DW Design Series Drums

Recommended Gear: My tour-tested picks for drummers

I’ve spent tons of hours researching, playing, using, and testing the best drumming gear on the market. These products are tour-ready and can be recommended without hesitation.

Keep in mind that some of these products are not necessarily the highest-end items, rather the best bang-for-your-buck, if you will. My goal on this page is to recommend great, quality gear while keeping budgets in mind. This is the gear I personally use.
