Yay, good for you! Be careful with "seriously" though: if they're anything like me they'll think "Career - yikes!" Try something like "I want to do it properly".

My first kit was a Yamaha DTXplorer or something. I don't know what it cost new because it was a present, but I sold it last Christmas for 250 which I think was rather a lot, as I know somebody who bought one for 180, so I'd imagine you could pick one up for what you have to spend. It did the job, but there are better ones, although they come with a hefty price tag.

Good luck - let us know how you get on :)
