http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drum_kit What is the drum kit? The drum kit isn't just one instrument, but a collection of drums and cymbals played by a drummer. The average drum kit contains a snare drum, a bass drum, a high hat, the tom-toms, the floor tom and the crash and ride cymbals. The modern drum kit originated from the timpani and was first made in America in the 1930s in the Vaudeville era. In the orchestra and military, the snare drum, the bass drum and cymbals were all played separately by one musian with hand-held drum sticks. During WW1 drum kits consisted of a bass drum surrounded by a verity of percussion instruments and by the 1930s the drum kit had all the basic parts of the modern drum kit, expect the ride and crash cymbals and around this period people like Ben Duncan where making the drum kit popular. The first drummer to lead an orchestra was Gene Krupa and by 1962, the drum kit entered the musical world of Rock and Roll. During this time and on, different forms of drum kits were appearing, certain drummers would add on many more drums or cymbals or other percussion instruments.
