Default Large drumshops in Europe?

Can you recommend any physical drumshops in Europe. I live in Sweden, but planning a trip through Europe this summer and would like to visit a store that has all the big brands in drumming to try some new gear, Gretsch, Yamaha, Ludwig, DW, Craviotto, Noble & Cooley, Istanbul, Zildjian etc..

Also are there any drumshows hosted in Europe like Chicago drumshow?

Havnīt decide exactly, but first Denmark, then Germany at least. And after the summer I will most likely travel to London for a visit.

Ah cool, well I can help you out with London.

Some good shops in Wembley Drum Centre, Bell Percussion, Footes (Wembley Drum Centre probably the biggest of those three and I dont know their rules over demoing gear) however my strong advice would be to visit London over the weekend of 12th-13th of November and come to The London Drum Show.

Fantastic 3 floor event full of drums of which you can play at times and clinics, plus there's a meet up of members on here every year. However it gets rather loud so bring some ear protection with you.

In Paris there's a great drum shop - http://www.baguetterie.fr/ - close to the Metro stop at Pigalle, and there are several other music stores (some with drums) just down the street and close-by.

In London, check out the shops on Denmark St, not a ton of drums but worth looking around. Hopefully there are some larger shops there. BTW, London's a great city, you can walk just about everywhere if you want, or very easy to get around on the tube.

Never been to their actual store but Thomann should have a lot of drums since their website has a massive range and they ship all over Europe.

Unfortunately I didn't get around to visiting Musicstore in Cologne when I was there over a year ago. Can't imagine revisiting the place as it seemed like we'd more or less seen everything there was to offer after a few days. There's too much of the rest world I haven't seen for that! No doubt I'll be back to Germany again though.

there is a reasonably sized drum floor in Hamburg, might be worth checking out.

If you make it as far down as Milan, there's a medium sized one (not exactly warehouse size) here called Percussion Villiage. They've usually got some nice Yamaha, Pearl, Ludwig and Sakae kits on show (as well as others), plus a decent cymbal room housing Zildjians, Paistes and some of the dark Turkish brands.

There's a cool little drum shop in Amsterdam but for the life of me I can remember the name it. It's near Anne Frank house.

I got a 23" China from there, the looks I got in the airport taking this thing back were interesting! I should have got the 14x6.5 COB Dynasonic which was in there. It was mint and I was stupid and didn't get it!

Someone mentioned all the cool places in London there's also Denmark Street in London as well. Failing that in the UK everywhere has turned into big stores like PMT.

Denmark Street in London doesn’t really cater for Drums. The shops there mostly cover Guitar and String Instruments.

Cool to check out due to it's history but don’t expect much drum stuff there, other than mostly heads and sticks. The last time I was there one small shop sold drums and the selection was very small indeed.
