you need to drill new holes on your bass drum

- heavy duty spurs have different hole spacing
- new spurs should be placed higher

bumili ako niyang lazer one time 16 pcs yata di ko maalala, para sa picollo ko na 13x3, iba iba yung thread tapos hindi sakto yung pagkakapantay pantay, iisang size pero may mga konting difference basta hindi sakto

Hi philmusician,

im planning to buya kit for my 12yo nephew coz i want to get him into drums (reason ko para meron ako ka jam palagi sa house) but before i do that, i want to at least get an idea on the stuff i should look at when purchasing a kit. I played drums for 6 years but never really got into the technical aspect of it like what the actual drums are made of and things like that. So to sum things up, please give me some tips on what to look for when purchasing a kit.



Thank you and have a great day

Depende po sir sa gusto mo na brand. But for my personal choice, and lifetime investment, I'd go for pearl drums. Just pm sir jpmb / jp buduan for the details or drop by yupanco makati na lang.  :-D

There's this guy selling his Pearl Forum in the Pinoy Drums mailing list for the budget you specified. A pretty good starter kit, if you ask me. Contact him at 09272540297.

baka may matisod ka dyan na nagbebenta ng PEARL EXPORT, dun ka na lang...
konting tyaga lng sa paghahanap.. may nag bebenta ng premier dyan, same price range n hanap mo..
check out what model first, then saka mo ask ang mga seniors dito.... ako kc wl ding alam... just got lucky with my kit

ika mo nga eh 12 y/o lang ang gagamit.. bili mo kahit mumurahin lang or 2nd hand. lazer pwede na.. bata pa kasi eh pag binilhan mo ng mamahalin. baka katagalan mag sawa din or hindi niya talaga linya ang drums. at baka masayang ang pagbili mo..

well actually para samin dalawa un. hehehe. reason ko lang sya. hahahah.

ok i think im not getting my message across. The answers i was looking for was, the materials the drums are madoe of, how many lugs, the importance of such and such.

just like buying a guitar, we look for wood, neck, fret wear and stuff.

i had a choice then between a pearl export and a maya kit priced at 22k and 7k respectively (10 years ago). i choose the maya kit coz its cheap. after 5 years, my maya kit has become more expensive than the pearl export due to hardware upgrades and replacements. lesson learned: hardware is more expensive than drums, invest in a drum kit with really good hardware. check the metal used on the lugs, tom holders and stands, some current offerings look like "plastic" and they dont last long esp. on those who over tighten screws and nuts. shiny chrome plating and heavyness are signs of good hardware. stock pedals suck, invest on a high end pedal once you get extra money. GET A DRUM THRONE <--- very very important

shells, birch would be a good starting point but the type of wood is not really important now because your budget will not get you better wood. phil mahogany and bass wood are the common ones used on shells. its ok hehehe i know guitar players hate those woods. just check for ply separation and dents on the edge. finally inspect the finish.

drum sizes, for beginners, it would be really helpful to get those "fusion" sized kits usually configured with 10,12,14 toms and a 20 bass drum. these sizes are easy to tune and easier position for maximum playing comfort since the user would be a kid. standard drums with 12,13,16 toms and a 22 bass drum are ok too but it would be very difficult for beginners to tune the 16" tom.

drum heads - they dont matter, anything will do. you WILL replace them later on so there's no point in looking for something better from the start.

cymbals - go high end from the start, you cant upgrade the sound of cymbal. buy something mediocre and it will be mediocre sounding forever. you dont have to get all cymbals at once. chances are, there is a cymbal pack included so start with what's missing and then replace them one by one later. high end cymbals have good resale value, that's if the drummer decides to quit.

well said peeves...yeah you are right..before i look at the drum throne as a simple seat on the drums...so why would i spend?...until later on i realized thats its hard to play and practice seriously if you are not comfortable with your seat... :wink:..drum throne is a must and yes peeves you are right that you cannot upgrade cymbals..go for the best value.. :wink:
