hey


Hey my names Donovan,I'm 15 years old, I live in Colorado and love drumming.I joined this forum to help get some opinions on what drumset I should get.
Ive been playing for almost 3 years now and I'm pretty good.I have a Ludwig accent combo that I got for about $250 and it allegedly was in the smashing pumpkins video 1979.ive been looking into selling this set because Im starting to get serious about drumming after I joined my band and I'm looking to upgrade to a better kit.
I'm looking into getting the alesis dm8 usb kit or the alesis dm6.I don't want to spend a lot of money but I don't want a crappy kit for a low price either.I figured one of these would be alright because they aren't too expensive and they're not cheap.ive been reading up on them and Ive heard they are nice outs.I'm leaning towards the dm8 because its more of an intermediate kit and thts wat I'm going for.
Opinions?

Hey Donovan, welcome. I'm not a big electronics guy and perhaps you can help some of us who are new to electronics, with the electronics knowledge. I'll take a look at the alesis dm6 and dm8 today and try to get a note to you after researching the 2 units you're referring to.
Good to have you here!

hey cool thanks for the reply.once I do get my kit id be more than happy to help.this will be MY first electronic kit but I play one in my band.I'm leaning more towards the dm8 because it is for more serious players.ive been looking around and found out the lowest for a dm8 I could find is $550 and dm6 is $400. So I'm going to save the extra cash and get a dm8.but ill keep you guys informed about electronics and stuff cuz I too am kinda new to it.

Hi Donovan,

This link is probably worth a look! It's here Did I make a mistake in buying the DM6? - DMdrummer.com forum

LMK if that's of any use to you!
