I haven't had a drum kit in many, many years. The first and only one I had I sold. It was a CB Percussion kit. I had Zilgian cymbals. I had a beautiful nice big Ping Ride Cymbal too. I miss that cymbal everyday. Anyways, I wondered what is a good kit to start off with if I'm getting back into playing drums? I really want to go the acoustic route because they're awesome and I like the feel better. I don't have the money at this point to actually get one but I just wanted an idea of what's out there. I realize it's all about personal preference. I've heard Ludwig is still really popular. I wouldn't mind having a DW drum kit. I just have been out of the loop for a while in terms of what's out there sound wise now. If there are any resources that anyone has that would make the research a bit easier it would be appreciated.
