Drum Kit / Drum Set

A drum set or drum kit, is the name of the setup of your hardware. This usually does not include your cymbals; however some people will include this into the description. A drum set can be any size, as well as any style. The most common drum sets out there are the 5 piece kits. These are set ups with a bass drum, snare drum, and 3 toms. Some small kits may only include the bass drum and snare, which are more common in jazz and other smaller band set ups.  

Here is an example of a large Drum kit.

Drum Kits are the drummer’s tool. No matter what style of music you play, everyone has their own preference with set up. Make sure you experiment with every set up and design you can think of. You may be surprised to find you play better with a different drum kit setup.
