Inside the boxes, you'll find the snare drum, bass drum, and toms that make up a drum set. If included in your purchase, you will also see your hardware set and cymbals. Did you remember your drum sticks? They are often not included, believe it or not.

You may find that, with guidance, assembling a drum set is not as daunting as it might initially seem. Many manufacturers do a great job of pre-assembling the trickier items, such as the snare drum. While the assembly is not as complex as you might have imagined, the tuning and positioning of the drums and cymbals can be a little challenging at first.
