Christmas is fast approaching, and it doesn’t always end up being the most wonderful time of the year! If they haven’t already, your family and friends are probably getting ready to ask you what you want for Christmas, and this can turn out to be stressful for you and for them if you’re not prepared!
We’ve got some great things in store for our first Christmas at WorshipDrummer.ca, but to start I thought it would be a great help to all drummers to share 20 awesome gift ideas that will inspire the drummer in you!
Feel free to share this post, retweet it, like it on facebook, etc… using the social bar on the left.
1. Boss DB90 Dr. Beat Metronome ($142)
This is #1 on our list because you’ll suck as a drummer if you can’t keep time!
2. Mono Cases M80 Stick Bag – ($70)
It’s waterproof functional and stylish. What more could you ask for!
3. Mono M80 Cymbal Bag – ($140)
If you already have the stick bag, there’s no doubt you’ll be asking for the cymbal bag this Christmas!
4. Modern Drummer Magazine Subscription – ($30/12 issues)
With everything about drums, drummers, and drumming, it’s the world’s most widely read drum magazine.
5. Evans MINEMAD Tom and Snare Damping ($6/6pk)
Perfect for getting rid of unwanted overtones without compromising the actual tone and feel of your snare and toms.
Ear protection is often overlooked, but is actually crucial for a drummer playing in enclosed/tight spaces (bedroom, drum cage, garage, etc..)
7. Wooden Drumstick Pencil ($4)
Great for the kid in every drummer! Never miss a beat that passes through your head.
8. Electronic Drum kit T-shirt ($30)
No Joke! Tap the drums on this shirt and they actually play through the embedded speaker and all drums and cymbals on the shirt are playable.
9. Vater Drink Holder ($15)
A cool way to store your drink to ensure you stay hydrated as you play.
10. Fred & Friends Beat It Chopsticks Set ($10)
Can you say dinner drum circle!?!
11. ITALMODERN Glass Drum Table ($118)
Very elegant and rugged, drummer-style, all at the same time.
12. Drumdial Drum Tuner ($60)
The perfect assistant to help you tune your kit.
13. Fred Mix Stix Spoons ($8)
Maybe a better gift for the cook in your life, but as a drummer this is perfect to stir your Kraft Dinner
14. SoundCue App ($15)
A perfect and professional solution for live track playback on the iPad.
15. Aquarian Drumheads Cymbal Spring Cymbal Accessory ($9+)
16. Drum Grooves For Worship – DVD (
$25) ON SALE FOR $10
Carl Albrecht (Paul Baloche) is the epitome of who and what a pro worshipdrummer is. In this DVD he tackles the all important drum grooves for worship.
17. Kickport Soundport for Bass Drum ($40)
The Kickport is making big noise with claims that it will make your bass drum sound obese (that’s a good thing for bass drums ).
18. Evans Torque Drum Key ($17)
Every drummer needs a drum key. Period. But with the built-in torque-handle it helps you get the desired tension while helping to attain tuning accuracy. #FTW
19.The Big Gig by Zoro ($14)
The Big Gig provides a template for success by covering the vocational, personal, and spiritual aspects of a musician’s life all from the perspective of a pro worshipdrummer, Zoro (YES! He’s a Christian and an awesome drummer).
20. Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson ($29)
An ordinary guy [NOT!] who made a dent in the universe through his innovative ideas while at Apple. Apple, with Jobs at the forefront, has changed the way everyone, including drummers, interacts with technology and with each other. Definitely on my Christmas list!
