The first thing to understand if you are starting out in drums is that there are two types of drum kits:
1) Acoustic Drums
These are the real thing. You hit them and they sound wild! They will typically include a bass drum, snare drum, toms and cymbals. Beginners can buy all of these, including accessories (such as a drum stool/throne) as a package deal.
2) Electronic Drums
Very popular with youngsters, electric drums fit in the small spaces of a bedroom and, most importantly, can be enjoyed in headphones, saving the outside world from the constant sound of drum practice.
Check out some hand-picked drums for beginners in this section.
