Default E-Kit Advice

I apologise for the help I asked for in the other thread, as I've done some re-evaluating and decided an E-Kit would be best in my situation. (Noise and space issues)

Bear in mind, I'm not looking for the best of the best, since I'm beginner and it really doesn't bother me all that much. I'm just looking for something functional that I can practise on that won't crap out on me...and is relatively cheap.

I have these two in mind so far:
http://www.themusicking.co.uk/alesis...demo-available

http://www.rockemmusic.com/product/a...ass-drum-pedal

I have had a look on ebay, even for better second hand models like DTXplorer's...but all the ones that were within my budget were unfortunately pick-up only and already had a fair amount of bids.

So, any advice on what to look and whether or not I should go for either of those kits is appreciated.

Also, is it worth waiting till after Christmas? Will the prices drop that dramatically or should I just go for it now?

ION? I may be mistaken, but isn't that the one designed for Rock Band 2?

Ah, you're probably right. I've just never heard the name outside of people talking about RB2.

What about the DD505? Is that a decent kit?

They look decent.
Nice with hats, and 2 crashes.
Enough toms and a snare.
Also there are bass drums that come with it.
Are you aware of the price?

I recently realised I had more money than I thought I did (in the bank). So I can probably afford to go up to 300.

Thanks for looking into it, I appreciate your time. I think I might go with that one.

I don't know about the 505, but i had the 502, and while it's alright to just get started, you need to upgrade pretty soon if you become slightly serious. I've heard that the 505 is pretty much the same as the 502 just with rubber pads. I do recommend the Alesis DM5 though. And if you find a used roland or yamaha in your price range, well definately get that :)
