The Shop

Founded by Donn Bennett over 20 years ago, Donn Bennett Drum Studio serves the Pacific Northwest and beyond under current ownership of Rudy Simone. Some shop highlights include an ever-rotating demo floor of over a dozen drum sets, full cymbal room, percussion section, and Donn’s Drum Vault above. The Drum Vault is the largest collection of historic and celebrity drum sets in the world, all right here in our shop. See Buddy Rich’s drums while picking out a set for yourself, or grab some sticks if that’s all you need.

The Studio

Originally a studio for drum lessons, Donn Bennett Drum Studio retains seven teaching rooms each equipped with two drum sets for private lessons and practice space. Employing some of the best instructors in the region, we’re pleased to offer high caliber lessons for all ages and skill levels.

We are proud to offer a wide array of cymbals from Zildjian, Sabian, Meinl, Istanbul Agop, and others. Not only do we price match, but our cymbals are all priced below online retailers. We also have an always-changing supply of used cymbals for great prices, so give us a call or come in to find what you’re looking for.


In addition to drums, cymbals, and hardware, we also carry a great selection of percussion equipment. Cajons, shakers, tambourines, and pretty much anything that jingles or jangles can be found in shop.


Our workshop is equipped to handle almost any sort of restoration, repair, or maintenance on new and vintage drums. We also carry a vast selection of new and vintage parts. So if you need help repairing your drums, or just want them tuned by a pro, we can help.
