Percussion Plus Beginner Drumset
Parents are often looking for a reasonably priced
starter drumset for their son or daughter. They don't
want to spend $500 or $600 for a nicer set until they
see how committed their child is to practicing and
whether or not they will stick to it.
has searched the market and found what we think
is a great beginners drumset at a terrific bargain.
The "Percussion Plus" beginner drumset
has garnered much praise in the industry and recently
won an award for excellence. This in and of itself
says something. It means that the music industry
felt that this was a well-constructed drumset and
a good value for the money.
shells are made of multi-ply hardwoods. Available
colors are Black, Metallic Wine Red, Metallic Red,
Steel Grey, Metallic Smoky Silver, Midnight Blue,
Bronze, Metallic Sea Green, and Brushed
Red (new colors!). The sizes are generous and
the toms are "power toms" meaning they
have a deeper sound in drumsets preferred by young
drummers today. Additionally, all the drums come
equipped with quality drumheads.
hardware (metal stands) is all double braced.
This helps the stands stay upright when played relatively
hard and renders them more durable in the long run.
cymbals leave a bit to be desired but this
is typical for lower priced starter drumsets. Better
cymbals would drive the price up another $300 or
more. The student can always upgrade to better cymbals
at a later date.
Features that are not always included on a beginner
drumset in this price range include:
- 12 lugs on each of the mounted toms (this provides
for more flexibility in tuning)
- A 16" bass drum (as opposed to 14").
- Adjustable telescoping bass drum legs that allow
for greater positioning.
- A steel snare drum (as opposed to wood) that offers
more flexibility in tone.
- Quality REMO clear drumheads.
- Cymbals and throne included! (Not often included
with a drumset priced this low).
hope this review on beginner drumsets has been helpful.
