When it comes to musical instruments, studies show drums as the most popular one to play. Today, the American Drum Shop in Tyler held its fourth annual Duel of the Drummers. Drummers of all ages came to show off their talents. Local musicians judged the competition. The winners received a trophy. The drum set used in the competition is on sale and costs about $35,000.
"Anytime you have anything to do with music, I mean it just helps with your character and giving you something to do," said Ken Nardo Murray, Manager of American Drum Shop. "It's just a real great thing for youth and young people to get into." Murray also says playing the drums is good exercise.
