Let's get started by taking a close look at the Drum Set Eastar 16" 5-Piece Kit. Next up is another Eastar product. This one is a bit bigger than the previous kit that we looked at. It’s composed of six pieces, which are two floor toms, a mounted tom, a bass drum, a snare, a straight cymbal, and a hi-hat. It also comes with a drum throne, bass pedal, and drumsticks.
Now we will have look at an alternative, the Mendini by Cecilio 16 inch 5-Piece Complete Kids Kit. Is your child an entry-level drummer with an eye towards one day going pro? The Mendini by Cecilio 16 inch 5-Piece Complete Kids' Kit is definitely the top choice for your beginner drummer. Think of it as a pro drum kit in a compact size, perfect for just starting out. If you want your child to have a realistic experience and learn the feel of a proper professional drum set, this is the one to get.
This kit is a beginner’s dream. Like the previous Eastar product, it is a scaled-down drumkit that performs just like a full-size kit. The compact size makes it ideal for any child who is too small for an adult’s kit. The throne is designed to withstand up to 220lbs, so parents can also have a practice when their child is at school.
