From the battlefield to the bandstand, nothing stirs the soul like the driving rhythm of an acoustic drum. Whatever's missing from your setup - snare drums to full kits - Sweetwater is the place to make your next drum purchase, not only because we carry the hottest drum brands and guarantee the best prices on the Web, but also because our staff of drummers is committed to helping you find the right gear for the sound you're after.
Be sure to reference our Acoustic Drums Buying Guide, or simply reach out to one of our Sales Engineers. Like you, Sweetwater loves talking drums. We'll help steer you in the right direction.
Sweetwater's acoustic drum sets are available in two major flavors: shell packs, which are shells and heads only (with or without a snare drum), and full kits, which also include stands, additional hardware, and sometimes cymbals. If you've already got cymbals and hardware you trust, a shell pack is a great way to upgrade your drums without letting your old gear go to waste.
The snare is the heart of any drum kit, and an important part of any concert or marching ensemble. Therefore, it pays to make sure the snare you play inspires your best performances. Looking for a fat tone? Deep, large-diameter shells are the way to go. For something crisp and quick, go small.
If you've already got an acoustic drum kit and just want to grow it out, Sweetwater's add-on drums are a splendid option. Need more toms? A second kick drum? We have drums to match your kit from all the major players: DW, Pearl, Ludwig, and more. Our add-on drum packs are an economical way to build your kit as you go.
