Acoustic Drums

At one time or another, every kid around the world has begged his or her parents for a set of drums.

There is something about the rat-a-tap-tap of the drum that is both timeless and hypnotic. With their infectious, almost tribal rhythm, th...

y call out to drummers everywhere.

Whether it's simply the drumming of fingers on a table top or a full out jam session kicked out on a set of Yamaha drums with a cherry set of sticks and Zildjian cymbals, drummers can't get enough of the gear.

5 Keys To Choosing The Best Drum For You

If you're a drummer and are looking to style out your kit with some new gear, be sure to take these suggestions from pro drummers around the world to heart. Keep the drummer in you beating loud and proud.

If you're tired of drumming on old coffee cans, it's time to get geared up with your choice selection of must have drumming gear.

Start with the Stick

Many drummers find that a set of hand-picked sticks makes all the difference in the world. When shopping for your drum, be sure to bang around with a variety of sticks to find the ones with the best feel for you.

Assess Your Environment

If you live in a small space and have sound-sensitive neighbors, a drum machine or electronic kit might be best for you. With the ability to moderate the volume, you're sure to keep your neighbors happier than if you were drumming it out on a full set.

Kick Your Kit

When you are testing drum kits, be sure to give them a real spin. Drumming is not for the feint of heart and your kit of choice should be able to withstand the musical thumping. Give those sets a ride for their lives, cymbals, snares, and all.

Brand is Best

Until you are more experienced, it is best to do your drumming on a brand name drum. Yamaha, Tama, Pearl, Ludwig, Mapex, Gretsch, and Premier are all drummer favorites.

Listen to Drummers

If you want to pick the best drum, ask your fellow drummers for their advice as to which sets and kits square up the best.

If you don't want to work, but you do want to bang on your drum all day, get drumming today on a kit of your choice and never, ever again go without the bass line in your life.

Below are our preferred suppliers of drums. Have a look at their stores as they have everything a drummer needs and at the right price.
