Default Electronic Drum Set

Hello i feel dumb saying this but what got me into drums is the game "rock band" and from that i purchased the "Ion Drum Rocker" i am slowly trying to get more into actually drumming and not playing the game as much. The reason i have stuck to the game for so long is because it is generally quieter and that is the biggest concern with getting an acoustic set so i will refrain until i have better conditions to which could be anywhere from 4 to 5 years unfortunately. In the mean time i plan on purchasing some new gear for this ion drum rocker and right now what i plan on getting is: VisuLite Cymbal package from pintech, Yamaha DTXplorer for a module, DW DP402 Double Bass Drum Pedal, and Roland KD-8 Kick Trigger Pad. Does anyone know of anything i could change for cheaper and better because i don't want to buy something and regret it. So far this set up seems the most reasonable for me to get but if anybody knows of anything that could be potentially cheaper and better. Thanks everybody

Save up a bit more and buy a more reputable, better quality electronic kit all together. Roland sells some nice little kits for starting out.

Here is the HD-1, that also solves your double bass needs. The hi hat can function as a double bass pedal.... very quietly compared to a real pedal.

Yes or buy a used Roland. I recently bought a 3-year old TD12, which almost exactly 50% of the new cost. So look around. The mesh heads on the more expensive Roland kits are quieter.

Short term, a cheaper E-kit will suffice. But they break. My Simmons SD5 broke in a month. Long run, Roland will last and then are even gigable (with a good amp). More expensive but worth every penny. I had the TD 20 for a while and loved it.

I think you with an electronic drum set its worth it to buy insurance. Even with my acoustic Pearl Session i have insurance on it. My basement flooded 3 times, and by some miracle, the water didnt reach my drums, but each time it was within a foot of them.
