Every beginning drummer needs a couple things to start on their musical journey. We have made this list to help facilitate this process. Heres a couple things we recommend:
Electronic drums are a great way for a beginning drummer to start their musical journey! They are compact and quiet- perfect for people living in apartments, or whose living situation doesnt allow for a full drum set. Here are some recommendations:
Alesis Nitro/ Surge- Great quality for the cost. Alesis is a trusted brand in the industry.
Roland Td 1k- the lowest cost brand new electronic drum set from Roland. Not upgradeable, but a good choice for the budget. Roland is the most reputable name in the electronic drum industry.
These kits generally provide higher end features than the kits listed above. These include, but arent limited to, the ability to upload your own sounds and higher quality parts.
Alesis Drum Command- similar to whats listed above, but with higher quality parts, better mesh heads, and an upgraded brain.
Roland TD 07- Comparable to the Alesis mentioned above.
