How the drum competition works
The Drum-Off begins with store preliminary competitions at participating Guitar Center locations all over the United States.
Contestants will be judged on a three minute performance, and one winner from each store finals competition will be chosen to move up to the quarter finals, followed by semi-finals at five store locations.
Five winners chosen at the semi-finals will then convene at Club Nokia in Los Angeles, CA to compete for the grand prize in Guitar Center's Drum Off finals on January 17, 2015 in front of a live audience and a panel of judges. More information on rules and regulations at guitarcenter.com/drumoff.
Guitar Center Drum-Off is presented by DW, Promark, Orange County Drum & Percussion, LP, Meinl, Roland, Gretsch, Pearl, Vic Firth, Zildjian, Sabian, Remo, Tama, Evans, Drum Channel, Converse, Modern Drummer, and GoPro.
