The Ultimate Showroom

Drum Center of Portsmouth Snare Drum Room 

When you walk through our doors, you’ll understand what we mean. Our mission since day one has been to provide customers with the sense of excitement and community of a locally owned, independent drum store, along with a showroom experience that is second to none. Over the last decade, DCP has become a destination for drummers everywhere - with the finest selection of high-end snare drums, sets and cymbals in a single location. We also pay homage to the history of our instrument by reserving a section of our building as a museum - a collection of some of the most unique and interesting drums you'll find anywhere.
