A drum set is a collection of drums and other percussion instruments, typically cymbals, which are set up on stands to be played by a single player with drumsticks held in both hands and the feet operating pedals that control the hi-hat cymbal and the beater for the bass drum.
A drum set consists of a mix of drums and idiophones most significantly cymbals but also including the woodblock and cowbell.
In the 2000s, some kits also include electronic instruments and both hybrid (mixing acoustic instruments and electronic drums) and entirely electronic kits are used.
A standard modern kit (for a right-handed player), as used in popular music and taught in music schools, contains:
- A snare drum, mounted on a stand, placed between the player’s knees and played with drum sticks (which may include rutes or brushes)
- A bass drum, played by a pedal operated by the right foot, which moves a felt-covered beater
- One or more toms, played with sticks or brushes(usually three-floor tom,rack tom1/2 )
- A hi-hat (two cymbals mounted on a stand), played with the sticks, opened and closed with left foot pedal (can also produce sound with the foot alone)
- One or more cymbals, mounted on stands, played with the sticks
