Acoustic Drum Kits – Shell Packs & Full Kits

The Shell Pack

An Acoustic Drum Kit Shell Pack usually includes only the bass drum and the toms. The snare drum, the stands, and the pedals are bought separately. Shell Packs are popular because most drummers have very specific preferences for the snare drum, pedals, and other hardware they use.?Normally you get all the drums but you do not get any other stands and cymbals.

The term acoustic drum kit “Shell Pack” sounds like you are getting the?shells not drums but it should include the?drum?shells, lugs, hoops, heads, legs etc..most have the hardware needed to mount the drums and a snare. Some do not.

The Full Set

Many kits come with everything you need including all the stands, pedals, and drums. Many also include a set of cymbals. You may well still have to assemble your new kit even if it’s a full kit.

Here’s a couple of videos that show how to assemble an acoustic drum kit out of the box and how to pack one away for postage.

 

Watch the Video for more information !

 

Here’s a huge range of the latest drum kits from Ludwig, Pearl, Mapex, Natal, Sonor, Yamaha and last, but very definitely not least …. Gretsch.

Some of the Drum Kits below are Shell Sets and some are full sets.
