Hey there, my brother and myself have gotten into drumming (im like, beginning-intermediate and he's beginner) and we're looking for a good kit thats not too expensive, but with a half decent sound quality. budget is about 500$ ish (stretchable) preferably new, i play metal and my brother plays generic rock, will be ordering online. thanks guys!
For that sort of money I think you would be hard pressed to find a decent kit unless you find a really good bargain. I would recommend having a look for something used, your more likely to get a better kit for your money.
Electric or acoustic kit? For electric I suggest the Alesis DM6. Not sure about an acoustic kit though.
