Drums & Percussion/Starter Drum Set


I purchased a Cannon Jamm 3 pc set for my son, he has started taking lessons and hates practicing at home because he is used to the 5 pc he uses during his lessons. Can I by the two missing drums and add onto this set? If so, where can I find them sold individually?

Thank you very much for the question. I hate to say it but I don't think you will be able to find the additional drums for this set.  You can find drums that would roughly match this set from other brands, but you would end up paying as much for those drums as you would for the set you already have.  By the time you did that, you would be better off starting from scratch and getting a better quality used drum set.
If your son has a good teacher he should be able to guide you on the right path in finding the right set for your son. If your son is a beginner then the drum set you have should meet his needs.  The drum set will feel different than his teacher's set, but he should have plenty to learn and play on his set and wouldn't need the extra drums.  You're in a tough spot, you want to give him the tools to learn and keep him motivated, but really that drum set should meet his needs.  I hope this answers your question.  Feel free to ask follow up questions.
