    Default How much floor space do drum sets generally take up???

    I was just wondering if anyone could let me know about how much floor space a 5 piece drumset would take up? My son wants a set for xmas and i want to make sure there will be enough room in his bedroom. Thank You!!

    I think that mine is about 7'x7' tops. It might be a little wider than it is deep, so maybe 7' wide and 5' deep.

    It really all depends on the size of your kit. Terry Bozzio wouldn't exactly be the most comfortable chap in the land if he had a 5'x5' space. Me on the other hand... I would be fine in that. It's all a matter of size and preference.

    Thank you all very much! That helps a lot and it sounds like he has the space in his room. He just may be getting one

    I'd say looking at my set at this very moment and 6' X 6' would be good, letting the cymbal stand leg spread and cymbals space to move ie.: hi-hat, ride, china.

    he DID say a 5 piece kit. If you want some reference, look ]here , it's my set, 5 piece. I hope you get a rough idea of the space you'd need.

    I used to set up weekly on a church "stage" of six 4' X 8' risers and my footprint, as crammed back as I could get and not be nervous about accidentally slipping off of the back, was about a 6' X 6' footprint for my 5 piece, fusion sized kit. I think that 7' X 7' is better, but it can be done in 6' X 6'.

    I built a 5" riser in the basement 6' x 8' (in case we got water) and it is perfect.
