Death's Drums follow in a lot of other item's footsteps, being that it's main purpose is to boost several stats in minor ways rather than introduce extraordinary powers or extensive gains in a single property. In this case, increasing both pierce and range to the equipped character.
Since Pierce can be naturally low for some characters, equipping Death's Drums to the likes of Max or Super Monkey, as it allows the base character to have some extra power without needing to resort to upgrades.
If one wants to keep upgrading a character's single stat, there is no harm in using a trinket like Death's Drums to fill the empty trinket spot and contribute at least a little to the cause until a better item comes along. It is useful as a filler, and given its lower rarity rating, can be picked up early into the game to give the player that slight edge to push into new maps and possibly into the next difficulty bracket.
