The 2112 Story
2112 Percussion was established in 1986 by Steve Johnson. We were the first drum specialty store to open anywhere in the Carolinas. Our mission from day one has been to offer our customers the finest equipment available. Now, with over 25 years in business, we know what gear is trash and what is treasure. We have access to all brands available today, but we have chosen to focus only on those that we feel offer the best quality and value.
Our offices and showroom are located at 1003 E. Whitaker Mill Road in the Capital City of Raleigh, North Carolina. We have been at our current location since 1994. Our staff is one of the most experienced anywhere and have the knowledge and experience to serve the needs of all drummers, from the beginner to the seasoned Professional.
We have won numerous awards, including a 1996 Retailing Excellence Award from a leading music industry trade magazine Music Inc. In November of 2002, Music Inc. honored us with a cover story about our operation.
While we offer an extensive selection of new gear, we also buy, sell and trade used gear. We stock used drums, cymbals, hardware, bags & cases, parts and accessories. We are also a top Ludwig parts dealer. If you are looking for something not listed on our web site, call us, we may have exactly what you need.
The 2112 School of Musical Arts currently offers private lessons, clinics, and workshops for all styles of music and all ages on drums, bass, guitar, keyboards and vocals.
All of our instructors are working professionals in the music industry and come from diverse performance and educational backgrounds. We carefully screen all potential instructors to ensure that only those truly committed to teaching are accepted. This ensures our students will not experience the frustration of having a different teacher every few months. Our staff can provide quality instruction for any need you may have, whether you are playing simply for enjoyment and stress relief, performing in a band of any kind, prepping for a college music program, recommitting to the study of an instrument as an adult, or just simply looking to pick up a few new musical ideas.
Our "Let's Rock" band program has been a runaway success here at 2112 Rock School. So popular in fact other schools around the state have done their best to copy it. The major difference is; our program is a year round program, offering an ongoing experience if participants so choose and "Let's Rock" bands perform on real stages, in front of real audiences not an in-house stage. In fact, our bands have performed at some of the largest outdoor festivals in the state.
Our bands have also had the opportunity to play at many major indoor and outdoor venues opening for some of the regions most famous artists including "Nantucket", "Band Of Oz", "Glassmoon", "Jesse Bolt", "Doc Holliday" and many others.
