Purple Chord , Classic Drums and Cymbals is a vintage drum and cymbal specialist based near Amsterdam in the Netherlands. 

From our unique and special showroom in Aalsmeer, we sell, buy and exchange classic and vintage drums and cymbals.  

We are an official Ludwig dealer.  We have one of the largest collections of vintage Paiste cymbals in Europe.

Our specialist focus is Ludwig, Gretsch, Premier, Rogers, Slingerland, Hollywood, Beverley drums, Paiste and Zildjian cymbals. We stock Istanbul AGOP, Bosphorus and Impression ranges.

We have high standards; all our products have been lovingly restored. When we receive a drum, we dismount it; inspect it; clean it; if parts need replacing we do so using original ones; reassemble it tuned and ready to play.  All our products are pictured accurately with imperfections indicated clearly.

Monday to Saturday - 9.30 to 18.00 or on appointment at other times.

We offer outstanding, high quality classic and vintage instruments, combining excellent service with a consultative, friendly approach.  

Shipping is worldwide with UPS, to guarantee safe and secure delivery at a fair and competitive price. 


All our products are fully re-conditioned and ready to play or simply to be admired!
