The drum set has a lot of different parts to it and when you are new, it can be a bit overwhelming. It is important to learn all of the different parts so that you can learn the role they play in the drum set. There is a standard set up and a fusion set up, there are single and double bass pedals, small toms and larger ones, and many many more.

BUT!! Learning the parts of a drum set will be no big deal if you love drumming!

Parts Of The Drum Set

Here is a fusion drum set. Its tom toms are the 10",12" and 14" Floor Tom. It has the standard crash cymbal and a pair of hi-hat cymbals. This is usually what you will get if you are beginner drummer searching for a drum set for the first time. It's a perfect set up! You can also get the standard sized drum kit with 12",13" and 14" toms.

Learning the different parts of your set is good for:

* Understanding the make up of your drum set

* Can help you when your reading drum notes

* Helps give you a better understanding of how things work.

* Makes you look a bit more professional in terms of being able to "know" your instrument

* If something breaks you know what part you need

Learn the different parts to your drums. If you want to be taken seriously as a drummer, you need to know your stuff!

Get rid of the "Ummm I think this part is called"...and "I think this is how it works"... be professional, look professional and most of all, practice to play professionally!
