Re: First E Kit - DTXExpress?
Well I found a used Yamaha DTX500k for sale at Guitar Center for $350. I even got them to throw in a new kick pedal. Also spent $40 for the 1 year warranty which seemed like a good idea for used equipment. So after all that and tax/shipping I paid a total of $440.
I ended up spending about a hundred more than my original budget, which seems to be par for the course when buying musical gear. but I think i will be pretty happy with this kit. Its newer than the e kits I was considering before and should be more reliable and have more features. At least I hope so...Looking forward to getting a chance to play around with it in a few days.
