Concert Bass Drums for Sale on Reverb

If you're an orchestral percussionist looking to buy, replace, or upgrade your concert bass drum, look no further. Here on Reverb, you'll find a wide selection of both new and used concert bass drums available now in a variety of sizes and on a sliding scale of price points.

Tuning and Sizing

The bass drum—whether a concert bass drum, marching band bass drum, or kick bass drum—is always the lowest and deepest member of the drum family and can be thought of as a non-pitched extension of the timpani. It should always sound lower than any other instrument, which can be accomplished by making sure you tune its resonant head (bottom) slightly higher than its batter head (the top, striking head).

The best size of bass drum for you will depend on your own size. You must choose a bass drum that will be proportionally appropriate for the person playing it. If you're shopping for a new player, like a child or student, check out something in he 28-inch range. Meanwhile, if you're shopping for a larger player or an adult, you would be better off in the 32- to 36-inch range.
