Trying to talk drum gear with a guitar player is an exercise in futility. That's why Sweetwater is the drummers' choice for the latest kits, cymbals, and accessories: we speak drums here. All our Sales Engineers either are accomplished drummers themselves or sit within earshot of someone who is. We're always happy to help you find the right gear - drum kits, cymbals, racks, percussion, controllers, and virtual instruments - for your needs and budget.
Seasoned player? Know exactly what you want? Perfect. We'll get you the right price and make sure it's in your hands in time for your next session. Be sure to check out Sweetwater's selection of exclusive high-end kits and handpicked cymbal packs. Our house drummer Nick D'Virgilio (Tears for Fears, Spock's Beard) personally tests and reviews a good deal of our products. Watch his videos for a real-world approximation of how our drums and percussion will sound in your space, in a variety of uses.
New to the drum set? Then you'll want to have a look at our buying guides. These walk you through the basics of what to look for in an acoustic kit, electronic kit, and even drumsticks.
Do you want to play in a band? A traditional drum kit will give you the volume you need to compete with an electric guitar. Do you want to make beats? Then an electronic kit, sampler, or combination of a controller and virtual instrument will give you access to those coveted house kicks and savage breakbeats. If any of this sounds complicated, don't worry - we'll help you find your perfect setup and make sure you're happy with your purchase.
Of course, Sweetwater is more than just drums and cymbals. We're also the drummers' choice for percussion instruments. Need some wind chimes for your orchestra? A new cajon for your church band? Maybe just some percussion toys to spice up your kit? You'll find it all right here.
Sweetwater employees aren't just experts in drums - we know our production equipment as well. Just say the word, and your Sales Engineer will help you find the mics, preamps, outboard gear, and video equipment to translate your next performance into a product you can be proud of.
