I'm ON a Mission:

I rescue unwanted used and vintage musical instruments, drums, cymbals, bass guitars, guitars and amps and get it into the hands of players that will rock it!

What started as an attempt to get my kid a used drum set while I was on a tight budget has become an awesome music gear resource for students, pros, instructors, touring bands and anyone else looking for cheap musical instruments. I keep my prices ridiculously low, making top-quality drum and music gear affordable for everyone.

I've got Unique Drum Kits, Cymbals, Percussion, Guitars & Amps

How do I maintain my unique inventory of used drums and cymbals?

With the help of the touring bands I work with, trained eyes all over the country are constantly on the lookout for sweet used drums, cymbals, and other gear that players need and want! The best gear makes it back to my LoDo (Lower Downtown) loft where my inventory of drum kits and cymbals is exciting and ever-changing and includes all the top brands and vintage drum gear you want.

THis is Not Denver's Typical Drum SHop

I do things differently than other Denver drum shops: 

My generous “test drive and swap” policy lets you audition used drums and cymbals on your terms. I offer lifetime buy-backs and trade-ups on everything I sell. My backline drum kit rental prices are the lowest in town and I offer free drum lessons through my network of teachers and pros. And because of the unique way in which I buy gear, nobody can touch my unbeatable prices, ever.

Awesome gear. Low dough.
