I am normally a guitar player ,but recently the lack of impetus to pick up my various axes has left me pondering if I should move to Drums. I used to play drums for a few songs for an old band (10yrs ago) but havent really touched them except for a stupid move last year when i bought a ION05 usb kit (idiot i know).
My question is really if there is a resonable kit that feels like and acoustic kit but is electric so I can play in my kitchen whilst my kids sleep. I need it to feel as close to a real kit as possible as when /if i get any good and transfer to an acoustic kit i would want to differnce to set me back as little as possible.
I would be looking to sell a few guitars to fund this, so I reckon I'd have around £500ish
There seems to allways be a need for a Drummer out there and allways thousands of Guitarist.
Mesh heads are the quietest heads you're going to get. You'll still get a slapping sound from cymbals though.
£500 isn't that much of a budget really. You could get a 2nd hand Yamaha for that, with rubber heads (still quite noisy) and then replace pads individually to get mesh pads. Even if you do that, you'll still get cymbal pad noise.
I prefer the Yamaha sounds to the Roland, but this is really a personal choice tbh.
