12”, 13”, 16” Toms, 22” Bass Drum, and 5.5” Snare drum. This set up is very typical on a lot of drum sets. This set up is great for louder music and works well for pep bands at school.
Fusion kits are typically 10”, 12”, 14” Toms, 20” or 22” Bass Drum, and a 5.5” Snare drum. These are great general drum sets that can be used in many different situations. They work well for school setting that need a jazz drum set and a pep band drum set. They have smaller drums that may fit a beginning drummer or someone who is looking for a smaller kit for gigs.
