Drumhead magazine announces that the magazine has acquired all the Drum! readership and subscribers. Beginning with the November/December 2019 issue all former readers of Drum! will now receive the drum magazine from the former competition.
Drumhead will be honoring the remainder of the Drum! subscriptions by sending issues of Drumhead to equal the amount of issues of Drum! The magazine also announces changes in the look and layout of the magazine and in the types of stories being told, with new contributors to the magazine and more contests and giveaways.
Drum! Magazine ceased publishing a few months ago after the company started on June 6, 1991. The website and Facebook page are still up and running however there is not mentioning of the magazine being shut down.
Originally spawned from Drums and Drumming, Drum! magazine was first launched under the publishing direction of Phil Hood, his wife Connie, and editor Andy Doerschuk in September 1991.
The last edition was the No. 269, Fall 2019 issue with Mitch Mitchell (The Jimi Hendrix Experience) on the cover. The two prior to that one featured Mike Portnoy and Todd Sucherman.
