You've probably heard the term 'drum set' or 'drum kit' before but have you actually given much thought as to what is actually in one? In this lesson, we're going to try and introduce you to what is in a basic drum set; what it looks like, what it sounds like etc. We'll be going through each indivudual part of the drum kit in detail; cymbals and drums. The diagram to the right shows the parts of a standard, 5-piece drum set (5-piece referring to the number of drums - cymbals aren't counted here). Throughout this lesson, we'll be referring back to it so that you can see where everything goes.
