Ans. Depending on the experience level of the drummer, different kits vary in their number of inclusions.

Some popular add-ons are cymbals, percussion table, shakers, tambourine, wind chimes, dampening pads and timbales.

You can also buy specially designed “junior set” for kids. “Rock set” is one of the most popular size choices, followed by "fusion" and "hybrid".
Ans. Acoustic drums kits, commonly known as traditional drums, consist of various corer drums such as bass drum, snare drum, tom drums, etc. made of natural material like maple, birch, and poplar wood. Electric drums, on the other hand, are made of discs or pads covered with rubber/silicone or cloth-like material. While the acoustic ones produce an authentic natural percussion sound, electric ones produce manipulated digital voice, making acoustic ones more appealing. However, the feature of controlling voice output and features like performance recording have made electric ones a popular choice lately. Portability and reduced-space needs are other factors playing in the favour of electric ones.
Ans. Tuning of drums refers to the adjustment of frequency and/or pitch. Though, each drum demands a different tuning technique, the standard procedure for all is similar.
Ans. Cases are an absolute must for the maintenance of all the drum-ware, and dramatically increase their shelf-life.
