First off, I'd like to say hello to everyone. First timer here. I am a lover of the drums and wanted to get insight from you guys who admire them as well. First of all, what's the best drum set to get? Second, just for my curiosity, who is everyone's favorite drummer? Looking for some inspiration here people! lol. I run a blog and put out who my favorite drummer ever is today. Don't kill me for it! I want to see what you guys think.

If you want a acoustic set go with something nice and strong like the Pearl Referance set

Or if you want to go electronic go with the Roland TD20

I'd never argue with choosing Pearl...it's what I do! :wink:

It kinda depends on your budget. The Reference series is pretty pricey. Almost up there in the DW range. The head of the class is the Masters Custom, where you literally design the kit from the ground up.

My kit is the Vision series. Looks good, and sounds great! Evans EC2 heads on all the toms, Sabian AAX cymbals...and it's showtime! 8)

Pearls Are great drums. Good for just about anything.
The super high end ones Like the Refrence are a little better(in my opinion) and cost less than their DW counterparts.
If your looking for a good starter-Intermediate set the SONOR Force 1007 Series is VERY good. Thin shells for a really open sound and a pretty nice sounding base drum. It's made of Base wood wich is cheeper than Maple or Birch but there should be no problems if you know how to tune them. All in all well built drums.

As for my Favy drummer. Benny Greb

Party pooper here. I think you should go with what fits the pocket right now since there are NO guarantees. Drummers give up daily (there are solid reasons for that too, not just about talent). Best find out for yourself I think.

I put together a marvelous kit some years ago from various kits, bought one that was fantastic and had to sell it owing to finances. In short drums aren't cheap and neither is finding a place to bang around on them.

Sure if you've got the spare 5 or 10 grand then go for it. I prefer a personal kit myself built from parts. Working on that now as it happens.

Here is a great site on drum setups and a pretty good read too. Hope this helps?

I watched a young guy play a crap drum kit the other day and he was SMASHING. I think it was some sears jr set but he really played well and was quite dynamic.

I.E> Your expensive drum kit won't save you from sounding like a moron if ya can't play it.

Invest in practice/rehearsal and even if you have the worst drum set in the world, you'll still shine.

People will invariably make comments about how well you play that "shitty ole drum set".

All it really needs to be is functional and all you really need is to be well prepared for what lies ahead.

On the convex, bad cymbals really stick out like bloody fingers on the sidewalk, so..

Well I say as far as drums go Ludwig drums. That is all I ever played. Drummers, wow I could go on but the king would be Buddy Rich, Gene Krupa. Then we have Neil Peart. But being a Beatles fan I like Ringo.

So many great drummers and musicians to choose from.

I have to say all of these guys have given you great advice...as for me I have played many different kits in my time and prefer Ludwig Drums for sound and durablity...all Gibralter Harware and Sabian Cymbals with a couple zilg splash in there also...you never get enough cymbals...But I have to agree before you spend you money practice your chops on beginner set or just a snare or pad..make sure you have the talent before you spend because you will never get your money back when you sell...you have to love the music...thata why we all play...Rocksteady / Rod

:D try different kits,most music shops will let you try there demos if they have them.you must feel like a part of the drum as cornball as it may sound be one with the drums,if you are not comfy on the kit its not you and it depends on what sound you are going for,they all sound different.So try before you buy and dont go for the biggest kit you see,start with a nice 5 piece,iv been playing for 35 yrs and i still use a 5 picee 8) with starting out big is not always good. and my top all around drummer!!!MR NEAL P of rush. :D
