    A Drum kit means a set of drums, like you would see in a typical rock band. Usually consists of a Bass Drum with the foot pedal, a couple of floor tom-toms, a snare drum, a high hat (the two cymbols that come together with another foot pedal) and a couple of cymbols to hit (a crash and a ride). The "Kit" is the whole sheebang.

    Drum kit generally refers to a set of drums including one or more snares, a tom, bass, and one or more high-hat cymbols. Like you would see in a rock band.

    It's cool dude, great minds....

    Buzzard, Where in the DR are you located? In SD there are a few music stores on 30 de Marzo, also check the classified adds, of course.

    Default Drum Kit Responses

    First off, thanks so very much for the responses (both the query aa well as the two responses). The descriptions given, while differing in some small details, were, in the main, right on.
    As to my location, I'm in Costambar. Up until last October, I was able to avail myself of a drum set at the The Village Club, in Cabarete, were I played. Unfortunately, the club closed. I'm trying to either buy that kit, or something similar. While jazz is a scarce commodity in most areas, it is particularly rare in the DR. My devotion to that style of music is measured by my many trips from Costambar to Cabarete and back; a journey not lightly undertaken, as anyone who has made that trip at night can confirm. I can resume said playing in Cabarete, but first must have a drum set to play on!
    Thanks again for all your interest and help.

    HB, you're a stich! I assume you know that the basic merengue beat is supplied by the tambura, which resembles nothing as much as a large wooden beer keg, turned on its side, over which is stretched animal skins at both ends. I can just imagine buying the piece-parts: one wooden tub, two goat skins and three yards of cord!!!!!!

    Default And I forgot to ask if it referred to

    Brake drum kits.

    Oh well. Dude, that's "TAMBORA" and it takes a heck of a lot more than three yards of good manila rope!! Actually they prefer nail kegs, although some will use 30 pound oil cans for the tourists....."Primera, segunda, and pambichao!!"

    Now to your problem. I shall make a few inquiries around here and see. Fernando Giraldez is the exclusive Yamaha distributor, but he drives a huge SUV so I can imagine his prices are kinda high...but I'll check the classifieds for you and ask a few buddies...Maybe a note to MrMike can help you....he plays a fine guitar...

    And FYI Tuesdays are Jazz nites at Palermo Bar & Sandwich ...
