London has seen its fair share of music stores throughout the years, Footes has a rich history and has stood the test of time. Not only is Foote’s a drum store with an enthusiastic and knowledgable team, it also exhibits a strong heritage and cultural importance within the drumming community. This year I was invited to take part in their ‘Best of British’ event, an annual showcase championing a range of British manufacturers. (The British Drum Co., Bill Sanders Practice Pads, Analog Drums and Aerodrums). It was a warming experience with everyone which felt like being welcomed at a family gathering. See you there next year!
