    I can't seem to get your online shopping cart to work. What should I do?
    From time to time a customer will have problems using our secure shopping cart. This is often due to low memory resources on their computer. Try restarting your computer and initiating the order again. In some cases a customer will need to adjust the "security settings" on their browser for online ordering to be successful. Either way, if you are not having any luck, please call 1 800 DRUM BUM (378-6286)
    Monday through Friday, 9 to 5 est. and we will be happy to take your order by phone.

    Is it safe to order online with my credit card?

    Yes, much safer than you think. Although many people are nervous about online monetary transactions, you are more likely to have your credit card information stolen through hand to hand transactions with gas stations, grocery stores and the like. Online shopping sometimes gets a bad rap in the press. I'm here to tell you that, as long as you use common sense and stick with reputable companies, you will be among millions of satisfied customers that successfully shop online everyday without any problems whatsoever. We are in our 10th year of business and have served thousands of customers through online, telephone, and mail in ordering. Please click the Verisign seal below to validate our store and the authenticity of our SSL certificate. This ssl (secure socket layer) ensures your credit card information is safe and secure on our network. - Visit our testimonials page.

    *If you feel uncomfortable using our Secure Online Shopping Cart, please call
    1 800 DRUM BUM to place your order or print out our Mail-in Order Form.

    How does a secure transaction take place?
    When you press the 'submit' button after filling out the order form, your address and credit card information is encrypted. It is then transmitted and temporarily stored on our secure server until the transaction is completed.

    to the top

    Is all the 'secure' technology the same?
    Most secure technology is similar with minor differences. DRUM BUM uses an established and reputable web host that provides 128-bit state of the art RSA encryption technology. This encrypts all of your personal information and basically ensures the safest possible online transaction available.

    Why don't you sell Pearl drums or other cymbals, etc.?

    Because we're not a drum shop per se. We're a gift shop with a drum and music theme.
    We offer a few kid's drumsets and drum accessories but otherwise we're
    interested in maintaining the integrity of what we are; a music gift shop
    specializing in drums-related gifts for drummers (and now gifts for all musicians).

    *Please visit our other music gift sites, MusicWear.com and MusicOrnaments.com.

    item and quantity ordered. Click here to see companies and organizations that have purchased from our store.

    Can I track my order?

    Yes, as long as we're shipping to an address located in the United States. Orders shipping to an
    International address will ship via US Air Mail and tracking information is not available for this service.
    After we ship your order, you will be forwarded USPS or UPS tracking information via e-mail. If you do not receive an email with tracking information, your order may have been drop-shipped from another location
