BEST IN DRUMS 2020: The best new drum kit is perhaps the most hard-fought of our drum 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. 

Tell us which of the kits below you feel best represents the culmination of their efforts and proved a hit with you this year – and help us crown a 2020 champion.
