A Different Drum: Guitar Center's Most Unusual Instruments
Aside from the obvious stringed instruments in store, the Guitar Center in Brookfield shows us the most unusual ways to make a little noise.
It's no surprise to find walls of guitars, banjoes and mandolins at the Guitar Center, located in the Plaza at Calhoun and Bluemound Road.
However, when we inquired what the most unusual instruments in store were, we were directed to the percussion section, and Ryane Martin, who was happy to share the myriad of unusually shaped instruments for making nearly any sound.
"Easily, drummers and percussionists are the most creative, which is why there are so many items here," Martin explained. However, he's a drummer himself, so he's probably a little biased.
Sure, you could easily spend around $2,000 for a drum set, but why not walk on the wild side a little, and for a lot less, with a darbuka?
Martin said the desire to create new and different sounds is what drives artists to seek out the exotic drums from around the globe, while also creating a market for new products that capture that sound.
