The drum kit is a collection of instruments including drums and cymbals and other additional instruments that are grouped together and played by one musician.

The musician typically uses drum sticks in his hands and pedals at his feet to strike the various instruments. The drum kit emerged in the 1800s when a musician in an orchestra was required to play more than one instrument, most often the cymbals, triangle, and bass drum. The basic drum kit can have only three parts, but some include the snare drum, toms, bass drum, ride cymbals, hi-hats, crashes, effects cymbals, and additional instruments such as cowbells, wood blocks, gongs, chimes, triangles, tambourines, timbales, brake drums, buckets, and tubular bells, and many others.
