Buying an electronic drum kit, whether you’re just starting to play or you’re a seasoned professional, should be a fun, exciting, and informative experience. That’s why we focus on making sure all of our instruments are set up and ready to go, plugged into the best quality amplification (or headphones, if you prefer a bit of privacy), and friendly advice is on hand every step of the way.
We’re also lucky enough to have a Roland Planet – one of only a few specialist centres in the UK – situated at Red Dog Music. Our resident Roland Guru, Dave Gardner, is a highly trained on every Roland product around, and is a veritable font of V-Drum knowledge!
Bigger on the inside
Our store is often compared to the Tardis by new customers: walk through the unassuming front door at the castle end of the Grassmarket and you will be gobsmacked by the amount of space we have. What this means for you is that there’s enough room for us to have all of the top V-Drum kits set up and ready to play at all times, and you won’t find yourself inadvertently attacking other customers with your drum sticks when performing a particularly extravagant fill.
Are trends electric?
Although we stock a range of acoustic hand (and foot!) percussion such as cajons, bongos, and tambourines, we don’t stock acoustic drum kits. Why not? Because we believe electronic drum kits have now got to a stage where they sound as good as or better than acoustic kits but can do a lot more. We also live in a city known for its tall tenement buildings, so being able to play in near silence using headphones is a major plus point!
We price match
Red Dog Music is a young, dynamic company, forged in the depths of the ‘credit crunch’; we know how important price is when deciding who you will buy from. That’s why we make no secret of the fact that we price match other stores in Edinburgh, elsewhere in the UK, the EU, and online. We’ll also match any “bundle” deals; just let us know what you’ve seen and where. Whenever possible, we’ll even go one step further and beat our competitors by up to 5% to make sure your money goes as far as it possibly can. If you’ve seen a better deal elsewhere, just tell us and we’ll work our magic to make sure you get the best price.
By musicians, for musicians
At Red Dog Music, we don’t have any strange men in suits telling us what to wear, what to say, and what to sell. We’re just a bunch of passionate musicians – guitarists, bass players, singers, keyboard players, record producers, drummers, and DJs – doing what we love and lending our years of expertise to helping you find your perfect instrument.
We are award-winningly good
Not wanting to blow our own trumpet, but we’ve won several industry awards for our exceptional level of customer satisfaction and quality of service. Because we’re an exciting, independent company, we aren’t stuck in our ways and are always open to new ideas. This helps us to offer the unparalleled experience you’ll receive from Red Dog Music when looking for electronic drum kits in Edinburgh.
