7 Pro Worship Drummers Give You Their Full Gear Rundown (Bethel, Elevation, Y&F, Hillsong Worship, UPPERROOM, Kari Jobe, & Leeland!)


Welcome to the 1-Stop Spot for an Exhaustive List of All the Gear that the Pro Worship Drummers Use!

If you’re a worship drummer or have purchased worship drum gear then you know the tiring process of figuring out what to buy. Especially if you want to get the gear that other major worship drummers use! Zooming in on Instagram posts, scouring the internet, it’s all just too much!

So we decided to eliminate that draining endeavor & compile in one place a detailed list of all the gear the major worship drummers use.

This isn’t a rough estimate either. We personally connected with every person on this list & they told us what they are using.

If you’re a worship drummer or know a worship drummer, this is a list that you want to have accessible at all times!

So anyways, we’ll get out of the way. Enjoy!
