This is what a rookie Drummer but seasoned guitarist is starting with....

So, my setup--and I am just picking up drums after years of guitar/bass in jazz and rock--is a roland V-kit with all mesh heads--4 toms, 3 crashes, hhat, ride, that triggers addictive drums (i dont use the module kits) I also have Emulator x3 synth, reason, cubase 5, and I used an EMU-1616m and 0404 sound cards because of the versatility. For effects on this kit, I have a UAD-2 DSP card with channel strips/eq, etc, and a lexicon M400 outboard reverb. It has a GREAT drum sound--but you have to know how to set it up.....

My acoustics are 1) a 20x18 pearl reference bass 2) Pearl 3x13 brass piccolo snare and 3) pearl 14x6.5 Ian Paice Steel signature snare. I put Remo renaissance emperor heads on the snares and improved the sound 100% on both of them. I'll be picking up reference toms and cymbals for the acoustic kit--im done with the V-drum kit. Here are the pics.....

Quite a setup yo have going on there. Try not to rest your snare against the metal portion of the snare stand basket. Good luck!

That is primo gear for any level player.

Are you buying the drums used in pieces to save $ ? I did that with my Masterworks kit, turned a frankenkit into a real monster kit.

Well, I had started just wanting a good bass, snare and hi-hat--after hearing a really sick sounding reference kit I was hooked. I love drums, its like having a whole bunch of instruments.
