The Best Starter Drum Kits!

Thinking of buying your first-ever drum kit, but haven’t got a clue where to start? Fear not! We’ve put together a list of three fantastic starting points to get you rocking in no time!

The Natal DNA 5pc Drum Kit is a fantastic option to get any young drummer started, as it comes with everything you need in the box! The DNA comes complete with shells, hardware, cymbals, kick pedal, throne and even drumsticks; making it the perfect solution for a starter acoustic drum kit.

The Natal DNA is available in two configurations, 20in and 22in and available in two colours: Red or Black. As acoustic kits are naturally louder, we also offer a bundle package that includes silencer pads to reduce the overall volume but keep the fun at an all-time high!

If the volume is an issue but the sound quality is paramount, look no further than the Yamaha DTX452k Electronic Drum Kit. Part of the DTX402 family from Yamaha, The DTX452k is our most popular entry-level electronic kit for a reason.

For starters, it features high-quality Yamaha-recorded drum sounds coupled with quiet rubber-style pads for a low-volume, realistic touch. The sound module itself has 10 pre-assigned drum kits, with accompanying play-along songs and 10 unique training functions.

The DTX452k features the KP65 kick drum tower and comes with a bass drum pedal, unlike the DTX402k. It also includes a three-zone snare pad for head, rim-shot and cross-stick sounds, unlike the DTX432k. You can also increase the functionality with the free DTX402 Touch app, expanding the capabilities of the module even further!

Yamaha Rydeen

Sticking with Yamaha, The Yamaha Rydeen 5pc Drum Kit is exactly what any beginner or intermediate player would love to play. This drum set utilizes Yamaha hardware featuring Genuine Yamaha tom and pipe clamps and is available in two configurations and three colour wrap options; Black Glitter, Burgundy Glitter and Silver Glitter.

Along with a pro-level HW680w Hardware set, the Rydeen also comes with complete Paiste 101 cymbals, featuring hi-hats, crash cymbal and a ride cymbal. We also offer a bundle package that includes drum throne, drumsticks and silencer pads
