in Mullumbimby since November last year. Their first birthday coincides with the Mullum Music Fest.  They are  celebrating by presenting a series of workshops including African drumming, didgeridoo, ukulele and Native American flute. All welcome!

If you can’t make the birthday celebrations, don’t despair.  Son of Drum run a weekly beginners' African drumming class and are looking for participants for an intermediate or advanced class. They are also getting together some kids workshops for the school holidays. So please contact them if you are interested.

There’s a host of reasons people come into Son of Drum. They come to buy a new instrument either for themselves or as a present for friends or family, or maybe they just need new guitar strings or drumsticks. Either way they’ll be greeted with friendly and attentive service and all options will be explored, the customer will be able to take into account all considerations and will go home knowing they have been looked after and have received not only good advice but a good deal.

Since moving to Mullum Ben says he has never before felt such a strong sense of community. They have made so many friends already and Ben comments, 'some have even generously put forward their time to help us out when things have been difficult to manage on our own.  It’s really humbling and we are truly grateful to be a part of it.'
