Best place to try out and purchase a snare drum

Looking for some more help. As I haven't brought any new drums for long time, can anyone recommend a good shop to go to and try out snare drums? Doesn't have to be local.

Well, obviously start off locally.....Bruce Millers usually has a few nice drums in stock, and I'd be surprised if you couldn't find something decent there. Although as a non-specialist drum shop, folk in the other departments tend to get a bit hacked off if you spend forever making a racket......

I've also shopped a couple of times at Drum Central in Edinburgh which is a cool shop with a decent selection. There's a Drum Central in Glasgow too.

Doubt you'll need to travel outwith Aberdeen though. Millers usually has some decent stock.

Dunno about the Glasgow shop, but the Edinburgh shop isn't exactly massive. If I were you, I'd phone to ask what they've got in stock before making a trip.

Been a few years since I was at Drum Central, but from memory, they stocked Pearl, Mapex, Premier and Yamaha....pretty sure they stock DW as well.
