    Cymbals add spice and consistency to a drum kit. While the snare, bass, and tom drums handle the main rhythms, cymbals accent important beats and keep a steady beat on the hi hat. A set is a great way to get a few cymbals for a new drum kit or drummer. The most basic sets come with the drum kit essentials: a hi hat, ride, and at least one crash cymbal. More expensive options will build upon this with extra crash, splash, or china cymbals for different effects. You will find many price points with professional kits being more expensive. Budget-friendly sets are better suited for smaller kids or beginning drummers.
