“We feel the time is right for ToneAlly to take the reigns of Drum-Off UK and to offer this opportunity to all of those dedicated drummers who are using their time in the pursuit of excellence. Be it groove or gospel chops! The drumming community is like no other community you’ll ever experience. They are so supportive of each other. Everyone seems to want to better themselves and share something good, when they have it!”
Tony McNally (Founder of ToneAlly)
As well as holding the title ‘Drum-Off UK Drum Soloist Champion 2020’ the 4 UK winners will each receive a ‘ToneAlly Design 5 Delux’ (along with some other great goodies from our sponsors) and will go on to represent the UK in the Drum-Off Global 2020 competition. The winners of the Drum Off Global will be flown to Canada to perform and record their drum solos at Drumeo Official early next year!
