Hudson Music Vintage

The Hudson Music Vintage series is a collection of rare, out of print, classic and vintage drum books. Many of these books were drum education staples back in the day, written by some of the most well-known drummers of the era. We’ve located copies of these long gone books, digitized them, and made them available here to help preserve their legacy in drum education history.
