EP 6 - The History of Leedy Drums with Rob Cook

Rob Cook, founder of the Chicago Drum Show and Author of "The Complete History of Leedy Drums" and "The Leedy Way", gives us the complete history of the Leedy Drum Company. The amazing story begins with U.G. Leedy producing snare stands in his apartment in Indianapolis and evolves into becoming the largest manufacturer of drums in the world. Rob also teaches us about George Ways involvement in the rise and fall of Leedy.

Rob is the author of many great books (The Slingerland Book, The Ludwig Book, The Rogers Book..etc) and will soon be releasing "The Leedy Way" via Hal Leanord Publishing. I highly recommend reading anything that he writes, they are the most complete histories of all the major drum companies.

You can purchase all of his books through his website,
