do you play regular drums? if not then i say get a good set of elecs or else you lose insturest quickly when the noises suck and dont work well

Don't cheap out. A good set can be one of the best buys you can make.
No man has the right to be an amateur in the matter of physical training. It is a shame for a man to grow old without seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable

if your going cheap, get a drum pad, or a synth. Not a digital set. A cheap digital set won't be worth the money.

use AVG as your anti-virus

I would suggest to stear clear of both and buy the basic package for fruity loops.

I don't own them but i have played them before.

They are good because you can get various sounds from them by changing the "voice".
You don't have to change heads, buy extra sticks, tune them.

Down side you need to have an AMP but this is UG so you obviously do.

I would recommend a Roland - i don't know the models but a Roland electric kit ive seen them going for £600!

Happy buying.

get a roland td-6 or similar. electronic drums are cool for about 2 hours, then soon the novelty wears off, and you realise they arent so dynamic. Much like a keytar.

And for those who say "oh electronic drums are great for practise", yeah maybe for learning to read music, but the heads have so much rebound, it gives you no idea what a real kit should sound like or feel, and when it comes to it, your wrists and fingers are so used to being pampered by dense neoprym pads, that they just cant work it.

No electronic drums sound good.

The toms sound like they are out of a cheesy 80's video and the cymbals have no dynamics regardless of price.


They suck for practicing too. You will have no feel for a real kit.



What he said. All the electric drums i have ever played they sounded like either crap or super cheesy 80's stuff.

Get an acoustic set, you can get such a better kit and have a real nice drumset.

I wouldn't reccomend getting an electronic set.
I believe in Rock and Roll. Can I get an Amen?

A drunk guy on the the bus asked me if i remembered the 60's. I told him i was 17 then he told me that everyone remembers the 60's.

I thought about it, and frankly, I couldn't fault his logic.
