Sousa's Band Instruments on Display at MIM


The Musical Instrument Museum ("MIM") in Scottsdale, Arizona has a new exhibit titled, "All-American Bands" and featuring a display of instruments from the Sousa era.  Included is a drum that I donated to MIM, an 1890 inlaid rope-tension bass drum by Lyon & Healy, restoration by George Kubicek.
