So you have started drumming and need a new kit and a place to start. Even if you are entirely in the dark about what you need and where to start, there are many starter drum kits available to help get you started.
Here are the top three starter drum kits that we think you’ll love:
Retro Style: Gretsch Catalina Club
This 4-piece kit is a punchy throwback with retro drum sizes and finish. Mahogany shells give you an excellent low-end punch that is versatile and perfect for a broad range of music styles. A shallow bass drum depth is effortless to work with thanks to it’s 14” x 18” size.
Note that this is a shell pack, meaning cymbals and hardware are not included.
Budget Friendly: Yamaha Rydeen
The Yamaha Rydeen 5-piece shell pack is budget friendly and has enough variations that it will grow with beginner players. This set boasts the excellent quality that we have all come to expect from Yamaha, and utilizes Yamaha hardware featuring Genuine Yamaha tom and pipe clamps.
Full Set: Pearl Roadshow
The Pearl Roadshow is a full set, meaning cymbals and other hardware like drumsticks are included. This set is also budget friendly, right behind the Yamaha Rydeen. The Pearl Roadshow has everything you need to start drumming and features quality hardware that can stand the intensity of prolonged sessions.
With the ability to adjust its height and angles, the Pearl Roadshow is a solid investment for new players who want the whole package.
