If you want to be an awesome drummer, you need awesome equipment, but let’s face it, good drums aren’t cheap. If you’ve done a good job building your credit, you might be able to score the perfect set by getting a credit card with your local music store. But what if your credit is bad or not yet established? A lot of people just bite the bullet and settle for cheap gear that sounds cheap and wears out quickly.

There’s actually a way better option out there though for everyone, and a lot of people have no idea it even exists. It’s called a no credit check payment plan. It’s not like layaway, where you don’t get your gear until it’s payed off. You get your drum-set shipped right to your door and get to play it while you pay it off.

There’s no interest, you get a 30 day money back guarantee, most orders come with free shipping, no tax, and a best price guarantee.

Previously, I compared the best payment plans for music gear in the US, and found that zZounds came out on top. You can check out that link though and decide for yourself!

PS, if you can find a lower price, I believe they will beat it or meet it by if you call them on it!

Happy shopping!

Update, 01/30/2017: zZounds has actually lowered their financing fee, added tiers, and made a six payment option available. They’ve also lowered the qualifying spend amount to just $59. This makes their payment plans more competitive than ever! I’m including a chart below with the updated fees for financing in each tier.

4 or 6 Payments Processing Fee
Less than $600.00
$600 to $1,000
More than $1,000

More than $1,000

Their plans have gotten even better too! Here’s the updated list of available payment options. Please note that only the 4 payment option on $59-$1000 is currently available without a credit check.

4 Payments with no credit check on most products between $59-$1000
