Alright, I wanna start playing drums (I currently play guitar, and I don't plan on quitting), and I was just wondering, with a budget of about $300 (plus whatever money I can front myself, this is going to be my Christmas gift), so, a total budget of possibly $400-500-ish (American Dollars), what can/should I get? I play mostly hard rock/metal, but does that factor in for drums?

Like, companies, kit size, etc, etc.


Should I buy from the store (Guitar Center), or get it online? Do you think anyone will have nice sales for the holidays?


Thanks, and lemme know if you need more info.

EDIT: I do not want an electonic kit, maybe I should've specified that.

Electronic drum sets are lame and no fun... only good for apartments with bitchy neighbors imo..
Most people on UG aren't very nice.

That is my signature.

This is true.

I agree, especially now that drum tabs are allowed on the site.

Yeah, I definitely think a drum forum should be made, especially now that UG has drum tabs.

EDIT: Haha, the guy above me beat me to it.

Find a friend that has one and ask him to teach you?

Join school band or something similer?

Those are my only suggestions.
