Cyber Monday is over for another year. We've seen some ridiculous deals on all different kinds of drums and accessories, and although the event is over, there are still some of those crazy deals still to be had. This is the place to be if you're still looking for a great drum bargain.

Best Cyber Monday drum deals 2021

Whether you're still in the market for an electronic drum set, or simply fancy a saving on drumsticks, these Cyber Monday deals are still available - and worth a look.

Guitar Center's big Cyber sale, where you can make huge savings on drum gear from Roland, Alesis, Tama, Gretsch and more until December 8 (opens in new tab), is one of best sales currently available.

Musician's Friend is also getting in on the action, slashing up to 50% off qualifying items (opens in new tab) until December 5th and Sweetwater is knocking an almighty 80% off select drum equipment (opens in new tab) in their Cyber Week sale, which goes on until December 7th.

When will the Cyber Monday deals land?

For 2021, the Cyber Monday drum deals will officially arrive on Monday November 29, just a few days after the Black Friday drum deals have ended. 

Deals are launched at all sorts of random times – sometimes in the middle of the night – so savvy shoppers will need to keep a close eye on their favourite retailers to ensure they grab the bargains they're after. 

Some Cyber Monday music deals may stick for a few days after Cyber Monday, while others may only be live for a matter of hours, or could be stock-limited. So, if you're looking for a bargain, you need to be ready to pull the trigger.

What Cyber Monday drum deals should I expect?

Over the next few months, we'll be watching the biggest drum retailers like a hawk for the best Cyber Monday drum deals. Last year we saw our Guitar Center Cyber Monday and Musician's Friend Cyber Monday going pretty nuts with drum bargains, and this year we're expecting to see some deals of equal measure on everything from cymbals and acoustic drum sets, to accessories, drumsticks, and more.

Cyber Monday is one of the sweetest opportunities to grab a great deal on some killer drum gear. Last year, we were blown away with the incredible savings, with Sweetwater knocking nearly $800 off the Sonor 2000 Series drum hardware pack (opens in new tab) and $300 off the Roland TD-07KV electronic drum set (opens in new tab). These were just two of the best deals we saw last year, and we'll be expecting some more deals of the same calibre this time round.

Between everyone on the team, we've spent a long old time covering the best Cyber Monday drum deals, so you can rest assured that we'll be showing you only the very best deals on your dream drum gear.

Cyber Monday drum deals: Discounts and coupons

Cyber Monday drum deals aren't always single products with hundreds knocked off the price. Some retailers opt for discounts that can be redeemed through a discount code - a code which can often be used on a wide range of products.

As an example, last year Sweetwater were offering up to 80% off a range of drum gear, as well as some guitars, amps and effects. Guitar Center and Musician's Friend were offering up to 15% off drum accessories, and Adorama offered tasty discounts on drumsticks bought in bulk. 

How to prepare for the Cyber Monday drum sales

The best way to prepare for the Cyber Monday drum deals is to get familiar with the products you're interested in buying. Do some thorough research - that way you'll know exactly what you want and you'll be able to jump on a great deal as soon as you spot it. 

Luckily, that's something we can help with, thanks to our huge bank of expert buying guides and reviews. They'll be able to arm you with everything you need to know in order to buy the very best drum gear for you at a killer price.

Cyber Monday isn't just a drum sale, though. There are bargains to be had on endless amounts of cool tech, including laptops for music production, iPads, iPhones, and more. We'll just be sticking to the drum deals for now. 

Cyber Monday drum deals: What happened last year?

Last year's Cyber Monday drum deals were frankly incredible, with electronic drum sets proving to be some of the biggest hitters. Guitar Center knocked $60 off the special edition black and red Alesis Nitro Mesh and Sweetwater slashed the price of the Roland TD-07KV down from $1,299.99 to $999.99.

If acoustic drums are more your thing, then you'll have loved saving $100 on a 5pc Ludwig Backbeat with hardware and cymbals, or the PDP New Yorker for a crazy $399 - a saving of $267.

We're expecting to see loads more drum deals like these to show their faces for Cyber Monday 2021, as well as deals on drum accessories, drumsticks, hardware and more. Here are our favourites from last year, to give you an idea of what you can expect from Cyber Monday 2021.
