While electronic drums and drum samples are becoming more and more popular for home recording purposes, there’s still no substitute for acoustic drum kits when it comes to playing live. From hard rock to jazz, almost all drummers prefer a real kit when they’re performing on stage. Better dynamics, more tuning options and better value for money are just a few of the reasons that acoustic drum kits are not likely to go out of fashion any time soon. As for looks, well, there’s really nothing like a full acoustic kit to set the tone for a killer set. Browse our selection over a coffee and feel free to get in touch if you need any help.

Is it a good idea to buy acoustic drum kits online?

If you’ve just started to play and you don’t know very much about acoustic drum kits, we’d suggest doing a little research first and maybe talking to one of our experts via Live Chat or over the phone. But if you already know exactly what you want, don’t let us hold you up – just add what you want to your cart, place your order and we’ll process it right away. In either case, the biggest advantage of buying acoustic drum kits online from us is that you get access to a much larger selection than you’re likely to find in a local store (unless you live near one of our stores!), at much better prices.
