As you all know the percussion music industry lost a giant yesterday in Steve Weiss. Their strong web presence came well after setting the standard (pre-internet) with their mail order catalog. This shopping catalog wasn’t only a way to order via mail but became the ultimate reference for instruments and repertoire. It was like Christmas back in the day receiving the new Steve Weiss catalog!

All of us at Drumchattr say thanks to Steve for what he has done for our art. And, of course, we say thanks for his support of Drumchattr!

There are some amazing stories about Steve on the Steve Weiss Facebook Page. We encourage to NOT leave your thoughts below but on the thread above. Thanks for everything Steve!
