If you can afford it, get drums with mesh heads, they feel more realistic and have a better bounce.

When you hit the 'drum' it sends a signal to drum module that plays the sound that you've associated with that 'drum'. Nicer kits will have multiple zones on the drum head (or cymbal) so you can get different sounds from the drum/cymbal. Like playing the bell of a cymbal vs the bow.

This is me playing at set of Rolands. Notice the two different sounds from the same cymbal at :24.

PS - I'm not a drummer. I know I suck.

The new line of roland Edrums sound AMAZING! as in, you dont have to drop $3000 anymore on a good head. I tried the lower end one (the tdx4) and it felt and sounded great for practice.


in fact,

Im buying one very soon, im selling my acoustic kit for it because the acoustic kit is way to loud and not practical for my uses.

You can start with the Roland Td8 or Td 12. These kits are awesome. You'll need only a pair of nice headphones or an amp to get its sound

I heard this set in action and it works/sounds great:

I can plug the drums module to any sound speakers system and you will be able to hear your drum playing.

I have a similar set that I use as a MIDI controller. Basically, the drums are connected to a drum "Brain" which is connected via MIDI to my Recording Interface (Tascam Fire One) and controls drum sounds via software in Logic or Garage Band. That way, I can use the drums to trigger sounds in various plugins like EZdrummer which has very spiff drum samples.

I think it's a GREAT idea to learn to play drums as a guitar player. Few things will help you with your sense of timing, pace, tempo, and cadence like learning drums. I learned drums, and bass guitar and it seriously helped my guitar playing.

Practice!
Todd

And don't forget, it's just a lot of fun to play drums, pretending to be The Rev (A7X) or Neil Peart... biggrin.gif eventhough you may be miles away from those kind of skills. I love the physical part of drumming. I suck at it, but really love to jam along on my Roland, double bass drumming and everything... smile.gif

Roland or Yamaha make great kits that are very suitable for practicing. It's best to try them in the store and see how they behave. Try them as much as you can and compare, it will be easier to buy. You need headphones too.
