Default Re: Another 'electronic vs. acoustic' thread

First .... what's your budget?
All the claims of e-kits having sensitivity and real feel come with a hefty price. I'd look for a cheap Roland/Yamaha second hand. If jazz is your love, you're gonna need/want the feel of an acoustic kit. But, you have to walk before you can run. A cheap e-kit will give you practice time over a much wider part of your day. Once you get the arms and legs working ..... get an acoustic snare. And if possible, a hi-hat and ride cymbal. Incorporate those into your e-kit, you'll get dynamics out of your practice (and hopefully, the neighbors will be cool). When you're ready to step into a full acoustic kit, your snare, hi-hat and ride move into it.
