Drum Sets by Brand Electronic by Brand
A drum set or drum kit usually consists of five or six different pieces.  Using drum sticks or mallets to strike the drums causes the instruments vibration to broadcast the sound.  Pearl and Yamaha tend to be the more popular brands for those starting out. Electronic drums make their sound from electronic waveforms and not acoustic vibration.  Because of this, they tend to be more expensive than traditional drum sets and they only generate an approximation what traditional drum sets offer.

Drumsticks and Accessories Mallets by Brand
Drum sticks have different shapes and sizes from the time to the barrel.  The tip of a drumstick is called the bead.  The tip is what strikes the drum and the shoulder is below the tip.  The shaft is the rest of the drumstick where you hold on. A percussion mallet is a drum stick but comes in specialized versions for bigger percussion instruments.  It's parts are similar to a traditional drumstick yet tends to have a different head or bead.

Bongos and Stands
Bongos come from Cuba and are a percussion instrument made of open air drums attached to each other.  Most Bongos are simply played by using your hands and often go along with Cuban music.  Bongos produce a higher pitched sound than other drums like a Congo drum.  There are times a drum stick can be used with Bongos.
