Paul Jacki is a household name in certain circles around Chicagoland. He has worked in just about every successful drum shop from Frank's to Drums Ltd. to The Drum Pad. We here at Maxwell Drums have been friends with Paul for many years with my father first meeting him back at Frank's in the seventies/eighties and Jr. experiencing his first drum shop (The Drum Pad) during Paul's time there. Paul is a great jazz player also with plenty of enjoyable stories to tell! We are happy to have him here with all of his insights and knowledge for this fun dialog, enjoy!!

This is our talk on the history of one of Chicago's own historic drum manufacturing companies, Slingerland. This company made many innovations over the years, and we try to touch on many of these. They had their own personal sound that you really can not miss and is rarely replicated today. They are also soon to see a renaissance as the name is now owned by DW and they have big plans for the future! We hope you enjoy this episode.
