Guide For Buying Your First Drum Kit

Where do you begin?

If you are new to drumming it can be overwhelming and confusing when you start look for a drum kit. You should always buy a starter drum kit because they are designed with the starter in mind and come supplied with everything you need.

What comes in a drum kit?

The starter drum kit comes with all of the drums you will need to get started. The drums in the kit include:

  • A bass drum
  • A snare drum
  • A floor drum
  • Two mounted tom drums

There are no cymbals included in this kit because drum manufactures do not usually make cymbals and vice versa. However, you will need cymbals with your drum set. You can purchase a cymbal kit which is usually called a pre-pack.

What else will I need?

Be sure to check that the drum kit you are purchasing includes the hardware or if you have to purchase it separately. Here hardware means the stand, pedals and the drum seat that you will need. When you are looking for a pedal you may want to consider in investing in a medium to professional quality bass drum pedal. It may cost a little bit more initially, but it will save your money in the long run as it last for a longer period than a basic, beginner pedal. Many drummers think they can save a bit of money by not purchasing a proper drumming chair. You do need the proper seat to support you and absorb the impact of the drumming.
