Here is my recommendation for buying a drum set. Stick with a major brand name: Pearl, Tama, Gretsch, DW. Set priority on cymbals, drums and hardware. See video … the priority may be different than you think.
For a good beginner cymbal set …. start here.
If you can afford it, add this cymbal. You won’t be disappointed. Remember, this cymbal will last a lifetime [and, if needed, have solid resale value]
For a good beginner drum set … start here.
NOTE: In the video I mention the Pearl Export Series, this drum set is no longer available. This link is my most current recommendation.
For hardware, start here…
NOTE: this pack does not include a seat. Here is a link for a seat.
