Our editorial team selected these products based on dozens of instrument reviews from critics, experts and amateur users. We decided on set criteria for each category and rated drum kits in each category accordingly.
Pearl is one of the most renowned musical instrument brands around and it is hard to go past the brand's flagship model the Roadshow RS525. Dozens of professional drum reviewers and hundreds of customers on Amazon praised this kit as the best available.
It features a large 22"×16" bass drum, 16"×16" floor tom, 12"×9" and 10"×8" toms, 5" snare drum and cymbal package. What sets it apart from other models is the 9-ply poplar shell with 1.2mm triple-flanged hoop.
The Roland TD-50KVX is the most advanced of the Roland range and was rated the best electronic drum kit available by several instrument review sites around the world.
The TD-50KVX has a full acoustic bass drum as well as a 14-inch full-sized snare head, with a deep shell. The advanced processor comes with a PD-140DS Digital Snare and CY-18DR Digital Ride, featuring multi-element sensor systems and high-speed digital communication with the module.
In mounting a KD-A22 Kick Drum Converter, drummers can reach an impressive hybrid sound with significant editing abilities and adaptable connectivity.
Reviews from dozens of instrument review websites were in consensus that the Mendini MDS 80 5 piece was the best cheap drum kit and best for beginners on the market.
This has the same elements as the top end drum kits with a round padded height adjustable drum throne, a pair of wooden drum sticks, double braced snare, cymbal and hi-hat stands as well as a chain drive bass drum pedal.
Mendini might not have the same brand recognition as others but for an adult beginner on a budget, you could do a lot worse.
The Gammon 5-piece junior starter drum set was widely praised by Amazon reviewers and critics, many of whom were parents speaking glowingly of their child's introduction to drumming via this kit.
With a lug bass drum, wood snare drum, toms, cymbals and a snare stand, there are enough pieces involved to appropriately challenge children embarking on a percussion learning curve. The array of colour options adds to the aesthetic appeal for any potential drumming superstar.
User reviews and critical acclaim across drumming blogs such as gearsavvy, pmtonline and musicradar have the Ludwig Backbeats by Questlove rated as the optimal small drum kit on the market today.
This was specifically designed by Roots drummer Questlove to appeal to those living in small apartments and to make moving from gig to gig a little easier. It comes with a 16"x14" bass drum, 10"x7" rack tom, 13"x13" floor tom and a snare drum at a more standard 14"x5".

When products are grouped in a table or list, the order in which they are initially sorted may be influenced by a range of factors including price, fees and discounts; commercial partnerships; product features; and brand popularity.

We try to take an open and transparent approach and provide a broad-based comparison service. However, you should be aware that while we are an independently owned service, our comparison service does not include all providers or all products available in the market.
Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.
