About Us

Founded in 2006 as a mail order business, Boston Drum Center opened a retail storefront adjacent to its warehouse in 2008.  Strong local interest and a growing music education program forced moves to larger locations in 2012 and again in 2016.

Stop by and play one of the world's largest collections of cymbals, from Agop to Zildjian!  We offer new, used, and vintage, all with our "satisfaction guaranteed" return policy.

We offer the area's largest selection of drums, from jazz to rock and affordable to high end.

Try out your selections on a professionally tuned and maintained drum kit in our recording area, where we produce our Video Vault (TM) demos.  Call ahead and we'll set you up in one of our private lesson rooms, subject to availability.

We carefully select and organize our range of parts and accessories.  If you need it, we have it!

If you can't make it to the shop, we'll ship your gear to your doorstep, even internationally, if the manufacturer allows it.  We hope to see or hear from you soon!
