i prefer acoustic sets, you can add on more drums as you go alonf a lot more easier then electric and there is a certain feel that i like better in acoustic sets. but you can make different sounds with electric sets. also a basic acoustic set is most likely cheaper

i had one, very convenient. i got some yamaha one, but i got ripped off, and spent close to 1k? i think you can get it now for 800 or so, but i wouldnt go cheap on em. its really good if you wanna learn and will be dedicated because you can practice anytime, and using headphones is fun while palying with em. you can play to preset songs, even record for yourself through a direct plug in. the downside is that its sometimes hard to jam with people, cause it doesnt sound as good. but i borrowed my friends set for shows and such, and practifced on my electric so i was good to go. overall its a good investment if you know you will play, and youd'd end up spending maybe 800-1.5k, so make sure youd really use it!
dude, what about an actual solo in death metal instead of that poof from linkin park. Think of Pulse of the Maggots - Bed Of Razors

first thing you need to know before buying a kit.

Use a metronome. If you don't, you'll end up "Tech" death. Noone wants that.

Second, you could either buy it seperatly from Drum city guitarland or buy from a local music shop. :]

acoustic-about $500 for an all right set, nuthin spectacular
but i dunno too much about drums, but they are really fun to play
before you buy drums, make sure you know how to count and hold a steady beat, a drummer is worthless if he/she can't hold time

get used mapex birch
bliss and wuhan cymbals (amazing value)
mapex janus double pedal

all about $700 in total and will be almost pro quality.

i have mapex saturns and a roland td12 which cost £2k. what you can do if you have a good pc is get a usb drumkit and just use drumkit from hell of torrentspyy..meshuggah record with drumkit from hell they dont use live drums.

just get used, for a beginner, its a smart thing to do if you want to get something decent without spending too much money. You'll just have to search for one

You mean you don't wanna be a musician anymore?




why did the guitarist put drumsticks on his dashboard?


so he can park in the handicapped spots!
