Best Brand of Drums

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Fernando

This kit is yet to be the cheapest to be found in the market specially in Asia, but it won't fail you for the sound. Their beginner kits are good sounding even the high end ones. The only down side is the hardware from the lower end kits including the free drum heads. Just replace it and everything is good to go.

Because this is my drums

This drum is cheap and for me one of the best starter set, heads is remo coated... just tune it and put o-ring... and upgrade the stock cymbals...

Great sounds... even for a starting kit with a remo heads...

22 Pro-Mark

The most durable sticks that you can find in the market

Pro Mark is awesome, I own their 5a drum sticks

Love them

23 CB Percussion

Good quality, Great Price

I have a1984 model cb set played it for years always lubed lugs and polished chrome on it,bought pearl maple awesome for gigs, but still have cb setup with aquarian heads as practice set sounds damn good worth every penny.

Great value for a great price.just put some new heads on it and enjoy playing! Can obrtaine the sound with more expencive kits.

24 Dixon

Gives these drums another decade and because of their quality and affordability they will be the top drum provider in the world. Then they will realise how big they are and sell their good products for higher products and everyone will hate them and they'll die.

The wood work on the kit is good, which helps in delivering good quality of sound

The Dixon drum sets are great. I love the sound quality better than any other brands that's why I recommend dixon drum set thank you.

It is awesome for the price and sound quality!

25 Truth

Have a look at what these guys can do in regards to not only sound but the presentation of the kit itself. Any design you can think of these guys can pull it off.

My cool dream sets punchy and low

Grate looks good wood good sound right way to go for metal bands

One of the best custom drum makers in the U.S.A. These drums look as good as they sound. Check them out on their website. truthdrums.com/

28 Percussion Plus

I've had mine for years. I love it

GREAT QUALITY AND GOOD PRICING

I had a percussion plus drumset for a long time they were great sounding drums of course my new pearl drumset sounds better but I got a close sound out of my percussion plus set so yeah if you want a percussion plus drumset I would recommend them if you don't want a name brand set

29 Dave's

Perfect sound nice to use and good - shakers4141

30 Sound Percussion

Inexpensive. BUT 5 lugs per head, and thin heads. Decent shells. Made in China like all of the best toys.

Sounds a bit tinny, but overall a good set

I own a SPL drum set, the quality is good and the price is amazing. A very good beginner set.

I love my spl set decent for the $ great starter set

31 C&C Custom Drums

I bought a clear acrylic from Mr Cardwell a few years back... The snare exploded after 3 gigs and the build of the kit looked like a 12 year olds first shop project. When I sent the snare back to him for some explanation and not only did he NOT return the hardware I purchased from said drum. He told ME that I must have been abusive to the drum. The man is of low quality just like his kits... Jake on the other hand at least "tried"

Awesome studio sound quality for the price. $ for $ BEST

C and C drums are real nice. They have 6 ply shells and every thing is custom.

Orri from sigur ros uses c&c sounds epic

33 Orange County Drums and Percussion

Drums are underestimated - can be played for all styles

Drums of choice for Chad Sexton of 311.

AWESOME! Travis barker uses ocdp and he is an awesome drummer! Its not the best but should at least be on the top 10

OCDP used to fabricate awesome drums. But when GC bought them and started to make them in China the sound quality took a noise dive. I own a custom OCDP set that I've used in recordings and touring for the last 14 years, they always produce great sound and have stood the test of time on the road.

34 Stagg

I think stagg is just as good as pearl and sounds as good I have them for a while and I don't plan on getting a new set.

Great price and durability

35 Basix

Great instument.. you just have to make a little improvment but it should be much batter than label such as Pearl or Yamaha.. Tama and DW are much batter but they are also more expensive...

36 Slingerland

Has Slingerland been forgotten? This was the kit to have in the 70s. Great sound and durability. Buddy Rich used these. An old reputable company. Top 5 for sure.

I played Slingerland in three rock groups from 1967 to 1972. They had great sound and the shells stood up well to hundreds of gigs. The chrome snare was the best.

Did not see them on the list. I know they were quality drums and were used in many jazz bands

So retro, listen @ Jay Bellerose on Raising sand (A. Rauss&R. Plant)

37 Taye

Makes some really great products, especially their snares. Personally, one of the best sounding snares I've heard.

They actually build many of the kits higher on the list!

I have a kit of the taye originals with the maple hoops, and they are a spectacular set designed by Ray Ayotte. I realize these are the big dollar kit, but the comments I get are always from people wanting to know more about them. The lacquer black sunburst finish is insane and the black chrome hardware is absurd. I've owned, dw, ludwig, pearl, premier, rogers kits over the years, and only the dw kit has spawned responses equal to these...

Got a Pro X Taye kit and it sounds great.

38 Gabriel

The best drums from Greece

Drums ONLY HANDMADES from Greece

High quality drums witha a huge variety of wood to choose from.And an extremely intresting tone and full sound whick makes Gabriel irresistable and appropiate for any genre of music!

39 Brady Drums

These are the best in the world bar none. Solid one piece shells made from Aussie wood. If the secret gets out the owner whose name is Brady will need a bigger shed. The real deal.

Great sounding high end drums hand made in Western Australia. Definitely worth the money.

Not high on this list because most people haven't heard them and they (like Dunnett) don't have the advertising dollars like the majors to make the masses seek them out. But one only has to listen once, to be converted. Drums made by a genius.
After all it is a well known fact that many famous drummers who are endorsed by the majors all have a Brady snare hidden in the closet.

40 Roland

My church has a electro drum set witch I love to use so Roland is what I would get for a electro drums
