Got a kit? You gotta have cymbals! Cymbals are an essential part of the drum kit, but can also an expensive part! There's no doubt in the value of high cost cymbals as the overall sound of your playing will be far greater. But what if your budget doesn't stretch to top end cast cymbals? Fear not, there is a good range of low cost cymbals available.
This section is aimed at helping parents buying a drum kit, or for someone who is brand new to drums and is unsure. Hopefully it will help to give a better picture of what may be in store, and to give an idea of what you may be looking for.
No drum kit is complete without cymbals! But there are hundreds of different models so how do you know what to go for? What makes a good cymbal anyway? Hopefully this section will answer your questions! If you would like specific advice on buying entry level cymbals and cymbal sets please get in touch.
One of the first things to consider when learning to play the drums is the set-up of your kit. The height, angles and placement of your stool, drums and cymbals all effect the way you play so it's a good idea to build the most ergonomically efficient kit for your body and style. This will give you the greatest control and touch on the kit allowing you to play better, faster and for longer.
