A drum set is a configuration of different sized drums, generally consisting of a snare drum, bass drum, and three toms.

There are two different set styles, the most common being the rock configuration. These have 12, 14, and 16 inch toms, usually a 22" bass drum, 14" snare, and 14" hi-hats. The other set-up is the fusion configuration. The toms are 10, 12, and 14 inches, the bass drum is usually 18", and hi-hats are generally 13 inches.

The rock configuration uses the bigger and deeper toms for a more full effect, a taller bass drum for a more "punchier" feel, and 14" hi-hats for a controlled splash. Some rock sets even have larger toms, so that there are 2 floor toms.

Fusion sets, most commonly used for jazz, on the other hand, have smaller toms to create less of a punch, but the toms are only 2 inches apart from each other, so they are more uniform. The Smaller bass drum and hi-hats are used for a controlled, responsive feel.

While drumming may just look like random smashing that takes no talent whatsoever, this is completely untrue. Drumming is in fact a talent, as it takes great co-ordination to have all four of your limbs doing different actions at once. Drummers also have to have great timing, since they are the driving force in a band's backbone.
A drum set is a necessity to any band

A sexual act involving a man penetrating a woman in the anus and immediately before male ejaculation the man inserts his penis into the female's ear and 'blows his load' into her orifice. He then proceeds to 'stir fry' the 'spunk' into her 'drum set' with his member.
