TOM TOM #3: $30/four issue sub, 8” x 10 ½” glossy, 42 pgs.

One day, there won’t have to be a magazine for female drummers. I have enough friends who play music and are girls who say they aren’t taken seriously, and they are not whiners. But until that day, there is Tom Tom. It celebrates chicks with sticks who play all kinds of music, from Razorcake darling Jen Shag to cover girl Cindy Black, who played with Lenny Kravitz for eleven years. There is a lot of stuff to interest non-musicians and plenty of technical articles, as well as a look at small manufacturer District Drum Co. and industry giant Zildjian. The fashion content, which was a complaint with the previous issue, is almost nonexistent. (tomtommag.com)
