George Kubicek, Yonkers Drummaker, Cranks Out Two Large Swiss-types
George Kubicek (shown above in his usual casual garb, sans the pseudo doo-rag, which appears to have been inspired by the Ancient Mariners) of Yonkers, New York (about a mile from where William S. Tompkins made his masterpieces 150 years ago) and near Mt. Vernon where Pat Cooperman got his start, has used the Winter months productively cutting, bending, and fashioning materials for two new Swiss-type rope drums (top photo). George is an engineer by day, drummer, drum restorer and drum-maker in his spare time.
George told the Blogmaster that the blond drum is spoken for but that the darker drum is available for sale (asking price $1,200). Contact George through this blog.
