Ellis Drum Company is a retail drum shop and a custom drum manufacturer located in South Saint Paul, Minnesota (20 minutes from Minneapolis; 10 minutes from St. Paul).

At Ellis, we provide a full-service drum shop that specializes in high end new and vintage drums by both well-known and custom drum companies.

We also feature Tim Ellis’ signature brand, Ellis Drums, which are played by a Who’s Who of professional drummers in the Midwest and beyond. 

Ellis Drums are played by jazz greats Dave King and Phil Hey.

In addition to drums you might only find with us, Ellis carries select cymbals, hardware, and accessories. If you need it, we most likely carry it or can order it, so get off the internet and get to our brick and mortar store!

In addition to sales, Ellis provides lessons and hosts drum clinics and drummer “hang” events on our patio. Stop by to talk drums with Tim or one of our pro staff, to hang, and to see and try out the best in drums, cymbals, and accessories.
