Customer Kudos "zZounds is awesome, order 1 day, it’s on my door step the next, couldn’t ask for better service. I will not shop anywhere else for music instruments. If I see something online I like, I look at reviews and videos for weeks, and go to zZounds' website and order it. Play As You Pay is the best thing I have ever got myself into. Thanks again. I will continue to be a loyal customer." - customer on July 23, 2019
Drum Kits: zZounds' Buying Guide

Drum Kits: zZounds' Buying Guide

Music as we know it was revolutionized when modern drum kits came about in the early 20th century. Combining several percussion components like tom toms, snare drums, cymbals, and bass drums, the drum kit allowed for a single person to control the backbone of an ensemble's sound instead of an entire percussion section. Although the modern drum kit has streamlined playing live percussion in a band setting, finding the right kit can be a daunting task for today's drummers. From entry-level kits to studio darlings, here are some of the best drum kits you can find at zZounds!

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as you Pay® installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as you Pay® plans.
