Default Amp???

Hi everyone
I just purchased a yamaha electronic set. I want to jam with some friends. What do i need next? Amp? PA system? Any help would be appreciated.
This will be the first time playing drums and not knowing if I will like the drums I would like the cheapest set up
Thanks in advance for any suggestions
I'm 60 years old so I won't be starting a band anytime soon LOL

Roland makes products specifically for e-drums.

Any keyboard board amp will work as well. A PA system might be over kill, but would certainly give you more volume.

Just don't use a bass or guitar amp, as they are not designed to give you the full highs and lows of a drum kit.

I own three Roland PM-1 amps. Rated at 60 watts, not only do they handle (are designed to) e-drums, they make excellent guitar, bass, keyboard, or vocal amps. I also own three Roland KC-100 amps. Also rated at 60 watts. Designed for keyboards, they handle e-drums fair ... but guitar, bass, keyboard, and vocals .... sweet. Both can be found on eBay ... KC's far more than PM's ... but I've scored all six amps used. More bang for the buck.

Just depends on your budget and judging by your post you don't want to spend much..lol..simmons is probably gonna be your best choice (price considered)...they make a model called the DA200S that sells for $299...you can usually buy these at Guitar Center (or online at Guitar Center, Musician's Friend, Music 123, RMC Audio)..if price isn't a concern look at th Roland PM-30 or Yamaha MS100DR..both of these sell in the $600 range..the main benefit to them is that they both have satellite speakers that can be mounted on rack and panned...I've included some links below to each product..
