BEST IN DRUMS 2019: The best new drum kit is perhaps the most hard-won of our gear awards. Those on the shortlist represent excellent combinations of build quality, value, sound and playability.
It doesn’t matter if a kit is aimed at beginner, intermediate or pro drummers, drum companies invest untold time, experience and resources into making sure drummers get the very best gear for their money.
