    Any drummers out there?

    Hey guys! I'm looking to buy a drum set in the near future. I have my eyes on an RCI set (if i can find myself a couple of pretty pennies!) Any help someone could provide me on finding a drum set for myself would be greatly appreciated!

    Re: Any drummers out there?

    I've been drumming for quite a few years. If you get the basic set up (bass, two toms, floor tom, snare, hi hat, 2 crash cymbals and a ride) you'll be set for everything you'll ever really need to do. If you go with any of the usual suspects (Pearl, Mapex, Yamaha etc...) you'll also be fine. I would also suggest getting "heavy duty" hardware for all the cymbals. If you plan on playing any gigs, you'll also want the cases. So, you can really get into a lot of money, but, in theory you should really only have to buy 1 really good set. Plus, you can always add more crazy stuff later anyway.

    Hope that helps some.

    Drummer? Yes. Help on getting a kit? Unfortunately, no.

    I am a Drummer. But not a drum set drummer, I am a drumline Drummer like the isiserettes.

    Re: Any drummers out there?

    Unfortunately I can't help much finding one. The cymbals that came with my Tama drum set that I got 7 years ago are complete crap. The sad thing is, I'm still using them. I bought a ride cymbal, but the crash cymbal and hi-hat are awful. They're probably worth under 100 each. A good hi-hat is around 300 and a good crash around 200 which is more than I can afford at the moment (college student). My advice is, if you can afford it, to invest in better cymbals than what will most likely come with your set. It will make the whole set sound much better.

    Why do you feel the need to post about everything? Nobody is impressed by your musicianship and he wasn't asking about drumline. ******.

    Your a jerk, the title said any drummers out there. I am a drummer so I answered and told what kind of drum I play.

    Your posts are like spam. I'm going to assume you didn't read the OP cuz it says drum SET not drum LINE.
