Stone Percussion Books LLC was formed in 2009 by the thirteen grandchildren of George Lawrence Stone. Previously the copyrights for these books had been managed by George B. Stone & Son, Inc., the original drum company begun by our great-grandfather, George Burt Stone, at the end of the nineteenth century. We family members are honored to be able to continue bringing you these percussion classics, making sure they are readily available to students, teachers, and professionals all over the world.
A special thanks for help and support goes to Dom Famularo, the fabulous drummer and teacher, who continues to help work with us as we bring these books to a twenty-first-century audience!
BEWARE of pirated editions! Profits from our books go directly to benefit members of the Stone family. Avoid free downloads or print editions that are illegally claimed by publishers such as Eigal Meirovich or BN Publishing. These editions are not authorized, and are sometimes smaller in size, incomplete and poorly printed. We are actively pursuing takedown notices and other legal actions against all unauthorized copies. Our thanks to the folks at DMCA Force for helping us with this.
