Jim Greiner, internationally renowned, award-winning percussionist, clinician and educator has this to say about The Drum Doctor:

I highly recommend Dr. Tom for his exceptional work on hand drums. I've recommended him to students, drum circle participants and to fellow professional percussionists many times over the years, and he has always delivered top-notch work, always within the time frame he suggested, and always with a professional and upbeat attitude.

Thanks Doc for providing such a great service to the drumming community!
