* This is a guide, please consider other factors which may be relevant, such as what chair you are siting on while playing. For example, if you sit on a tall chair then you probably need a taller drum.
Keep in mind young drummers can grow fast, so consider getting a drum they can grow into and enjoy in years to come!
