This upcoming Monday, Dec. 10th @ 6pm, @sugarpercussion hangout w/ hot dogs, drinks, etc. Jefferson has brought us in like family, we are so honored to work alongside him & be a small piece of support for the amazing work he already does. The drums are limitless, they speak for themselves. However, once we met Jeff and observed what he was all about, we loved his product even the more...all about supporting great hearted folks that do great work, it makes these wood circles even more fun & special! Hope to see you Monday with Jefferson, @jonathanwomble, @theasalanedrums, @brysonnelson, and the family!

These two beauties are up for grabs at the shop: Ludwig ‘Standard S-340’ and ‘Standard S-320 w/ All-Metal S-102 Snare’. Available in shop & online: www.nelsondrumshop.com // 615-948-1744

Two of some of the greatest folks you’ll ever meet in this photo. To the left is my dear friend Clay Fuqua whom has been immensely supportive, genuinely kind, and extremely uplifting during the length of our whole friendship, been an honor to work alongside him. He is a Yoda of vintage drums & when he’s not on the road with @sherylcrow, we’ve been fortunate enough to learn from his wisdom. To the right is the one & only @theasalanedrums. Asa manages our shop, hiring him has been one of the greatest business decisions we’ve made: extremely kind, great integrity, very helpful, and one hell of a friend. I have an overwhelming amount of respect for both these men. Thank you both immensely for the sincere friendship and for all you do in our community. Much love!

Such a rare and interesting snare now in the amazing hands of @sterloid 🙌🥁🤓 — #repost @nelson_drum_shop ・・・ This was a special piece in some recent inventory. Major Trixon & VOX fans, some classic shop favorites. We have a separate matching kit coming in this next week amongst other VOX and Trixon drums; however, this yellow goodness is now in the good hands of our friend, Mr. @sterloid. • • #officialsnaregeek #snaresoftheday #geargeek #snares #builders #morethenshells #instadrums #nerdfam #drummer #drumming #drumlife #snareaddict #heirloomdrums #drumnerds #snaredrum #snaredrumfreakz #snareporn #snareshow #customsnare #vintagesnare #nashvilleplayer #supervintage #throwback #nelsondrumshop #trixonsnare #arron #sterloid #classic

Love these two, neither are drummers but both like drums & I like them immensely. @jon.joseph & @savannah.joseph_ have been dear friends for several years & are some of the most missed friends from Los Angeles. We use to all tour together before they got married & we moved to Nashville, great memories & great people. P.s. Jon is killing it in Los Angeles & producing/engineering inspiring record after record, check him out. Love these two much & always fun to see them.

Though I’ll certainly be calling in sick the day this happens, @sugarpercussion’s owner Geoff will indeed be in Nashville, at @nelson_drum_shop on 12/10 at 6pm to try and hawk more of his “perfect circles”. On a serious note, please come by and throw me a lifeline. #sos

This here is my pal Jefferson, co-owner ‘w/ his daughter’ of @sugarpercussion. Jeff is one of the more sweeter, kindhearted, and generous people I know. He’s been trying to convince me through the length of our endearing friendship that he’s one tough & rough cookie but in actual accurate truth, he’s a teddy bear, extra soft & sweet. Come hangout with us, Dec. 10th @ 6pm, at the shop. We’ll be eating hot dogs, drinking tasty beverages, and talking/playing circles. Come have some fun, no signup, just come!

Checked out an awesome vintage drum shop in Nashville called @nelson_drum_shop today. Ive been following these guys for awhile and their shop didnt disappoint. They had a great variety of Leedy, Ludwig, Slingerland, Gretsch, and many more snares and full kits. It was a pleasure meeting the guys and I will definitely be back to pick up a few snares! -- -- -- -- #nelsondrumshop #drummer #drums #countrymusic #nashville #vintage

Have been immensely anxious & excited to announce this event. These guys, some of the greatest friends one could have, are gonna be hosting a @sugarpercussion event at our shop, December 10th @ 6pm. It’s undeniable how magical & versatile Sugar drums are; however, as quality as they come, that’s not even our favorite part...it’s the hearts behind it that I love & the focus: community, kindness, inclusiveness, friendship, and genuine care...no price can buy that. Incredibly honored to be holding this event at our shop & with some of our greatest friends, these three ridiculous knuckleheads. No time slots, no sales pitch - just a night of friends, hot dogs, drinks, and some drums, I suppose. Hope to see you there! 🤘🏼
