Yamaha DTXplorer

I teach on two top of the range Roland TD-17 KVX electronic drum kits (top video) positioned side by side, so it doesn't matter if you're right or left handed, I have a set up for you.  For children between the ages of 5 and 7, I use a dedicated Yamaha DTXplorer (bottom image).  It's a top quality and very durable kit and is a perfect starter kit for little drummer boys and girls!  I also have an acoustic set up for more advanced players but I will be upgrading this in the near future to the Tama 'Star' Maple kit, which is as 'top of the line' as you can get.  


Each TD-17 has its own dedicated Alesis Strike 12 Amplifier, which has an enormous 2000 watts of power and is specifically designed for all electronic drums in including Roland but can equally be used for acoustic set ups too. It is THE best drum amplifier on the market and it'll take your playing experience to a whole other level of enjoyment.  I also use Vic Firth Stereo Isolation Headphones which are the best you can get and reduce the sound by 25 decibels, so if you're concerned about ear damage, do worry, I have the best ear protection...designed by drummers, for drummers and will accommodate all age ranges and sizes.
