Santa Claus and a drummer who keeps perfect time are walking down the street. They both spot a $20 bill at the exact same time. Who gets to pick up the 20?

Ha!

I really like the Ludwig Questlove breakbeats kit and the Gretch Catalina Club Jazz line.

Questlove is:
16" bass that packs quite a punch
13" floor tom that sounds great when tuned correclty
10" mounted tom
14" wood snare. I probalby wouldn't even use this if I bought the kit, I'd use my normal snare.

Gretsch:
18" bass drum. Amazing sound. Think Evlin Jones.
14" floor tom
12" mounted tom.
14" snare.

Both give you more bang for the buck than most people would need.

If you're really adventurous you could always piece together a Frankenstein kit and convert an 18" floor tom to a bass drum.

The only advantage drums have is that you don't need pedals. I always need just one more pedal . . .

You just need one pedal. two if you count the hi-hat. But some of us are cymbalholics.

Nice cheers. cheers

I was eyeing the Questlove kit but wasn't sure if it's hype. Always suspicious of that kinda marketing.

What about Tama Club Jam 4 piece?

I haven't played drums since college. smile2

I like synthesizers and acoustic drums.

The Tama club jam is another nice kit, along with the Pearl Midtown and the Yamaha Stage Custom Bop kit. Yamaha's hardware has always held up better than anyone else's and I think Yamaha has the best overall bang for the buck.

If your goal is to record electronic music with acoustic drum sounds you should just get a good multi-sampled drum library instead of an actual drum kit.

If your goal is to bang on some drums carry on.

I miss drumming.

I'm really a guitarist and choral singer, but when I was in punk bands and had practice/studio space, I would play the drums all the time. It was pretty amazing therapy and exercise. I always kinda sucked and could not hit soft for the life of me, but man was it fun!

Playing any music is good for you. The value of creativity and the brain-body connection you get from it can’t be overstated.

not me, it’s the human brain perceiving the phenomenon of a specific metered order of a high quantity of electrical impulses reproduced by your computer as a relatable set of sounds and moving images of a fellow apparently named luke haaja attempting to reproduce a work originally played by jon theodore that was rhythmically composed by blake fleming and omar rodriguez-lopez over 15 years ago

the outro can be experienced as both a summarization and refutation of the above boring and ultimately meaningless set of trivia through complete albeit temporary transcendence of the human fascination with causality and associated tangential obsession with names, labels, and reputation by entering a state of pure objectivity

I'm not interested in samples or DAW, can't stand it, except for basic recording and mixing.

I'm a hardware kinda guy, mostly analog stuff.

Like to fiddle with knobs and patch cables rather than mouse and pads.

Especially when it comes to drumming, the physicality is part of the fun.
