What are the basic parts of a childs drumset?

Most childrens drumsets include the following basic drums and parts: a bass drum; a snare drum; a mounted tom; bass drum pedal, and a cymbal. Some will come with drum stools and beginners drum sets may also contain a hi-hat stand with cymbals, a floor tom, an additional mounted tom, and sometimes additional stands and/or cymbals.

Should I buy my kid a toy drumset or a larger beginners drumset?

Parents should not buy a kids drumset or a beginners drumset before considering several factors. The first factor is the age and size of the child. First and foremost, their feet must be able to reach the pedals. The second factor to consider before purchasing is the level of interest in drums and drumming. If the drumset is something the child might be interested in for years to come, a beginner set is a better choice as it is more preferred by drum teachers. If you need more information, please call us at 1-800-378-6286.

How much should I expect to pay for a childs drum set?

As with anything else in life, you get what you pay for. So, while the cheaper plastic "toy" drums might be more appealing to your wallet initially, they aren't going to last very long and you will need to pay more money for something sturdier like a kids drumset. Prices vary but expect to pay within the range of $80-150 for a quality kids drumset. Beginners drumsets will be slightly pricier as they contain more parts and are closer to the pro-level of drumsets. Parents can expect to pay $200-500 for a beginner drumset. (Mid-level to Professional drumsets can cost several thousands of dollars.) If you need more information, please call us at 1-800-378-6286.

How do I determine what size child drumset to purchase?

Every child is different in size no matter if they are the same age. As a guideline, for children under the age of 10, parents should look for a drum set with a bass drum usually between 12-14" in diameter as is found in a kids drumset. For older children, a beginners drumset with a bass drum of at least 16" in diameter is preferred. If you need more information, please call us at 1-800-378-6286.

What extras are included with the drumsets?

Children's drumsets sometimes include the following extra drum parts: a drum key for tuning the drums; a pair of kids drumsticks; educational drum books or drumming dvds on how to play the drums; and a sometimes a free drum seat to go with your drumkit. If you need more information, please call us at 1-800-378-6286.

What is the durability of the kids drum sets?

The drumsets feature real wood drum shells and quality hardware which makes them last longer than the cheaper plastic drumsets. Many beginner drumsets (sized for teens and entry level drummers) feature double braced hardware for even more stability and durability. As with anything, the durability also depends on how well the drumset is looked after; the drumsets can last a good while with the proper care and maintenance. If you need more information, please call us at 1-800-378-6286.

How do I tell the differences between "toy" drumsets and kids drumsets?

While the small kids drumsets are closer to the "toy" end of the drumset spectrum than a professional kit, they differ from the cheap toy drum sets you find at retail outlets in that they feature some of the same characteristics of professional drumsets. The drum heads are tunable by using a drum key just like a pro level drumset and can be replaced if needed. Also, the drum hardware is sturdier and the drum shells are real wood shells instead of cheap plastic. You can tell the difference in price also. If you find a childs drumset under $50, more than likely it is made of mostly plastic. Where the better made kid drumsets are going to be $79 and up. If you need more information, please call us at 1-800-378-6286.

How hard is it to put together a kids or childs drum kit?

Childrens drumsets are not very difficult to assemble at all and most come pre-packaged with easy-to-follow instructions. (If they are not included, you can usually contact the company to get them.) Some kids drum sets even come mostly pre-assembled to make it even easier on parents. If you need more information, please call us at 1-800-378-6286.

Is the drumset adjustable to be able to fit my child's size?

Each child drumset features one of more components that are adjustable to better fit your child's size. This includes the drum stool and the tom and cymbal stand. The drum stool can be adjusted to provide the right height for your child to sit comfortably. If you need more information, please call us at 1-800-378-6286.

What does the basic layout of a small kids drumset look like?

Most smaller kids drumsets are considered 3 piece drumsets because they contain 3 individual drums: snare drum, bass drum, and mounted tom tom drum. Any additional drum parts such as cymbal stands, drum stools (or thrones, as they're sometimes called), drum pedals, etc. are not counted when determining how many pieces the drumset includes. The basic layout of a simple, small kids drumset is as appears in the picture below:

What does the basic layout of the beginner drumsets look like?

The 5 piece larger beginners drumset includes 5 individual drums (bass drum, snare drum, 2 tom toms, and a floor tom.) So even without the stands and cymbals, a drumset containing 5 drums would be considered a 5 piece drumset. The basic layout of a beginners drumset or starter drumkit is as appears below. Note that the standard drumset is larger and a small children under the age of 9 may have trouble reaching the pedals:

A - Bass Drum E - One Ride (or Crash/Ride)
B -  Snare Drum L - One crash (optional)
