Have you always dreamed about becoming a great drummer? Do you want to learn how to play the drums like rock legends, Travis Barker of Blink 182 and Lars Ulrich of Metallica? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then it may be time for you to shop for your own drum set or drum kit.

It may seem really simple to shop for a drum set but it’s not. You also need to remember that even the cheapest drum set will cost you some money. So be prepared to bring 400 to 1,000 dollars when you go shopping for a beginner’s drum set. If you want to go for cheaper drum kits, then you can always try buying used drum kits.

So, here are some of the things that you need to consider before you buy a drum kit. By keeping these things in mind, you will be able to buy the right drum kit for you to learn how to play the drums on.

As a beginner drummer, you need to start with a beginner’s drum kit. When learning how to play the drums, you don’t need to buy drum sets that professionals use. The beginner or starter drum kit will have all the things you need to start learning how to play the drums. The other accessories will follow soon after you master the basics.

The regular beginner’s drum kit will include a snare drum, a bass drum, two mounted toms, and a floor tom. The cymbals will not be included in the set and you will need to purchase them separately. For the cymbals, you will need a hi-hat, a crash, and a ride. These things are enough for you to start playing drums at a beginner level.

The hardware will include the stands, pedals, and the drum seat or also known as the throne.

If you can, try buying a medium or professional quality drum pedal and drum seat. A beginner drum seat and pedals may break easily.

You should also research a bit about the drum kits that are available in the market. Compare the quality by taking a look at reviews and also check the prices. Go for a set that you are comfortable with and also go for a store with a knowledgeable staff in order for you to get a good advice on what kind of drum kit you should go for.

As you can see, it’s not that difficult to buy your first drum kit or drum set. With a bit of research, you will be able to get the right drum kit for you to learn how to play the drums on.

Always remember that even if you have a professional drum set, you will not be able to play like how the rock legends do. You need to take it one step at a time and you should also try getting proper lessons from a professional drummer. They will be able to teach you the basics and get you ready to rock out on jam sessions with your friends.
