Twin Cities Drum Collective (TCDC) is a retail drum store and a custom drum manufacturer located in South Saint Paul, MN (20 minutes from Minneapolis; 10 minutes from St. Paul).

TCDC is Minnesota’s premier full-service drum shop that specializes in high-end new and vintage drums and drumsets by well-known drum companies such as Drum Workshop (DW), Gretsch, Ludwig, and PDP among others.  We also have a rotating selection of used drums and cymbals…you never know what you’ll find when you swing in!

Supplementing traditional retail, Twin Cities Drum Collective is unique in that we manufacture our own custom drums.  Our three signature custom drum lines are 651 Drums, Twin Cities Drum Company, and Modern Vintage Drums. These drums feature a commitment to detail and excellence that is rarely found from major drumset manufacturers, and we pride ourselves on having our MN customers involved in every step of the process!  Beyond our custom drum brands, TCDC is committed to featuring custom drums from other builders across Minnesota and the country.

In addition to drums you might only find with us, the Collective 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 drums you might only find with us, the Collective carries select cymbals, hardware, and accessories.  Cymbal brands we carry include Bosphorus, Dream, Meinl, Paiste, Sabian, and Zildjian, and we have a large in-store selection of sticks by Los Cabos, Vater, and Vic Firth and heads by Aquarian and Remo (and yes, we can order your preferred stick brand and Evans heads, so if you need it, just let us know!).  We also feature special accessory brands like Tackle Instruments, Low Boy Beaters, and Ninja Kick Beaters.

But TCDC is not just about products and sales.  We are your source for drum service and expertise you cannot find at Big-Box Stores or the Internet.  We provide a full service repair shop to recondition worn-out or damaged drums, including bearing edge reconditioning to make your old or lower line drums sing like new high-end drumsets!

Last, TCDC provides lessons and hosts grill-outs and social events on our patio, and promotes drum clinics in our lot and at select venues in St. Paul and Minneapolis.  

Stop by to talk drums with one of our pro staff, to hang, and to see and try out the best in drums, cymbals, and accessories that MN has to offer.

At Twin Cities Drum Collective, everything we do is for drummers, by drummers!
