We're most likely moving to a bigger place come September (our second house which is being rented out till now or so I'm told, right now we live in a basement suite).
Long storey short, I think its finally time I got some drums, in fact they were going to be my first instrument but didn't have enough room in my room to put em, and my mom basically told me I could not put them any where else in the house >_< so I opted for guitar until now.
So what my question is, what's a good quality drumset for the price, I don't want something like Pearl that costs a billion dollars, just a set (or pieces that make up a set) that's affordable, since I am a total n00b to drums if I do buy them now. Just want like a good set to begin on.
What I basically am looking for is a good throne but not too fancy, a few toms (good enough for a beginner), a snare, a few cymbals thrown in, a hihat I suppose, and bass drum with a dual kicker (ok maybe a single but would it be better to start off on a dual or a single, I mean later down the road I'm gonna get a dual either way so should I start of with one and get used to it or not?).
Preferabbly under $1000 canadian. I'm looking right now and I've found some good deals already, but I want your guys' opinion too, since I dont know what I'm getting myself into it.
I'll post links/pics prices of stuff that I find while on my hunt, and I'd appreciate it if you could take some time to help me as well
