Great Gifts for Drummers

If your looking for a great gift for the drummer in your life then look no further. Here are 10 Great Gifts for Drummers. I have hand picked every gift  by using 2 simple questions …. ‘Is it really useful and would I want one ?’

Drummers are usually passionate about practicing and want the best sound from there drum kit. Having spent years performing as a Pro-Drummer I can honestly say that any of the gifts below I would loved to have had when I started out and are still essential to me to this date.

No 1 Precission Drum Tuner.

  • This is my all time favourite useful piece of kit I have in my stick bag and I would have been lost without one. Why ? If a drummer is going into a recording studio to record then they are probably going to put new heads on their drum kit. After playing for a little time the heads will slacken off (espicially the snare). This drum tuner will always take the drummer back to the original tuning they had on the snare. Ideal for keeping the drum tuning/sound consistent for the recording session.

No 2 Hi Hat Stand Sick Holder.

  • Another must have. Some where over time a drummer will definitely break a drum stick while they’re playing. This great little accessory lets you pick up a new stick without missing a bar. It can sit under the Hi Hat stand so if you break the stick in your left hand you can immediately pick another.
