Creating an online drum set can be a big help in creating the drum set of your future. Mapping out which drums you would like to own and how to set them up is a mouse click away. The best online drum kit creator is at the Drum Workshop "Kit Builder" website. Not only does this site allow you to choose drum sizes but also has many colours and hardware styles to choose from as well.

  1. 1

    Visit the DW Kit Builder website included in the references section. Make sure you have Adobe flash installed on your computer. If you don't have it, you can get it from the kit builder website.

  2. 2

    When you are at the site a new window should launch automatically. If not, choose the "click here" button and the new window will launch.

  3. 3

    Choose the size of bass drum you would like to own and click "add drum." Repeat this process with all of your toms, and snare drums. Not only will you be allowed to choose drum sizes, but also choose drum depths as well.

  4. 4

    Now choose the hardware you would like on your dream set. Make sure to include any necessary pedals and a throne.

  5. 5

    Choose the type of shell you would like for your drums.

  6. 6

    Choose the colour you would like for your drums. Keep in mind that before you choose the colour you must specify which type of finish you want. DW offers finish ply, satin oil, lacquer, graphics and hard satin, among others. Once you choose a finish the colours will come up and you can choose one.

  7. 7

    Now that your dream drums have been conceived and built online you can make a picture, print the kit, or even get a price quote for your kit.

Tips and warnings

  • Experiment with different types of shell colour and hardware colour combination.
