The drum kit is a very complicated instrument to set up properly. Tunings of heads (skins), heights of drums, pedal tension, snare tension, damping of the bass drum are all things that make a massive difference to sound and playability but no beginner knows much about any of these factors because they are beginners! I can visit you and set your kit up to feel and sound as good as it can and charge a one off fee of usually £20.
