This wiki has been updated 5 times since it was first published in October of 2018. Aside from a pair of sticks and a complete willingness to annoy the neighbors, a throne is one of the most important things in a drummer's life. You'd look a little silly hitting the snare while standing, don't you think? The myriad options may seem overwhelming at first, but with our help, you're sure to make the right decision. Now, go make some noise, preferably in a soundproofed room. When users buy our independently chosen editorial selections, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

November 15, 2018:

Gibraltar, Roc-n-Soc, and Drum Workshop are three of the biggest names out there, hence their multiple appearances. Made sure to cover a wide range of price points, as well as models that can be used by beginner, intermediate, and advanced drummers.
