    Acoustic Drum Kit for a N00b?

    My cousin is interested in drumming. This is good because I can make him like death metal down the road

    But, he still needs to buy a kit and his budget is $1300, its mostly going to be for school band stuff. Its fine if theres no double kick. The less the better in terms of money spent...

    IMO as guitar player that dabbles in drums i would get this

    Gretsch Catalina Maple

    with this hardware

    Pearl Hardware

    and then save some money and get these and one more stand

    Zildjan A-Custom Pack

    and i know its a little more money but IMO its worth it

    ebay. seriously. tama rockstars, pearl exports... good stuff from the past 9 years. and there's nothing wrong with going older.....

    then as he goes along and learns, he'll figure out what he really wants in a kit, and save his $ up and make a smart purchase.

    and if he sucks and gives up, you only spent cheap money on a used kit that you can get back by re-listing on ebay.
