Marching Drums and Percussion


Whether you’re taking part in the Cape Minstrels “2de Nuwe Jaar” celebrations, watching a pipe band as they walk past, or watching an American style marching band, there is something awesome about matching bands.

If you’ve ever seen something like that and thought to yourself how to go about getting into it, we’ve got you covered. We not only have a wide range of marching drums and percussion, we also have a few in-store drum teachers who can get you going.

We stock a huge range of marching drums and percussion. In just one visit we can kit out your whole band; from the drummers to the brass players!

As an example of what we stock, check out the three Majestic drums below.
