Info for a first e-drum set
Hi all, I'm looking to buy my first e-drum set (new or used). I've never drumed before but I've always wanted to drum.

The music I listen most goes from jazz/blues to heavy metal.

I'd like to buy a kit that I'll eventually be able to add parts until I have a drum like lars ulrich or nicko mcbrain.

I don't plan to play in a band but just for my own fun.

Any suggestion on the base kit I should buy ? On what I've read, yamaha gives you the most bang for the buck

What exactly is the budget?
I'd go with a 2box, if budget allows ...

I have a budget of a 1000$ for starting and in the following month/year adding pieces to have a big drum set (if i still like playing drum)

I don't plan to buy the whole ulrich / mcbrain drum kit at first

Keep in mind that an e-kit will serve you well for the metal side of things- not so much for jazz/ blues (you won't get those nuances you can get from an A-kit, especially if your budget is only $1000).

yeah I know that but i don't want to be kicked out of my appartment :(

For the jazz thing don't worry about it. I know it won't be the same thing as an accoustic one.

As long I have fun it's the most important thing.

For that price range, look for a used Roland or Yamaha (Roland's seem easier to find used on craigslist than Yamaha's)

Re: Info for a first e-drum set
I would start on an acoustic kit first.Way more responsive.Even the most expensive e-kits wont prepare you for what a true acoustic kit does.I am saying learning on the e-kit,makes it so you almost have to relearn again on an actual kit.
Try and get together with other drummers who have acoustic kits,and try and get time on them.Maybe you know someone who plays drums and and wants to learn guitar,and you could offer to play his drums while he gets to play along on his guitar.Would give you time to decide if you enjoy drums,around someone who could show you basics,on an actual kit,in an environment that allows it.You wouldnt feel pressured,because youre both beginners technically.
From there decide if youre a drummer,then go look at e-kits.You will find after playing the acoustic kit,that you may not even want an e-kit anymore.Kinda like getting a blow up doll after having a hot girlfriend.
