The yearly Shure Drum Mastery competition is now underway for 2019, with prizes including a trip to London, a two day workshop in Metropolis Studios and USD $5000 worth of Shure gear.
In recognition of the heroes of rhythm out there who make the rest of the band sound good, Shure are yet again celebrating drummers with the Drum Mastery 2019 competition. This year’s competition stands to be the best yet with an array of massive prizes up for grabs.
What is the Shure Drum Mastery Competition?
The team at Shure want to recognise the talented drummers and percussionists out there, so are now calling on musicians from 44 countries* around the globe to enter the Drum Mastery 2019 – The Shure Drum Contest. This competition invites drummers to record their best solo performance video in the 'Drum Mastery' and upload to the Shure competition website.
To enter, submit your entry by April 15, 2019. All you have to do is make sure it gets at least 50 votes online by May 6, 2019 and it will be eligible for judging. The video receiving the most votes overall (Fan Favorite) will earn the wild card spot in the final round of the contest, too!
After the voting period closes, Shure will select one drummer from each country who will also qualify for the final round of the contest. All country winners and the Fan Favorite will receive a prize package consisting of a Shure MV88+ Video Kit and Shure SE215 Sound Isolating Bluetooth Earphones.

A team of all-star judges will then select the top three finishers from the 44 country winners and the Fan Favourite in early July 2019.
One lucky winner will receive a trip to London, a two day workshop in Metropolis Studios and USD $5000 worth of Shure gear. Not to mention USD $3000 and $1000 worth of Shure Gear for 2nd and 3rd place respectively.
