    Default 24 bass drum for small kid ?

    My nephew is about 5-6 tall and wants a 24 bass drum. Dumb question, is he too short for a 24 inch when you factor in the height of the rack toms? I thought i read that on one of the forums.

    He wants what he wants.
    If he’s a beginner, I’d say I don’t think so.
    A Ludwig Breakbeats kit would be more like it. IMO

    A 24” doesnt make a difference when you factor in his height? In other words, its not harder to reach the racks on a 24 opposed to a 22?

    Sure it does but one can offset the tom/toms on separate stands to make it work if needed. OR
    You could do a Stanton Moore type setup with the big bass drum off to the side.

    Really? Are you sure about that?

    Everyone loves FREE... like this free drum forum. But like your car and even your drums, they require upkeep and maintenance and that requires money.

    Will you consider Shopping at Drum Bum to help support this forum?

    Or make a donation here.



    I know from working with Drum Bum through the years, that this forum is costly to run. It requires server fees, hosting, ongoing moderation, advertising, software upgrades, security certificates and IT work when it breaks. All in addition to the expenses that come from running a business. These costs are offset (hopefully) by members that click through to Drum Bum to make a purchase now and then, if not make a contribution to help keep it running.

    On behalf of Drum Bum, thank you for your consideration.

    I used a vintage Slingerland kit once a week for years, it was a 13", 16", 18", 24" setup. I'm 5' 6". (I'm a small kid disguised as a sixty year old man.) lol.

    It was never an issue.
