Talking Newww


Hey everyone! I was hoping you guys could give me a few tips on buying my first drum set. I'm real anxious to start, but I'm not even sure where to begin! Any Suggestions (what kind of drum set to get, where to go, how to start, etc..)

Thanks!!!

Re: Newww


If you are, I can see where your coming from Jessica.
I had the same problem when I started.
Heres a nice kit for $250 with cymbals and everything:
Buy Sound Percussion 5-Piece Junior Drum Set with Cymbals | Junior Drum Sets | Musician's Friend
If you don't like this one I found another for $630. It's probably the best one Possable for your situation.
Buy Tama Imperialstar 5-piece Standard Drum Set with Cymbals | Complete Drum Sets | Musician's Friend
I owned an SP at one time (before I got my Pearl)
and it lasted me 5 years.
I hope you like it!
Good Luck and Happy drumming!

Re: Newww


A junior kit is made smaller for very young drummers, I don't think this will work unless Jessica is 6 years old.

Re: Newww


soo... a JR set won't work, I'm 19
and yes $400 American.

I'm not sure if the quality of the drums really depends on the brand, but if you guys have suggestions on a certain company, I can look into it!

Thanks Again

Re: Newww


alright, heres a set i found for 500. i know its higher than the price you said, but i think it would be worth it to save a bit more and get this set, instead of a lesser brand. youll have to buy some cymbals, but this is what id get on your budget.

Re: Newww


I also recommended the Imperial star.
There are 2 models.
One with Meinl cymbals and one with Tama's cymbals which look pretty good.
It's for $630, But I think it will be the ONE of the best for you.
Here's the link:
Buy Tama Imperialstar 5-piece Standard Drum Set with Cymbals | Complete Drum Sets | Musician's Friend
Tama makes nice quality kits. I hope you like it!

Re: Newww


JESSICCA If you want a pretty decent set and you have $400.00 look into musicians friend they have some pretty good sets for that price. A few of my students bought Pulse drumsets it came with all the hardware and cymbals. The cymbals aren't the best but your not doing any gigs yet so they'll be just fine, and the drums sound really good I was surprised. You will find a few different sets of Pulse drums on Musicians friend I think they start at $200.00 But whatever you do DON'T buy a junior set. Let me know what you decide on and if I can be of further help.
GOOD LUCK SLINGERLAND
