Electronic drum kits have improved hugely over the last few years and many want to take advantage of the convenience and the practicality, especially those who worry about their neighbours!

Havn’t thought about aspects such as frame robustness or sound quality? These are important! We’ve decided to make choosing the right drum kit easier by doing a comparison of four of the electronic drum kits we have on display in our store with a side-by-side feature quality comparison for the elements we believe are important.

All our electronic drums come with a free lesson (worth £25) and 6 month’s video shop support including callout if required within the Glasgow area.
