Online Guides: Drum Shells

In our online guide, we want to look at the modern drum set from every angle.

There is no instrument in contemporary music which is so complex in its construction as a modern drum set. Innumerable individual parts, made from a huge variety of different materials, and available in many different sizes. It's easy to get lost in all this choice, and not just for beginners!

In our online guide, we want to look at the modern drum set from all angles, and in doing so we will be dealing with really interesting topics, such as the materials used in construction, the effect the various shell sizes and bearing edges have on the sound, and the different types of drum skins. We will also give you advice on assembling your own personalised set-up from the different components. As you can see, there's a lot to learn!

Have fun researching the world of drum sets!
