Portable Drum Set < Please Help >
 
Hello Drummers around the world ..

My drumming addiction started 2 years ago , I used to have drum sticks and keep drumming on every solid flat I see , I didn't practice the drums , I just used to have fun with the sticks !
However 5 months ago , I started the pad training routine , Every day I practiced 2-3 hours
it felt good and I feel like it's time to reach a new level , I got sick of the sound of the Yamaha pad and the sound of my pillow as a tom tom and my couch as a snare and my bag as a hit hat !!

THE QUESTION :
I want a portable drum set because I travel a lot , and my budget is 400$ MAX !!
I wanted to buy the Ymaha DD-65 , but when I tried it , the double strokes sucked on it !!
and the sound wasn't satisfying at all !
So I need something similar , something that still can be useful in the future when I reach a high level ..
Thank you in advance : )

The simmons sdxpress compact might be an option for you. They're only $250. I've never played one, nor am I a fan of electric drums, but in your situation these might be a good option. If not, guitar center has a 15 or 30 day return policy, depending on the item. Utilize it! LoL

You need more money.

Try out the spd30 octapad. I've seen them go used for around $400 on eBay. I still enjoy playing mine.

Thanks man , It's a really cool set , but it seems complicated to me and you can't move your hands like you do with the ordinary drum set formation : (

It's not really confusing once you play with it. As for getting the feel of an actual kit, you'd need to spend a bit more to add an external hh/k/sn. The Roland TD4kp seems like what you're looking for but they're alot more($800) than your budget allows.

As stated earlier by Bo.... You need more money.

check out a used Yamaha DTX500. they're a tad more than $400 used nor are they the most portable, but it may be closest to what you're looking for in your range.

good luck.

Thank you friend , I actually saved some extra money ! my budget now is around 2500$ and I'm looking for an electronic drum set with an actual feel , you know it has the same feeling as the acoustic one !

I know many drummer would disagree with the term "acoustic feel" but I mean in my case that it has the same rebound sense , like the Roland TD 15KV , so what do you advice me to buy ???
Thank you

Is there some reason you're not considering an acoustic set?

You can get quality used gear well withing your range.

All you need for the acoustic feel is pads with mesh heads.


My advice is always, Roland/used

Yes there is , first I live with roommates in collage , so drumming with an acoustic set would be a suicide !! :P
Secondly , I guess an electric set would be good in my situation because I want it for practicing in number one and as long as it gives me a variety of sounds , I don't have to switch and add components to my set , I can practice/play any style with it .

I know that it won't feel the same , after all the acoustic set is the true instrument of the drummer , but it wont fit me very well currently : )

Thank you for replaying !

Mmmmm , well I would like to save some money and buy a used one , but as an electric drums , don't you think it's a bad thing to do ?! because if it's used , it might has lost its quality and more , it has an age an sensitivity range , right ?
