RENTAL DRUMKIT WEBSITES

If you're interested in renting first, to see if your child will continue playing before you commit to buying a set, have a look at these 2 websites for rental drumkits.

1. Yamaha drum kit hire page. -  CLICK HERE

2. Music Corp. Rentals - CLICK HERE

For around $500-$1000 (or lower, depending on brand and series) you can get a fairly decent second-hand kit with everything. New for $500-$700 will be a much cheaper quality drumkit mostly without cymbals and stool, which is more likely to have various components break easily.

It’ll also be worthwhile going to a couple of drum shops and having a chat to the salesmen there. They can also guide you with what is worth getting with in your budget. 

SECOND HAND DRUMKITS

It's worth checking on online for second-hand drumkits. Often you get everything you need, including a seat, spare drumsticks and drum books.
