Explore different cultures through world beat percussion instruments. The djembe is an African drum played with your bare hands and can be played on the ground or standing up when a strap is attached. Or maybe bongos are more your thing?

A drum throne gives you a comfortable place to sit as your rock out behind your kit. Look for one that’s lightweight and easily adjustable.
