Post 7 of 13

For a beginner in drums, we would recommend the following items:

  • Drum Sticks– We recommend using sizes 7A drum sticks. (Recommended brands: Vic Firth Nova, Zildjian, Pro Mark)
  • Practice pads for hands– 12-inch size. Recommended brands: Muman, Zildjian, Vic Firth, Stagg (preferably purchase a practice pad that comes with a stand, if not please purchase a snare stand or a good strong stool to keep it on). This is very essential for a drum student to practice.
  • Bass drum Practice pads (for feet)– Recommended brands: Mapex Falcon POP1000, Pearl BD10 (you will need to purchase pedals additionally – Recommended brands: Stagg PP50, TAMA HP30, Basix PD800)
