Default e-kit suggestions???

first of all, i'm a guitarist and vocalist...not a drummer. i can keep a solid beat, but need to work on all of the "extras". i'm looking to add an e-kit to my home studio. i like the idea of having my own ki to play around on, as well as learn on. i want to do this responsibly, so i don't want to spend a fortune. i'd hate to buy a $3,000 Roland kit only to find out that i really DON'T have what it takes to play drums (even if it is only for the sole purpose of me just enjoying my time in my studio!).

i've seen several models on ebay, but i don't know what to choose, or what to avoid for that matter. i'm looking to spend roughly $600. i know it won't buy the greatest kit, but again, i'm only looking for a "stepping stone" kit...just something to start on. if the whole drum-playing thing seems to work for me, then i can always upgrade to a better kit in the future.

thanks for any help!!!!

Roland and Yamaha. For your $, those are probably your best bets.

ditto- don't settle for a crappy cheap set off ebay. Roland and Yamaha both hold their resale value very well, so if you try it for a month and decide it just isn't your thing, you can sell it and come out probably less than $100 out; those ebay kits will be a pain to sell and will likely go for about half their cost used.
