Cyber Monday drum deals: Today's deal highlights
Ludwig Breakbeats by Questlove:
Was $599, now $499
A diminutive four-piece that's highly portable but certainly isn't weedy when you arrive at the venue of your choice. This is a tiny price, for a great kit.
Ludwig Element Evolution, inc Zildjian cymbals:
was $999, now $799
This 6-piece set, in smart Black Sparkle, comes with Zildjian I hats, crash and ride, so it's a great choice to get any drummer up and running in one go - especially at this tasty price.
$799.99, now $699.99
With mesh snare and tom pads, acoustic-style hi-hat mounting, Bluetooth connectivity, USB, and 25 excellent kit presets, the TD-07DMK is at the top of its range. Don't settle for a generic electronic set this Cyber Week, this is the best e-kit deal we've seen so far.
Free throne worth $224.99: with select Roland kits!
Drumming is only as comfortable as the throne you park your behind on, which is why we love this particular deal at Sweetwater. Buy one of four select Roland kits - TD-50KV2, TD-50K2, VAD506, or TD-27KV - and get a Roland Hydraulic saddle drum throne with a lush velour top, for nothing!
Roland e-kit bundles: Save up to $225
Bundles are a great way to get everything you need to start playing. In addition to the kit, bundles can include everything from sticks and a throne, to headphones, a personal monitor, an upgraded bass drum pedal, a drum rug, and more. This year, Roland's Sweetwater bundles are awesome, including $225 off this Roland TD-27KV bundle, which includes an additional PDX-100 pad and mount.
Yamaha e-kits: Get free lessons with any purchase
There are no Yamaha discounts this year, but if you purchase any kit in the Yamaha electronic drum set range from Sweetwater you will receive access to drum lessons via a free 3-month subscription to Yamaha's Melodics app. What better way to kickstart your playing journey.
Alesis Nitro Mesh SE:
$449, now $349
This special edition Alesis Nitro Mesh proves that it's possible for great e-kits to be affordable. You get tunable mesh heads here instead of cheap-feeling rubber, which feel closer to playing an acoustic drum set while keeping the noise down to a minimum. This already affordable e-kit had $100 off as part of the Musician's Friend Cyber Monday sale.
Alesis Command X Mesh e-kit:
$899, now $699
Alesis is one of the very best when it comes to Cyber Week e-kit deals - and this Command X with all-mesh heads is no exception to the rule - with Musician's Friend slashing $200 off the price for Cyber Week.
Simmons DA2108 Advanced Amp:
Simmons has been synonymous with electronic drums for decades now, and they're still going strong making competitively-priced e-kits and accessories. Take this versatile 100-watt practice amp, for example. Use it as standalone amp, or hook up two for fully immersive stereo sound. And right now it's available with a $60 discount.
Roland PM-100 80-watt monitor:
$369.99, now $269.99
Sure, headphones are great for quiet practice at home, but sometimes you've just got to be heard. That's where the portable yet powerful 2-channel personal monitor comes in. It dishes out 80 watts of power and you can have independent control of your drums and an independent sound source such as your smartphone.
