I’d like to tell you about ways to save money on your drum equipment.
As a professional drummer, I look for the three C’s in a drum store: competitive prices, customer service, and consistency. Having visited most of the drum stores in the United States, I believe that Guitar Center is the absolute best place to purchase drum equipment. Guitar Center has locations throughout the United States and I always find what I am looking for very quickly.
Here are some tips that are guaranteed to save you money on your drum equipment:
- Shop at Guitar Center. As I mentioned before, Guitar Center is the largest musical instrument store in the world. Their buying power allows them to offer unbeatable prices. Best of all, their customer service is excellent–always friendly and professional.
- Pay No Sales Tax by purching through Musician’s Friend, unless you are shipping your order to Utah, Indiana, Missouri, or Washington State. Interestingly, Musician’s Friend is owned by Guitar Center. On the other hand, you will have to pay sales tax at Guitar Center. In fact Musicians Friend has the largest musical instrument catalog in the world.
- Save Money with Musician’s Friend deals, discounts, promotional codes, coupons, and sales. Visit the Funky Music Store for brand new Musician’s Friend coupons every day. If you prefer not to shop online or would rather see a product before purchasing it, click here for a list of Guitar Center locations.
To save yourself time, be sure to call and ask if an item is in stock before you go to the store.
In addition, salespeople are sometimes open to negotiating price.
