the drum set was a transistion more then just a simple invention...

the story dates back to the age of silent films, when the score for the movie travelled with the film and local musicians had to be hired to play the parts... one musician probably noticed that if there was a way for him to play his snare drum with two hands, and play the easy bass drum part with his foot, he coud make some extra cash for the job. so he got someone to defign a bass drum pedel and he was now playing two instuments.. the same thing happend to the cymbols, instead of hitting them togeher with someomes hands, a hi hat was invented (although it was originally at knee level until Jo Jones raised it up and started hitting it with his sticks).. the rest is history.

What are the names of a drumset parts?

There are 6 parts of a drumset. On the left, there is the hi-hat. Next to it is the snare drum. Behind the snare drum is the crash cymbal. The big one on the bottom is the bass drum. The two drums connected to the bass drum are called a tom, and so is the drum on the right. In between 2 toms there is the ride cymbal. Sometimes a drumset has a cymbal connected to the bass drum called the splash.
