hey I've seriously been thinking of buying a set and learning some but I have not clue what is good and what is crap in terms of drums....can anyone help?
#2
Drums can be quite expensive, I recommend not cheaping out on those real basic starter kits, because they fall apart in a few weeks...not that I'm saying you should go get a Pearl Masters or DW or something lol
#4
I don't want the best, they don't even have to be great. But they would have to be you know somewhat good and last a good while...and not cost me like my life savings[too young to have a real job so I just have to work for my dad]

ya.. drums r expensive as sh it.. but if ur serious about it, u should get a pearl.. im not sure how much they r, but i have two friends who both have pretty nice set
sex, drugs, and rock and roll have turned into aids, needles, and techno..

I'd imagine you would start with basic rhythm work on just a snare before just jumping in and buying an entire set. You might feel overwhelmed.
Who dat?
#9
You'll probably have to have at least $500 to get a kit that is playable, but it still wouldnt be that great. Be sure to look into used drum sets.

I have a Ludwig I got for FREE!!!!!!!! My friend moved and doesn't have room for them.

I recommend getting a second hand set.

I mean like I can play simple stuff on a set...I'm not completely unfamiliar with them I just have never seriously wanted one until recently

Truth custom drums are fantastic but,expensive. Only get them if you're really serious after trying to play for a while.

Yea I was gonna be checking ebay and ask people if they know anyone selling and check pawn shops but I don't wana see a set thats cheap and buy it and then it end up being horrible so I wanted to get some help because I have no clue whats good or not
#18
Get a Tama Imperial Star. Lovely Kit.
all the world's indeed a stage and we are merely players
#19
Get a Groove Percussion. Only $300 for a quality kit that will get you through your first couple years of playing.
#20
My bro got a cheap kit used for $100 (hi-hat, crash, bass, 3 toms, snare). It's enough to learn on, and lots of fun to mess around with. I definitely recommend looking second-hand, especially for a first set.

Tama, even for the lower end price range, have some good sets.



The Tama Swingstar sets are inexpensive and get you a great bang for your buck.

Yeah, the Superstar sets are also pretty good for sets under $1000.

Also, the Imperialstars as well.

Either buy a really ****ty one (Like $200 or less)

Or shell out good money for a nice one. If you end up not liking it, you can sell it for decent money.

My friend has an electric set so the cymbals will suck once we start jamming so I'm planning on buying a cheap set and learning a little on it then he could use it......Just make sure you don't buy one that will fall apart after a few weeks....

I'd cheap out on the actual shells but get some nicer cymbals and hardware. Almost any modern shells won't sound half-bad if you put good heads on them and tune them properly.
