Snare drums come in all shapes and sizes, and drummers will often try new ones out when experimenting with different sounds. Wood snare drums help achieve a warm, well-rounded tone, and are a popular choice for those seeking a new snare -- while a metal snare yields great metallic resonance and sharp attack.

Drummers of all experience levels need gear to maintain their kits and keep them performance-ready. An accurate, reliable drum tuner is invaluable on stage and in the studio. Between gigs, cymbal and shell cleaning polish will help maintain cymbal brilliance and keep shells shining.

Need more stocking stuffers? Throw in some Moongels or other types of stick-on drum dampeners -- they will help your drummer shape just the right tone.
