The Ultimate Drum-Set Buying Guide
Ok, first things first. If you are a beginner then we think it is best if you get the whole set and not just a shell pack. A shell pack contains just drums, nothing else. It is okay for someone who already owns the other items needed to complete a set but if you are someone who is just starting the musical journey then you will need more than just drums. You can, however, buy a shell pack and then the other items separately but it will be rather expensive and will require a bit of extra work. So what are the other items we keep talking about? Well, a complete set includes drums, cymbals, and hardware. Advanced drummers usually mix and match as they know what is required to fit their needs but for beginners, it may be confusing and that is why complete drum sets are recommended.
This is where music gets personalized. For advanced drummers, the cymbal set up is what matters the most in giving that personal touch and tone. Cymbals can be made using two different materials: sheet bronze and cast bronze. Cast bronze cymbals have more variety in tone as they are created from single metal slabs that have been beaten to shape, whereas sheet bronze cymbals are cut out from metal sheets in round shapes to create the final products. In terms of price, sheet bronze cymbals are cheaper as they are easily crafted and maintained, but they lack the tonal density of the cast bronze cymbals which are more expensive.
A drum set is never complete without the hardware. Hardware items will include all the necessary things besides the drums and cymbals that are required to play music. The most important items are the pedals, drum stool (throne) and stand Although the drums and the cymbals take the most hit, the hardware is what determines the durability of the set. A decent bass pedal will adjust to fit your style of playing so you can put all your concentration on creating music. If the pedal can be customized and is rugged then that’s a bonus.
You probably know why it is important to get a comfortable throne for yourself. Thrones must be comfortable and long lasting or else you will never fully enjoy playing. If you are going to be playing or practicing for hours then you need to give a lot of priority to being relaxed and sitting on a throne that makes you fidget will not help in any way. The height of the stool must also be adjusted so you can play more accurately.
Stands hold the cymbals and snares. They must be sturdy enough to support and hold everything that comes with the set.
This is where the sound comes from. The shell is the surrounding part of the drum and it is responsible for the release of sound once you hit the head and the material of the shell will determine what kind of sound the drum will produce. Shells can be made from wood, metal, and synthetics. The most common wood used is maple, birch, mahogany, oak, and walnut while the metals could include carbon steel, brass, aluminum, copper, bronze, and titanium. Synthetics include carbon fiber, acrylic, and fiberglass. You can also find hybrid shells where the materials are mixed to produce unique sounds.
Maple shells are very popular as they produce even amounts of high and mid-tones, while the low tones appear slightly warm. Birch and mahogany are also well-liked due to their distinctive sounds. In metals, steel (carbon) provides great balance, therefore, it is well preferred.
If you are looking for a specific type of sound to play then you must first find out about the shell material.
Drumheads can be thick or thin. Thicker heads produce dark and controlled sounds while a thin head will create a clearer and brighter sound with more zest.
The Number of Drums and Their Sizes
Generally, drum sets come in packs of 5 pieces. You can add on extra drums depending on the kind of music you want to play or buy a set with more pieces. Sizes can be categorized as fusion, rock or hybrid. If you are looking for rock drum sets then the drums will be fairly larger, the bass drum will have a 22inch diameter, the toms will be 12, 13 and 16 inches in diameter while the snare will be 14inch. Bass drums infusion or hybrid sets are usually 20-22 inch with toms measuring at 10, 12 and 14 infusions and 10, 12 and 16 inches in hybrids. Snares will be 14inch. Rock drum sets may be a little too large for young players due to the positioning of the larger toms. If you are going to get a set for a youngster then you can choose a fusion or hybrid set as they can be adjusted to a lower position.
Drumsticks are like paint brushes, they are assigned a number and each one is used to create a different sound. Lower numbers are for larger circumferences. If its jazz or folk you wish to play then thinner sticks are best as they produce quieter sounds. For metal, R&B or punk you must go for thicker sticks.
Brand and Price
If it is good sound quality and longevity you are after then we suggest you avoid cheaply made drum sets. Good brands usually give you the assurance you need when it comes to great sound, comfortable playing, and a long-lasting performance. Pick a few decent brands and then look at what they have to offer. It is always a good idea to compare a few products so you can pick the best one out of the lot.
Always do your researches before you make your final pick and the best way to really know about a product is to read about what other users think of it. Reading customer reviews will give you more information than the product descriptions at the store will because they will be tried and tested reviews.
Now the big question, why should you buy a drum set?
If you have not completely convinced yourself why you should just place that order then we are here to give you some solid reasons.
1. Learn a new musical instrument- If you are planning on learning something new then why not the drums? They sound great, you will look cool while playing with them and you can impress your loved ones with your skills.
2. Enhance your skills. If you have been playing for a while then it is best you have a set at home so you can always practice and brush up your skills. The more you play the better you will get at it.
3. Create a band. This is something every youngster will enjoy. Having a band will not only be fun but you can also play for others and become popular in your area in no time.
4. Make your own music. When you have your own drum set at home then you can even try to create a few of your own tunes. Who knows, maybe you have what is takes to be a great musician?
5. Entertainment-what is a party without music and it is even better if you play it yourself. You can host great get-togethers and make it even more entertaining by playing a few popular beats to charge up the party.
6. It makes a wonderful present. If not for yourself then you can purchase a drum set for a friend or family member or anyone you know who has the talent and the passion for music. A decent drum set makes an amazing gift.
Frequently Asked Questions:
How do I care for the cymbals?
Cymbals may appear as strong and hard items and they will probably last you for years but only if you take good care of them. They are actually quite delicate and can crack if played incorrectly. Make sure the cymbals are placed accurately on the stands and are not over tightened either. If the cymbal does not move freely then it will be prone to cracking. Try not to directly hit the edges while playing because that will cause further damage. You must also keep the cymbals clean.
What are the main things to look for in a drum set?
Generally, drum sets come with 5 drum pieces; a snare drum, a bass drum, two tom-toms mounted on the bass drum and a floor tom. Cymbals are not counted as drum pieces and a standard set will include ride cymbal, hi-hat cymbal, and crash cymbal. Alongside these, there will be the hardware to complete the set which will include items like tom holders, cymbal stands, hi-hat stand, snare stand, bass drum pedal, and a stool also known as a throne for the player to sit on. This completes a standard 5-piece set but you may also find 4-piece, 7-piece or customized sets to suit your requirements.
Will I be able to assemble the set on my own?
Most kits come with manuals so you will be able to put together everything yourself. The instructions are usually easy to follow and you can have the set ready in a matter of minutes.
How do I choose a kit for children?
You can tell by reading the product description on a kit if it designed for adults or children. If your child is old enough to play the drums and has a keen interest in music then most kits will work for him/her although it will be best if the drums are not too big in size depending on her age.
Can I start learning with a cheaper set and then move to something more expensive?
That would be a good idea if you are planning to get a set for younger children because they may find it easier to learn on a simple set and then move to something bigger and of better quality as they improve their skills. However for adults who are not yet skilled in the area, should still invest in a decent set even for their beginner’s level because a good set will last them for years, maybe decades if looked after well and they can practice even better on high-quality drums, learning more about sounds and different techniques.
What other extra accessories do I need for my drum set?
If you buy a whole drum set then it will come with all the necessary items to get you started. That is one of the biggest advantages of investing in a full set. But of course you can buy a whole lot of other accessories which may not be a requirement but they will surely improve the quality of the music and maybe even allow you to create unique sounds. Woodblocks, cowbells, drumming gloves, cases and stick grips are some of the extra things you can add to your set.
You must consider the sound, design, and quality when purchasing a drum kit because without these three things you will not enjoy playing nor will you be happy with the performance. Fortunately, it is now easy to find good quality kits at affordable prices so don’t have to break the bank to make your dream of playing this awesome musical instrument come true. Just find the best drum sets based on the kind of music you wish to play and see that it fits your budget.
