- Christmas Gift Guide for Drummers
The Drummer Gift Guide
It's that time of year folks! Christmas is upon us and closing in with great speed, but there's no need to panic about getting last-minute gifts for the drummer in your life. That's because here at Andertons Music Co. we've got you covered!
In this guide we've collated all of the best drum-related recommendations in time for Christmas. From simple stocking fillers, to all-encompassing drum kit starter packs, we've done all of the thinking - allowing you to sit back, relax, and enjoy the festivities.
Top 10 Gifts for Drummers
Finding the right gift can be extremely difficult - especially when you are buying for someone as passionate about their hobby as a musician. We also know that sometimes what a musician really wants might be outside the realms of what you're willing to pay.
That's why we love recommending our gift vouchers for Christmas presents. They allow you to spend however much you want, while the person you're buying for can choose exactly what they want to get at a later date (or put it towards their next big purchase).
Our gift vouchers are sent digitally and are printer friendly, giving you something nice to present on Christmas day. They're available in a wide range of values from £10 to £500 and are redeemable both online and in store!
Gift Vouchers £10 - £500
Entry-Level Drum Kits
Here at Andertons Music Co. we stock a wide selection of starter kits that are perfect for aspiring drummers! From established brands like Tourtech, Roland and Pearl, you can feel assured that you're buying a great-quality instrument that will work as a brilliant entry-point to the instrument for your child, loved one or even yourself!
With electronic kits and acoustic kits available, you can choose whether you'd prefer a quieter, more modern kit, or a traditional, fully-fledged acoustic setup.
Tourtech Electronic Drum Kit Starter Packs
Tourtech electronic drum kits are ideal for beginners looking to kickstart their drumming journey. Fantastic value-for-money, these all-encompassing bundles come with all of the essential components and accessories that you need to start playing right out of the box!
