Re: Is it crazy for a beginner to get the DTX700?
The DTX 700 option is not crazy, just expensive. Four years ago I returned to drumming. I bought the top of the line Yamaha E kit. Played the snot out of it for 6 months. Next, I bought an acoustic set fell in love with the real thing and never looked back. If I had a do over, I'd rather put the extra money ($1500?) into a better kit and used pro level cymbals. Most folks don't prefer electric kits. You probably won't want to gig with them either. BTW I don't use 1/100ths of my modules capabilities nor do I want to, too much hassle and just not satisfying. Sorry E guys, just one mans opinion.
