I was looking for different drum sets for my grandson because he loves hitting things. Turns out that he was pretending to play drums. I set my eyes first on the Music Alley DBJK02 Beginners Drum Kit for Kids.
This drum set is a complete 3 piece set, which is ideal for little ones that are aspiring to be drummers in the future. It is made with affordable materials but doesn’t compromise too much on quality. This drum is not the same size that professionals use. Its size is scaled down, designed for kids between 3 to 7 years of age. The set includes everything that children need to learn with basics, such as the 3 different drums that they can jam and hit on. The largest drum here is the bass drum, and that perfect low tone is best to create music. It’s hanging tom-toms add that extra bang. Aside from that, its crash cymbal is another amazing addition that produces a different kind of sound to the music. It’s lightweight drumsticks make it easy to hit the drums, not to mention the cushioned chair making it comfortable for any player to hit on the set. Any young kid will rock out with this drum set, which is why it is the best first instrument to give any kid that is interested in playing drums.
Here are the specs of this drum set:
- 14 inches bass drum
- 10 inches cymbal
- 8 inches snare drum
- Pedal for bass drum
- Adjustable padded drum chair
My experience with this drum set
While I never played the drum set personally, I was observing my grandson playing the drum set I gave him. It is really perfect for children that are interested in learning more about playing drums. My grandson is 5 years of age, and his height is just perfect for the drum set that I gave him. He really loved the drum set so much that he kept playing with it every day. It has already been 4 months since I last gave it to him for his birthday, and the drums still remain intact.
What to watch out for
This drum set is designed for children ages between 3 to 6 years. My son is 5 years old, so his height is just perfect for the drum set he is playing with. I really have no idea with how it will turn out with kids over 6 years of age, but if their height is suited for the drum set, then there are no problems at all.
Some parents may find buying a drum set for their kids would be too noisy to have in their own home. The only advice I can give is to prepare a room that is going to contain most of the sounds produced by the drum set. You can place the drum set inside a room that is far away from where the bedrooms are usually located.
Most of all, I highly recommend this to parents that want to teach their kids how to play drums from the basics. This is perfect for beginners!
