History and profile
Slagwerkkrant's first issue was printed in 1985. Despite being printed exclusively in the Dutch language, the magazine has built up a solid reputation in the international drumming community. Many world-renowned drummers, such as Simon Phillips, Terry Bozzio and Virgil Donati, collaborate closely with the magazine's staff organizing drum events in The Netherlands on a regular basis.
The bi-monthly issues offer interviews with national and international drummers and percussionists, tests of drum and percussion products, articles on various drum and percussion related topics, reviews of drum events, CD and DVD reviews and more.
