Re: Deciding on first electronic drum set - need advice
I agree with Davo.
I've owned a Roland TD-12 and together with the relatively cheap (price wise) V Expressions LTD kits, it sounded great. Much, much better than the stock sounds that come with the Roland module.
There's no need to buy new. Many drummers buy electronic kits either because they are new to drumming or because their living situation wont allow for a loud acoustic kit. Those kits are often temporary and end up being sold cheaply in very good condition. Check out CraigsList first.
