Hi I would like to start off with wishing you the best in this holiday season. Hope all have a safe and happy holiday. This is really the musicians holiday christmas music and trying to present your talents in a happy time of the year.So my friends lets get some idea’s on what can my drummer need or want.
Drummers go through a lot of drum sticks. It is there number one expense. Depending on often and how long they play will be a factor on how may pairs of drum sticks they use in a year. You can buy single pairs and they start at around seven US dollars. I have written a post on this subject. Click here to read it.
What is stick wrap? It is tape you wrap around your sticks for better grip. You can easily loose your grip on sticks because you are holding them lightly at times when performing. So one way to help you keep a hand on the stick is to use stick wrap. You simply start at about mid body and wind it evenly around the stick. You should end up at the butt of stick. There are many styles to choose from.
This is a fun and easy instrument to use. Anyone can play it all you have to do is hit or shake it in time with the music. But be warned over use while a band is performing can distract for the performance. As with most things in life over use is not recommended. You can find tambourine’s for as little as $7.95 US dolars.
These you can find in many colors sizes and are great stocking stuffers. I have given these in the past all ages enjoy them. from toddler to adults. We just like the sound and how easy they are to use again just stay with the beat and have fun.
This is an instrument that can open new doors for playing with others in a acoustic setting. For example christmas day some of your guitarists friends show up and decide they are going to pull out their acoustic guitars now you can join in with out being to loud. If the drummer in your life wants to explore the world of percussion instruments here is a good way to start
There are many different style and sizes you can find. The one I gave Ro0ckervera five years ago for christmas was the real feel practice pad. She played it all the time in the front room kitchen bedroom car where ever she went she would take it. Countless hours she spent using it. Very nice pad double sided she recommends this one because no rim a action on pad is very good. This is great for beginners to those like Rockervera just can’t help themselves on playing all the time anytime.
Well I hope this post helps you with ideas of what to get your drummer for christmas. If you need more suggestions please leave a comment I will be more than happy to help you. Have a great day!
