our history

Established in 1978 by legendary Auckland drummer Frank Gibson Snr, Drum City quickly became well known in the music community. Although the store itself closed its doors in 2015, Auckland Drum School operates from the same space and continues Drum City’s proud legacy of working with the city’s best drummers.
