I am looking to get another instrument, I currently play the guitar and am only interested in one man bands, so I have to get more gear to record. Now, my budget is around 800 bucks. Should I get a bass:

And program the drums, until I save up enough to buy an electronic drumkit?

Or should I buy these drums:

And program the bass until I get enough to get the bass? This is for a metal band really. Let me know what your opinions are, thanks!

Plus there is the whole playing ability thing...I cant do anything on the drums except blast really fast with my hands, but no footwork. But on the bass, I can play it already cuz I used to use the one provided where I gave lessons

Any help appreciated

You should be able to get both.. I seen some decent kits for around $500, then just ebay a $300 good bass.

I got a Schecter Custom 4 for $250...

Definitely the bass. You already have experience, and programming drums sounds a lot more normal. Meshuggah programmed the drums on their last album and just used samples in their recordings, I think.

Why would they program the drums when they have a drummer?

drums. they'll take longer to learn, and once you get the bass you'll have no need to 'learn' it because learning how to play guitar is learning how to play bass, essentially.

Or play an instrument that doesnt follow the generic rock band formula and fit into your band?



What.....? Read: Its a ONE man band. (eg: Me. Only me). I can very easily fit in with myself, thanks. And its not generic rock, its metal dummy.

They seemed to be able to fit a variety of different instruments in and make it work well.



They also look like scene losers and wear girl pants, not to mention the songs are entirely made up of simple, stupid open chord breakdowns and the song sucks.

No, I dont want to suck.

So I just leave the report button alone

If you're going to do everything yourself I suggest you save up for an electric drum kit with midi connectivity.
