Starting teh drums
 
Well I'm a first timer when it comes to drumming but I have most of the basics down. I already know how to get better and all that I just need to know what would be the right set for me. I intend to start with a small kit and add on till I get a really good set. Any reccomendations for a good set?

Your best bet, is ask a drummer. They know what they like, they know what will work as a starter.
If your gonna build on, buy a decent quality brand that will last long enough to grow with.
The better built, the better they sound. Cheap sounds cheap.

Actually, the Pearl for $300 looks good, its regularly $650 Not bad for a starter.
(I would still ask a drummers opinion)

if you ever want to be really good you should start learning some rudimental stuff before you just jump on the set and pretend to be a drummer.

Definately buy yourself a beatpad and sticks and practice, practice, practice. If you can read music pick up some sheet and even an instructional video for technique.

Get a practise pad and just practise practise practise. Get some sticks, 5As are good for begginners.

As for a kit, perhaps look second hand for your first kit.

Oh man dont even start!

What are you looking for, there are so amny possiblities out there.

I personally like to keep my set clean and small. I have a Yamaha Rydeen set. Its ok, could do better for the price. Ok how much are you planning on spending. This is my drum teachers set, the thing is soo friggin cool I want it soo bbad. Its one of the yamaha hip gig sets. Small and sweet. Hes able to put that thing into like two cases. It sounds grewat. Its like 1500 though. But kits range in all different ways from color to wood to heads to hardware etc. Go to your local Guitar center. They should have used sets that are just the drums and you ahve to buy the hardware. Start with that and you can get a good set for about 300 and put about 100 into hardware maybbe more if you get cymbals. Basically you want a ride cymbal and hi hats. That is bare minimum, I personally have a crash a ride and hi hats. I got my crash and ride for free, but paid for the hihats.

Juyst go to guitar center, or whatver place has a good selection of drums, decide how much you want to spend and go from there. hapopy drumming.


Oh if you havent noticed I am a drummer. :D

The snare and cymbols are where it's at. Don't go cheep on those and your sound will be good.

I know I know rush is a little mis leading... But I can go for the double base pedal and have my set still be discreet :D

That last pic resembles my brothers DW jazz kit. Who knew drums could be so expensive. He paid $3500
for a used set. Cherry wood fade to black, just beautiful. Wish I pics to post.

it sucks because there is no way (or at least I dont kn ow it) to post the full size pic of the kit builder sets. Its anoying. dw are good, but way over priced in my view.
