Top 5 Essential Drums Accessories
The list of accessories for drummers can be quite long and exhausting (like a Ginger Baker drum solo) so here's just a few suggestions, to help you choosing your next accesssories.
That was easy - an obvious choice, really! You can't play whithout drumsticks. But there are many different types and sizes of them, to suit the most diverse playing styles. Usually you can choose between Nylon tip and Wood tip drumsticks, but the more daring drummers might like to try a glowing drumstick!
2) Stick Bag
Keeps all your drumstikcs together and safe in one place, and also serves to carry other little bits you might need, such as drum keys and spare parts. The Road Ready GSSP GigSkinz is a very good bag, but Dolphin offers many more models - see them here.
Playing drums is a tough job - don't make it tougher! A good drum stool (also known as "throne") is essential, and not a luxury. Especially when you spend hours and hours on practice! Dolphin has a great selection of drum stools, with prices starting as low as £22.99 - for the Performance Percussion PP2770 stool.
4) Cymbal Cleaner and Protector
Taking good care of your cymbals is essential, and professional drummers always keep theirs clean. The Paiste Cymbal Protector and the Paiste Cymbal Cleaner will make sure your cymbal looks as good as it sounds!
A good and reliable drum pedal is essential, so make sure you get one that will serve you well for a long time and help you to get the most out of your bass drum! View the range of Drum Pedals available at Dolphin.
