Porto, Portugal (PressExposure) June 07, 2008 -- All music players, especially percussion instrument enthusiasts, now have a reason to cheer up. There is a new website on the web that will make them smile... for starters.
Enter the recently-launched online shop called drums-outlet.com. It is a one stop shop for all drums players and enthusiasts - beginners and pros alike. Mind you, this is not yet another drums shop; there are already many of those around with highly attractive and competitive prices and offers. This one focuses almost exclusively on used gear and there are plenty of bargains to choose from the more than 20.000 products available for sale.
Playing drums is, unfortunately, a quite expensive hobby, especially if you get excited and keep adding some extra drums and cymbals to your standard drum set over time. A standard beginners' set in itself represents a considerable investment, so it is always good to know that there are cheaper alternatives.
On to the shop itself. Once you enter the website, the color scheme is the first thing to grab attention. Black and white are the predominant colors here, the only other color being a very 70's-like orange which adds an additional retro-mood to the whole website and constitutes a pleasant variation from those flashy and busy websites.
The minimalist design turns all attentions to the store category menu, where the product range is abundant, containing a wide selection of of drums, cymbals, accessories and instruction books. All major brands are represented, such as Tama, Pearl, Paiste, Zildjian, Sonor, Premier, Yamaha and others.
Conveniently (for both store owner and buyer), drums-outlet.com has teamed up with eBay, the world's largest auction network; therefore, all products on sale are presented in the form of auctions, and sales themselves are processed through eBay. The main advantage of buying at drums-outlet.com (instead of going directly to eBay) is that this store makes it very simple for you to find what you are looking for, as you do not have to browse through endless directory trees.
The objective of this newcomer does not seem to be conflicting with other already well-established online drums shops, as the main focus of this niche business is the sale of used drums gear. If you're into drums, a visit to this website will be worth it.
