Electric drum sets


I'm currently living in an apartment and am looking into some electric drum sets to practice on. It's really hard to play a regular kit here without getting noise complaints so it'd be wise to invest in an electric kit to practice on. I was leaning towards some Pintechs because they seem to be the best value. I know Roland is probaly the top brand but it goes way over my budget.

Does anyone here have an electric drum set? How are they and what would you suggest?

If you get an electric set, get a GOOD electric set. Cheap ones sound horrible. Definately get the best one for your budget range.

I know drumbalaya.com has some good deals.

It's fairly easy to make an electronic kit out of a practice kit, a sound module and some cheap electronic components. I made one for about 250 ($450). Ok, so you won't get the technology and quality you get at a higher budget, but if it's just for practice where noise is an issue, it couldn't be better.

If you're interested, I'll put together an explanation. In fact, I'll do an article on the subject.

That would be really really helpful actually. I'm not going to do any gigs with the electric kit. I just want something decent that will resemble an acoustic kit for practice. Any explanations or articles would be great. Thanks Dave.

Ok, sit tight - I've got a busy week in the studio this week but I'll try and get something together asap.

There are some websites around that explain how to make electric drum pads if you go searching.

Yamaha DTXIII basic kit is a good cheap unit. Steer clear of Legend kits, they can't keep up with any rolls at all.

You might try looking into an electric/electronic Yamaha kit. They offer quite a few kit variations, sounds and effects and generally cost (new, at least) around $1000. Guitar center carries them regulary and they tend to have reasonably low prices. Check them out, you might like them. Happy hunting!
