"Thank you so much! I bought this drum set and was very confused when looking at the manual, so searched up some assembly videos. This video was a life saver!"

"Thank you for this video. I got my son the same set of drums for Christmas and he was able to put it together himself with your video."

"Thank you!! This was so helpful and the only way I could have put together this kit on my own for my daughter's Christmas present."

You may find that it's not as daunting as it might initially seem, and many manufacturers do a great job of pre-assembling the trickier items, such as the snare drum. If you buy your drums online, there's no getting around the fact that you have to piece the drums together yourself, and this is where your friendly local drum retailer can be an absolute champion. Many offer a build and tune service for a small extra fee, and it's money well spent if you don't want to deal with this yourself. While the assembly is not as difficult as you might have imagined, the tuning can be a little challenging. A good drum specialist, or a local drum teacher can help you with this.
