Drumming Accessories Every Drummer Needs
Finding the right gift to support your favorite drummer doesn’t have to be too difficult! In fact, there are a ton of awesome drumming accessories to help their playing go to the next level.
Check out these awesome drumming accessories…
1. Flexzion Drumstick Bag
The Flexzion drumstick bag is one of the best ones on the market. Drummers are known for being a little… chaotic, so getting them a durable stick bag to hold their most important tool is a great idea this holiday season. It’s a great option and good drum stick holder.
2. Vic Firth Stick Caddy
A stick caddy is a useful gift and great gift idea for drummers to help stop the constant wonder of where their drumsticks are. It clips to the drum and provides the perfect holder to make sure they can keep track of their sticks.
It is a great addition to a drum set so you can hold extra drum sticks in case you drop them while recording or at live performances.
3. Electronic Kit
This electronic drum set is perfect for anyone always itching to practice. Not only does it roll up for easy storage and make different sounds, but it comes with headphones so they don’t have to distract the entire neighborhood. It even has a bass drum!Whether they are going on a road trip, practicing in their room or at a picnic table at the park, your favorite drummer can keep up with practice.
4. Silent Practice Drum Pad
As the mom of a drummer, I am here to tell you about the essential drum pads and why it is a great choice, and the perfect gift for drummers.
Simply lay the drum practice pad over the drum head and it will muffle the sound that the drum makes. What does this mean? It means that your drummer can practice all day and all night without the neighbors (or you!) complaining.
5. Drumstick Pencils Set
This drumstick pencil set is so cute, how could it not be added to the gift for drummers list?
Complete with 2 pencils in the shape of drumsticks, your drummer can get their work done before they start practicing again. This is a good choice for a birthday gift for your drummer friend, or a great stocking stuffer at an affordable price.
6. Light Up Drumsticks
Light up drumsticks are a fun way to celebrate the drummer in your life. Not only do they come in just about any color, but they are a fun way to highlight the drummer during a concert.
Make sure to get the right sizes for your little drummers hands. This LED light up pair of sticks will get any drummer excited to start playing this next year!
