Welcome to The Drummer's Journal, a new, independent  drum magazine like no other. We are not particularly interested in product reviews or un-illuminating interviews, but in occurrences, encounters and observations all documented by some of the finest writers and drummers music has to offer.

We're a magazine born out of a brilliantly simple premise: that opinions, experiences and perspectives concerning the artistry of drumming are infinitely diverse, and that such diversity can fuel independent, informative and, above all, immersing journalism.

Independent. Online. Free.


The Drummer's Journal is a free, independent magazine. Should you wish to donate via Paypal, your contribution will go towards creating the next issue. To show our appreciation, we'll give you a credit in the magazine so everyone may bask in your generosity.

The Drummer’s Journal is, at last, a magazine that addresses drummers as thinking musicians.
