Welcome to Century Drum Shop!

Established in 2013, Century Drum Shop is the place to go in Toronto for vintage and handmade percussion. We buy, sell, trade, consign, and repair old drums, cymbals and hardware and even offer drum lessons in the shop. While emphasis is towards vintage and antique drums and percussion, we also carry new hand made cymbals and other hand built percussion pieces. We are professional drummers with many years of playing and touring the world under our skirts, and it’s our pleasure to share the love and knowledge that we have accumulated in all our years of messing with this stuff.
