Win a Paiste cymbal and the chance to meet Ian Paice at LIMS!

Ian Paice, the drummer for over 40 years with classic rock band Deep Purple, has offered his support to the London International Music Show (LIMS). To coincide with the show a 22" Paiste 2002 ride cymbal (Ian´s favourite model) has been donated for auction by Thames Valley drum store DrumWright, working in partnership with the UK distributors for Paiste, Korg Mapex.

The prospective bidders can place ‘blind´ sealed bids on the Korg-Mapex stand at the show which, as you should know by now, runs at the Excel Centre in Docklands between 11 - 14 June (and is open to the public on 13 and 14 June).

The successful bidder will be offered the opportunity to meet Ian at a mutually agreed future date to be presented with the cymbal, and have a personal dedication written on it. Ian has also generously offered to throw in a couple of pairs of signed sticks and a signed DVD.

So, what are you waiting for? Get yourself to the Korg stand (F20) and place your bid!
