10 Best D2 Drum Sets
for December 2022

MOOZ Themes editors select recommendations independently, so your purchase through our link may earn us a commission.

A drum kit, or drum set, is an instrument played by striking one or more drums, usually with sticks, and sounding the drumhead with hand drums. Drum sets consist of the drums, a bass drum, a snare drum, a tom drum, a hi-hat, cymbals, and a throne, which the player sits on.

A drum set is a great investment for any musician, whether they're just starting out or a seasoned pro. A drum kit provides endless opportunities for learning to play different songs, as well as building rhythm and timing.

The MOOZ Themes Reviews Lab has tested hundreds of drums over the years. We evaluate drums for durability, sound, and ease of use, as well as construction details like frame and hardware. We also test drums for performance factors like volume, resonance, and tone.

We've rounded up the best drum kits you can buy in 2022, according to testing, popular reviews, and expert recommendations. Here are the best drum kits:

by Eastar

High-quality drum skin, the drum skin of Eastar's 3-drum set has been selected, the transparent skin for the tom drum and the bass drum, and the frosted surface of the snare drum is white frosted skin (the frosted skin is easy to stain, which is normal thing).

The Eastar Drum Set 16 inch 3-Piece, Junior Drum Set Kit with Throne, Cymbal, Pedal & Drumsticks, Mirror Black (EDS-285B) is an excellent starter drum set for young players. The set is easy to assemble, and the drums and hardware are of good quality. The 10 inch and 5 inch drums have decent sound and durability, while the 8 inch tom has a beautiful, deep tone.

Costzon 16” Kids Drum Set

Great Drum Material for Great Sound: The drums have a 9-layer poplar shell to deliver a more energetic sound. Providing a larger and deeper resonance chamber, a strengthened drum cavity is able to make the overtones diffuse slowly and enhance the tone. Besides, the premium drum skins with larger tension and vibration also help achieve an ultimate acoustic experience.

The Costzon 5-Piece 16” Kids Drum Set is very attractive, with a high gloss and shiny outlook. It matches any decorating style, either modern or traditional. The frame is made of electroplated steel, which guarantees no rust, more wear-resistance for lasting quality. The 5-piece instrument set is advocated for kids over 3 to 12 years old to have their first musical enlightenment and also for advanced training.

Alesis Drums Nitro Mesh Kit Bundle – Complete Electric Drum Set With an Eight-Piece Mesh Electronic Drum Kit, Drum Throne, Headphones and Drum Sticks

Alesis Drums Nitro Mesh Kit Bundle – Complete Electric Set Drum With an Eight-Piece Mesh Electronic Drum Kit

In-Demand Sound - Nitro Drum Module with 40 ready-to-play classic and modern electronic drum kits & acoustic drum sets, 60 play-along tracks and 350+ expertly curated sounds

The Alesis Nitro Mesh Kit Bundle is an outstanding value. The included drum kit offers a more solid feel than some mesh kits we've tested, and its sound is punchy, clear and warm. The snare, tom and cymbal pads are responsive, and on-ear headphones make monitoring your performance easy. The snare has a recessed rim, and the kick drum is deep, responsive and delivers plenty of low-end. The kit's included performance recorder is also one of the best we've seen, offering extensive editing and recording features. The kit's sequencer features 60 play-along tracks, 60 free Melodics lessons, a metronome and a performance recorder, and it's an excellent learning tool. The kit's kits also feature Bluetooth capability, so you can use the kit as a speaker for your phone or a tablet. The kit's power supply and on-ear headphones are unobtrusive, and the kit's performance was so good that we didn't notice any latency. The kit's included cables are short, so you'll have to invest in longer ones if you want to use the kit at home. The included power supply is large, so it won't fit in the included carry bag. The kit's stand is sturdy but isn't adjustable, so it won't be a good fit for every drummer.

Alesis Drums Turbo Mesh Kit – Electric Drum Set With 100+ Sounds, Mesh Drum Pads, Drum Sticks, Connection Cables and 60 Melodics Lessons

Alesis Drums Turbo Mesh Kit – Drum Electric Set With 100+ Sounds

by inMusic Brands inc.

Powerful Educational Features - 30 built-in play-along tracks, metronome, Aux input and drum coach help to hone and develop your drum skills

The Alesis Turbo Mesh Kit is a surprisingly affordable electronic drum kit that provides a very realistic drumming experience. It's well-made, easy to set up, and sounds pretty good. The kit comes with 10 different drum kits that sound like classic and modern kits, and the 100 sounds are pretty good, too. The Turbo Drum Module has 30 play-along tracks, and the built-in metronome is a nice touch. The included drum set is made of all mesh, which is more realistic than plastic and more realistic than wood. The Turbo Mesh Kit also includes the Turbo Drum Module itself, a 5" mesh snare drum, an 8" mesh toms, a 10" mesh hi-hat cymbal, and a kick pedal. The kit is small enough that it can fit on a kitchen counter or under a kitchen table, and the included power supply is powerful enough to power the whole kit (even the hi-hat pedal). The Turbo Drum Module also connects to your iPad or iPhone (using an optional Lightning to USB adapter), and the app that comes with the kit provides some great built-in lessons that help you learn how to play the drums. The Turbo Mesh Kit may not be perfect -- some of the sounds are lower quality than we'd like, and the kick pedal is flimsy, so it isn't as sturdy as we'd like -- but it's an affordable, well-made kit, and it's definitely worth giving a try.

The Ludwig Accent Drive is one of the best values in the percussion world, and we easily recommend it to anyone looking for a starter set. While a 5-piece kit might seem limiting, it's perfect for young players, and it includes the snare, so it's ideal for drummers of any age. The Accent Drive is easy to set up, and the kit plays very well, with some great tone. The bass drum has a fairly punchy tone, and the toms are resonant, though the toms are a bit muffled by the bass drum. The snare is very crisp, but it didn't sound as full as the one on our previous pick. The Accent Drive's hardware is well-made, and the pedals are sturdy and comfortable. The included throne is sturdy, but it was a bit small for an adult, and the drums could stand to be a bit louder. The Accent Drive's cymbals are decent but unremarkable. The Accent Drive comes with everything you need to start drumming, and it comes with a lot of bang for the buck.
