My birthday is on Friday, and my parents are buying me an electronic drum kit. I've been playing for a year, but my only practice involved using my practice pad, and playing on my pillows. Finally, I am getting my drum kit, but it has to be electronic because I live in an apartment. I want an "inexpensive" set because honestly, my we're not the richest people ever, and we can't afford a Roland. My desicion comes down to the Simmons SDK7 which is $599, and the Yamaha DTX which is $699. I tried both. I love the look of the Simmons. It looks amazing, but the sound isn't too great. The Yamaha sounds pretty good, but it looks crappy, and resembles the Guitar Hero drums. I really torn between the two. Can you guys help me? Can someone with experience with two kits (or one of them) help?
