David Frangioni talks about his Drum Experience Center. This is a very cool thing that David is doing! Drums are the heartbeat of the Foundation and the passion of its founder David Frangioni along with its board of directors. Hit the Dec drum experience center was established in 2016 with pieces donated from the private collection of Mr. Frangioni as well as other donors.
The center is actively acquiring iconic and historically significant drum kits, percussion and other musical instruments and items. Thematic exhibits are planned using the center’s collection pieces as well as those on loan from museums and private parties.
Hit the DEC has a loan program in place to allow its pieces to be loaned to other museums around the world. It endeavors to partner with the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Foundation among others. Hit the DEC features a library, bookshop, internship program, ongoing lecture series, seminars and webinars with a drum shop hosted by vintage drum expert Steve Maxwell! Hit the DEC inspires children and people of all ages at a time when they need it most.
