Best Musical Instrument Store

Drum Headquarters

From kicks, crashes, rides and snares to djembes, congas and dumbeks, Drum Headquarters more than lives up to its name. With an extensive inventory, competitive prices, a knowledgeable and experienced staff, and local ownership—founder Rob Birenbaum sold out to longtime manager Jim Uding last year—the place comes darned close to the Platonic ideal of a music store. Beginners can get lessons from local pros, intermediate players can eyeball fancy pro-quality drum sets and fantasize about upgrading, and working musicians can get the parts, accessories and service they need to make it through their next gig. After 25 years in business, Drum Headquarters remains a percussive paradise that clearly outclasses the chain-store competition.
