Re: Hey


You've heard drums played on CD's, ipods, at your friends. Won't you know whether you like the sound?

Play two different electronic drumsets? Does one sound better to you?

I should really ask you how much you have to spend on a drumset. Your pocketbook will help determine what quality drumset you can afford.

Re: Hey


I got around 500-1000$ to spend.
One more thing, is it better to take classes or to learn alone and if I need to learn alone, how ?

Re: Hey


My opinion is that it's better to take lessons. You get off to a good start that way, not developing any bad habits. Your instructor is your guide. You could buy sticks and a practice pad and take lessons, and you could learn a whole lot that way before you even bought your drumset. That's how I did it. Who knows, if you spent a year doing that, by the time you bought your drumset you might want something different than you want now.

If you try to learn yourself, you don't have an instructor to show you how to do things right and what's important. You end up doing things your own way and probably developing some bad habits. You could get books and stuff to help you, but you have no guide who knows what's right.

If you have up to $1000 to spend, then you have more electronic sets that you can afford.
You have more kits you can check out. Reading online reviews of electronic drumset would be a good idea, in addition to going in and playing the kits.

You've got a few things to think about.

Re: Hey


Em...on the website you linked me for the Simmons SD5K Electronic Drum Kit it says guaranteed lowest price but i found one at 399$ instead of 499$ O.o

499$ = Simmons SD5K Electronic Drum Kit and more Electronic Drum Sets at GuitarCenter.com.

399$ = Electronic Drums - ElectronicDrums.com (Frames)

Could you tell me if there is like more items in one instead of the other ?

Re: Hey


They have the same number, so they should be the same set. Guitar Center should honor the lower price if you show them the $399 website. Remember, you want to play that set before you buy it.

Re: Hey


Ok thanks
People says that a double-kick won't fit with the base drum pad can i buy an other bigger base drum pad alone ?
Or should i begin with only one and when i'll get better get a double-kick ?

Re: Hey


I hope some more guys will jump in with their opinions, but my understanding is that starting out, it's a good idea to have just one bass drum pedal -- a single. Learn with one foot first.
When you're good with one foot you can think about going double bass.

I don't know if you can buy a separate, bigger bass drum pad for that set. The salesmen will have to answer that. You may have to go to a different model or a different brand to get a bass drum pad that can handle two bass drum pedals. I know some Yamaha electronic sets can handle 2 pedals on the bass drum pad, but you may be in a substantially different price range with those.
