Each year, during National Drum Month (November), the American Drum Shop and American Band Instrument Service have the annual “Duel of the Drummers" contest. The event is held in the American Band Instrument Service’s Music Education Center at 124 Shelley Dr. in Tyler, Texas. This is an all day event that brings drummers from around Texas to compete.

The competitors range from pre-school through adult. There are three age divisions. These divisions are traditionally13 and under (Youth), 14 through 15 (Juniors), and 16 and over (adult), We reserve the right to change the age limits a bit to balance out the competition. Each participant is given not more than 15 minutes to set up (rearrange) the drum set and perform a solo of his choosing.

The drum set used for the competition is always a professional set furnished by the American Drum Shop. Competitors are allowed to use their own foot pedal, cymbals, and snare drums, if they wish. The drummers are encouraged to bring their own roadies and fans.

We try to have a professional drummers, a professional guitar or bass player, and a music educator to make up the judging panel. Judging is done on a points system, so any age contestant can be the overall winner. The winner of each division gets a trophy and prizes that consist of drum equipment and a gift certificate. The overall winner gets a huge trophy and often has a drum set available as a choice of one of the grand prizes furnished by our suppliers.

It is always a day filled with great fun for everyone who attends. It is traditionally held the Saturday before Thanksgiving.
