The Drums in Chicago Tour explores the sites related to two of the largest drum manufacturers, Ludwig Drums and the now defunct Slingerland Drums. Ludwig was the manufacturer of the first practical bass drum pedal as well as making major innovations with the snare drum. Slingerland Drums helped create the tunable tom-tom with the help of legendary drummer, Gene Krupa, who was born and raised in Chicago.
