Drum Sets Buying Guide

Music and musical instruments have always been in demand. Especially, with drums, the demand has gone up significantly in the last few years. Today, drumming has become the favorite skill and activity among kids. To be able to make good music is just not a hobby,  but a skill that will help you develop physically and mentally. But, developing this skill requires a good drum set. Drum sets usually come with a bass drum, mounted tom drum, snare drum, and a cymbal. This allows you to experiment with different sounds, instruments and have a productive drumming session.

But purchasing a drum pack for a beginner can be overwhelming as there will be many models, features, scales and styles to choose from. Thus, we have broken down key pointers from the type of drum set to the essential hardware. Our buying guide will certainly help you explore the right set. Continue reading our buying guide to know more.

Benefits of Drum Sets

Great Exercise

Drumming is not only a fun activity but a great exercise well. Playing the drums require rigorous lower and hand movements. So, apart from passion, they can serve as a great way to tone those leg and hand muscles.

Improves Motor Skills

Playing the drums requires a significant amount of hand-eye coordination. Similar to sports and video games, drum sets sharpen motor control in kids as they need to maintain the sync between hands and beats. It also allows kids to learn rhythm and timing.

Social Development

Drumming is not only a good physical exercise but also a way to boost motor skills. Thus, it helps kids to be more social. It allows your child to broaden their circle as they act as an inroad for the musical community. Playing the drums empowers your kid to interact with like-minded people in teaming up and enjoy music with friends.

Factors to Consider While Buying Drum Sets

Age of Child

Junior drum sets are generally fit for kids between the ages 3-8 and are somewhere in the range of 2.5ft and 5ft tall. For children who are taller than average, we suggest going with a full-size kit. To avoid buying the wrong one, be aware of the height of your child and the size of the drum unit. If you are purchasing a full-sized drum unit, your child might not be able to reach the kick drum pedal or other units.

Number of Drums

From 3 pieces to 5 pieces, drum sets are available in various options. The ideal set will depend upon individual needs and preferences. However, if you are serious drummers and can afford expensive drums, then go with a set of 5 pieces. This will allow more control on drums and also offers good sound quality. But, for beginners with 2 or 3 piece drum sets, it is advisable to go with sets that are  easy to play and are affordable.

Shell Quality

Not all drums are made of the same wood. Some are made of lightweight material and bends after some time, while some are sturdy enough to last years with minimal wear and tear. Thus, the buy one that is made of wood like maple, birch, beech, and oak.

Drumsticks

Drumsticks are an essential part of a drummer's sound. They come in various sizes and are produced using various sorts of wood. It is important to check the size and quality of the stick before buying. Make sure that the stick length should be between 15 to 17.5 inches to avoid discomfort. The quality of the stick should be good and made of either oak or maple. They are lightweight,durable and comfortable to play with.

Conclusion

Purchasing a drum set can truly improve your child's creativity. But, today the market is now full of junior drum sets that are designed for kids from 3 to 10 years. Although smaller, they usually feature essential parts that can be found in full-size drum sets. So make sure to buy a set after following the pointers mentioned above. If you are buying online check for reviews and return policy as well.

To know more about your buying options, look through some of the best products that we have listed in our featured section above. They are reviewed and recommended based on their quality, performance, and durability.
