Beginner Drum Sets For Sale

Buying a first drum set can be quite difficult for anybody that wants to begin learning; with the large variety of beginner drum sets for sale, its hard to decide what price, features, and hardware that you want. You have many options when it comes to considering beginner drum sets for sale; you can buy cymbals and skins separately or as a kit, a single bass or double bass, and an you have an extremely large selection of brands to choose from at that.

When deciding upon a beginner drum set for sale, it is highly recommended that you purchase one that comes with everything that you will need; this holds true for 2 reasons. First off, it is much cheaper to buy a beginner drum set for sale with everything included rather than purchasing the drum shells, skins, cymbals, and pedals separately; as a beginner drummer, it is not recommended that you invest a large sum of money, as you will be learning the basic techniques and sounds. As a beginner drummer you will also be developing your preference for the sounds of the drums that you play on; purchasing a beginner drum set will allow you to hear what a basic drum set sounds like. You can then go about purchasing to your specific audible preference once you have developed some skill and technique.

There are a few things that you should be looking for when deciding upon a beginner drum set for sale. This article will explain each of these factors, as well as give you real life examples of beginner drum sets for sale that you can purchase.


Ideally, a beginner drum set for sale should include 2 or 3 cymbals at the absolute most. Of course you have more options for technique, skill, and sound when you can utilize 7 or 8 cymbals; however, the fact of the matter is that you should only be using 2 or 3 cymbals when you are beginning to play the drums. You should try to look for beginner drum sets for sale that include 2 or 3 cymbals with the kit; these cymbals would be the hi-hat, crash, and ride respectively. You should look for drum sets that include these because they will offerr cymbals that are relative to the beginner drum set that you will be purchasing. For instance, if you are looking at a beginner drum set for sale that has drum shells that are 1 inch smaller than average, it will probably include a pair of cymbals that are 1 inch smaller than average. Opt to purchase a beginner drum set for sale that will include cymbals, so that it can save you the trouble of experimenting for the best result.

Drum Shells

A beginner drum set for sale should include 4 main drums; the snare, two raised toms, and one floor tom. Of course you would be able to build more technique, and experiment with sounds more if you had 8 drums of all different sizes; however, this would definitely be overwhelming for you when you are beginning to play drums. Beginner drum sets for sale may also come with either dual skinned drum shells or single skinned; this is a matter of personal preference. Dual skinned drum shells produce a tighter and harder hitting sound; whereas, single skinned drum shells produce a looser sound that hangs onto the note for a longer duration. I would highly recommend trying both types before you make a decision upon a beginner drum set for sale.


One thing that you will learn as you continue drumming is that every drum skin produces a different sound and effect; however, as a beginner drummer, you will not have used any skins for a long enough period of time to legitimately compare them. And because of this you should simply ensure that the drum skins are included when you are deciding upon a beginner drum set for sale. Even if they are not included in the beginner drum set, most stores will throw them in with the package free of charge if you ask them kindly; if not, they will at least slightly lower the price.

Bass Drum And Pedal

Any beginner drum set for sale that you are considering should also include a bass drum, as well as the associated pedal. Although the beginner drum set should only include a single bass pedal, you should look for one that has the ability to add a second bass pedal thereafter. This will give you the ability to add on to the beginner drum set, and make it an advanced drum set whenever you are ready; the double bass pedal will further allow you to enhance your skills and techniques.

You should be extremely pleased if you decide to buy any of the following models of beginner drum sets for sale:

Mapex Voyager Series With 2 Cymbals $499.00

Mapex Horizon HX Series With 2 Cymbals $629.00

DW Pacific PDP Z5 With 2 Cymbals $429.00

Pearl Forum FZ725 Standard With 3 Cymbals $749.00

Pearl VX925SPB Vision VX With 2 Cymbals $549.99

All of these beginner drum sets for sale offer all of the above factors that were mentioned in this article; and for that reason would be perfect for anybody that has a desire to learn to play the drums. If you decide to go with another beginner drum set for sale, be sure to include the above mentioned factors and you will be absolutely satisfied with your purchase.
