For the safety of the drumming community please help each other to minimise the risk of infection. We recommend the use of a face covering whilst visiting. Remember, if you have either a high temperature or a new or continuous cough, please don’t come to the studios, stay at home. Please do notify us by email if you have fallen unwell after visiting the studios.
Fortunately there’s already minimal direct contact with others when drumming solo at the studio. If you arrive early for your session, please wait outside to avoid unnecessary social contact in the corridor areas. Also remember, if you’ve booked Studio 1 or Studio 3, your session time will start 15 minutes later e.g 6.15pm, 7.15pm etc. The staggered studio times will help reduce further the amount of social contact with drummers arriving at the studios. We’re also limiting bookings to 1 person per booking, unless drumming with another member of your household.
On top of the normal studio cleaning, we are regularly cleaning commonly touched “hotspots” in the communal areas such as access keypads, door handles etc. We have hand sanitiser at the entrance for use when entering & exiting – please use conservatively! Inside the drum rooms we are also supplying anti-viral disinfectant wipes to use when arriving to clean any equipment surfaces you come into contact with whilst drumming. We have also installed foot-operated bins to dispose of wipes and personal waste.
Areas to consider wiping: fan unit, snare skin, drum key, hihat clutch, snare strainer, wingnuts on stands, drum stool etc.
Please do not leave a trace when you leave!
Stay safe and happy drumming!
Thanks Nick @ London Drum Studio
