Just Drums,

I received my Ahead cases today, Saturday, and I need to tell you these are by far the best soft cases on the market, and I will be replacing my old ones soon. Thanks again. Just Drums is a favorite of mine and never mind the wait it is totally worth it. Thanks. Please keep up the incredible service and selection, what a great place to buy gear.

Thanks so much,

Just Drums,

I just wanted to take a few minutes to congratulate you on a great clinic. It was awesome to get to hear Gavin play and share his experiences. I also wanted to congratulate you on your six years in business.

My brother-in-law was looking for a set of drums for his niece last Christmas and I recommended he come to see you. You sold him a Ludwig drum set for his niece. It was a nice starter set and I have helped her with tuning and setting it up. Maybe next year she’ll be back for some cymbals.

Again, thanks for the clinic and I look forward to attending more in the future.

Dear Staff at Just Drums,

Just dropping you a note of thanks for a great transaction with my order for the Ludwig Accent Power Plus set. I received it on time, just as your site said, and have been enjoying it ever since. I absolutely love it.

You guys did a great job. I’m a repeat customer. Thanks and regards,

I received the Ahead Armor rolling hardware sled and I could not be more pleased. It is the perfect compliment to the other Ahead Armor cases that you recommended for my new Sonor Jungle kit. I will continue to give all of my business to you and justdrumsonline.com. I am truly amazed at the outstanding customer service you have given me. I will recommend you to everyone I know who is shopping for any drum related merchandise.

Thanks for the amazing customer service!

Ever since March of 2011 when I made my very first purchase from you, Just Drums has been my first choice for all of my drumming related needs. I don’t go anywhere else unless you don’t stock what I need, which is rare. I recommend Just Drums at the Drummerworld forums any chance I get. Again, thank you for recognizing me as a loyal customer as well as the great selection, service, and prices you provide.

Best regards,

A few weeks ago I ordered this drum kit from you. After having a number of let downs and B.S. from different companies that I bought things from on e-bay, which is kind of unusual but never the less frustrating as hell, I thought I was in for another problem! I was wrong! I jumped the gun! Chris Thomas and the folks at Just Drums provided everything they said they would.

I apologize for my mistrust and highly recommend this store and their staff, they did me a great deal and they’ll give you one, I’m sure. Chris, I would like you to display this e-mail in the store if you would.

Thanks again,

Hey, Shane! It’s Stephen with the 39th Army Band. I made this short video expressing my appreciation for you and your staff, as well as my satisfaction with my new Mapex drums. Do with it what you will… I just wanted to make our appreciation public. You can put it on your site or something. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d_7K-8zgU9E&feature=youtu.be

Hey Gretsch,

Just wanted to give you the heads up that my drums arrived and tell you a little bit about the great experience I had dealing with Shane Fowlkes from JustDrumsOnline.com.

I buy a lot of things on the internet although I didn’t want to buy my Gretsch USA Custom drum set on line! No how, No way, I wanted to speak face to face with an experienced sales person to guide me through this purchase. When my little local drum shop went under (during my purchase) I was faced with a 6 hour round trip to go to another drum store or deal with Guitar Center and neither of these sounded palatable to me. I gave in and searched the Gretsch site for an authorized USA Custom internet dealers and found this little gem called JustDrumsOnline.com.

Shane Fowlkes and his crew at JD have it going on for you. With these guys, any prospective USA Custom buyer can be assured that their order will get the care and attention to detail that you would expect from the best of Gretsch dealers. From concept to order to delivery, these guys got it right and their suggestions and advice were spot on! I couldn’t be happier with how this purchase went down.

The drums…. Wow! The tone and the character of the curly maple finish… They’re absolutely spectacular! The craftsmanship is what I would expect and beyond. Thank you for your attention to detail and thank you for building me an awesome set of drums that I will be playing for many years to come.

Thanks for the great set of drums and also thanks for sending me a Gretsch t shirt.

Sincerely,

Ron W (New Gretsch USA Custom Drums)

Enjoyed seeing your shop and buying stuff. I’ll certainly be telling all my drummer friends about you guys. Trip was worth the hassle. I thought the service and help were GREAT/ASOMBROSO.

Muchísimas gracias/thank you very much.

Hi, I received my cymbals today and I just wanted to thank you for honoring the “Old” price and being so easy to work with. This is the 2nd time I’ve ordered something from you and it definitely won’t be the last. I’ve dealt with quite a few different companies over the years and your prices and service are second to none.

Thanks,

Good afternoon!

Benjamin is thrilled to receive the TD-30 Kit. He has assembled the set and he has begun to practice and explore the many many features of this v-drum!! We feel very privileged to own this wonderful instrument.

Thank you for your service and we look forward to return to you for our future drumming needs and, meanwhile, we will point others to your “Five-Star” service!!

Please send our greetings to your outstanding staff!!

Hello, Just wanted to drop you a note to let you know I received the Taye Studio Birch kit in autumn red. I had an Aquarian Super Kick II laying around so I put that on the kick drum batter side. All I can say is “wow!”, I am in love with these drums! I can’t imagine being happier with a kit.

It’s so nice to work with a professional drum shop staffed by knowlegable drummers rather than receptionists who will just take your order without any discussion or input. I honestly would gladly pay you guys more then one of the big box stores just because I respect the service you bring to the table. The thing is, you have some of the best prices I’ve seen. I really can’t imagine why someone would shop one of the big box stores instead of Just Drums. Thanks again!

Best Regards,

DON’T BUY ANY DRUMS FROM ANYWHERE ELSE!!!

Last year I was looking into buying a drum kit to replace my old, warped and mismatched kit which I’d had for 25 years. Once I had decided on a Mapex Meridian kit, I started contacting dealers.

I was sorely disappointed with other dealers. I wanted the new kit with extra toms and a few new cymbals, a significant investment, but for some reason those dealers never returned my messages. Perhaps they thought that I wasn’t serious.

After some searching on the internet, I found Just Drums and sent off an e-mail. I heard back within 24 hours, and it was obvious that they knew I was serious and wanted my business, and that they were going to be very accomadating. They were more than courteous and more knowledgable of the products than I expected.

After we discussed what I was going to buy, they gave me a quote for the total price. Their quote was more than fair and was less than I expected.

They had my kit in stock, but the 2 additional toms I wanted had to be ordered. They told me how long it would take to get them from the factory – and true to their word, they arrived exactly when they said they would from the factory, almost to the day!

If you intend to purchase ANYTHING relative to percussion, and want a fair deal from a reputable and knowledgable seller, you need go no further than Just Drums. As for me, I’ll NEVER buy anything from anyone else again. These folks know what they’re talking about, and they are friendly and knowledgable about all of their products. They just can’t be beat. Thanks for helping me get that kit I’ve always wanted…

UPDATE! Got them and set them up at my studio. Looks awesome, sounds fantastic. Very much worth the wait. I appreciate all you’re help and shopping at Justdrumsonline was fantastic. Add this pic to my previous testimonial!

Thanks again,

D. Solomon (new Pearl Vision VBL kit)

Justdrumsonline.com was a fantastic way to order my drums. I had been contemplating my order for months and I finally pulled the trigger. Your web site is well organized and informative. A competitors web site with the same drums was lacking any information whatsoever, including the drum sizes!

I wanted to share my experience and hope you use this as a testimonial because I am 100% satisfied with my order. I did some research on where I wanted to purchase my drums and justdrumsonline was where I landed. I read other testimonials and that pretty much convinced me.

I bought a 20″ Pearl Vision VBL kit in clear birch. This set includes a 20″ kick, 10″ and 12″ toms and 14″ floor tom as well as the standard Pearl Sensitone 14″ snare. I also ordered an additional tom and 20″ kick drum which will arrive in about a month. This is my dream drum set. I am currently assembling them in my apartment and when the rest of my order arrives I will move it to my studio. I am so happy to finally have my dream drum set and justdrumsonline made it happen with ease.

The benefits of justdrumsonline were the ease of ordering, the quickness of the delivery, the availability of what I wanted and the price.

Again, thank you for helping make my dream drum set come true. You have a customer for life.

I’ve attached a preliminary photo of my drumset and I’ll send in more when my drums are complete. You’ll excuse the mess in the photo – again this is a temporary location.

Thank you for my new Pearl Vision VBL drums!

Man I love the drums I got from you guys. I did some business with greenbriar up there in Virginia and said if they treated me right they had my loyal business. Well they didnt and you guys did. Thank you so much for dealing with me calling for a tracking number often and doing everything you said you would. Now you have my loyal business and through word of mouth you will have my recommendation to all my drummer friends!

Hi All, I’ve been a long time Lonestar guy, but I decided to order a few pairs or sticks from you and was blown away by the responsiveness of the ordering system and the turnaround. Just wanted to let you know you’ve got a new customer, and thanks for sweating even the small orders. It made an impression. I’ll be making a push for any WGI or drum corps groups I teach to go through Just Drums.

Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays,

Just wanted to take a minute to say thanks for my recent order. I shopped around for weeks looking for the Roland TD-9K2-S V-Tour Series Electronic Drum Set that I purchased. I anticipated finding a deal by the time Black Friday came around. I stumbled onto your site via a google search looking for Roland retailers. The deal I got from your store was a minimum of $150 less than anywhere I checked. I placed my order on Thursday night (actually about 1:00am Friday morning central time) and was blown away to find the drums had arrived at my house on Monday afternoon and this was with free shipping via fed ex. It was a great ordering experience and the kit is everything I had hoped for. I periodically place orders online for my acoustic set so I will definitely be checking back whenever I need to order anything at all drum related.

Thanks again!

I have just received the toms and I wanted let you know how happy I am with them and our transaction. I was pleasantly surprised that FedEX delivered them on a Saturday. I get to use the new toms at my gig tonight! Also, I was surprised to see that tom mounts came included. I was under the impression that I had to buy them separately. This is my third time of ordering from your store and you guys provide great service at good prices. You have got a customer for life!

Thank you kindly,

I just wanted to thank you and your staff for helping me with my purchase of the Mapex Maples. You guys were very helpful in my final decision and very helpful on the price. I have taken them out twice, and have had nothing but complements on the look and the sound. I know in the near future I need to start changing heads to get that custom sound that I want, but for right now they sound great and they are fun to play. Thanks again man, and I hope to visit and do business again soon.

Just Drums was the only place that I could find that had the case in stock, it was the least expensive, and included free shipping. I ordered it around 3 pm on a Thursday; by 4 pm I had a shipping notification email with a tracking number. I received the package the very next day. I used it for a gig the day after that. It works great. And now I get a follow-up email from the owner of company on Labor Day? How could this buying experience have been any better? I can’t imagine how it could. Well done, sir…well done indeed. I’ll be checking your site first from now on.

Thanks so much for your help and patience answering my many questions. I’ll definitely refer you to anyone I know looking for drums or drum accessories. Drums arrived two days ago and it only took me 1.5 hours to set up (I guess that engineering degree paid off). My son loves them and hopefully will get many years enjoyment out of them.

If I had to come up with one complaint on my order, it would be that it got here TOO FAST! I ordered over the weekend and the entire kit was here Tuesday morning! I expected a longer processing/shipping time, so my room wasn’t ready yet! I love my new kit. It sounds great and the finish is absolutely gorgeous! I have already recommended your company to others and will continue to do so. Thanks again!
