If you have already started browsing percussion instrument brands and you know what instruments you want, but the range of available brands seems overwhelming, here are some tips to help you choose the best manufacturer:
- -Go with a specialized brand – some companies offer a wide range of products that encompass many types of percussion instruments, while others provide a narrow range of instruments. Pick a brand that is a specialist of the type of instrument that you want, that way you can benefit of their more specialized, dedicated expertise and experience;
- -Longevity – while emerging manufacturers can also produce instruments of the highest quality, choosing a company that has a longer track record is safer, especially for beginner drummers who are still in the process of discovery; Find drum kits, marimbas, and even an affordable singing bowl gong online at reputable dealers like My Music Supply.
- -Don’t look for the cheapest piece – building a great percussion instrument takes a lot of time, energy, knowledge and material and the process will influence the price of the instrument, too. You can probably find great instruments from emerging manufacturers available for a lower price, but if you are currently in the process of choosing your first instrument, it might be a good idea to buy it from a more established brand and start experimenting with new talent later.
