    So im 16 from oz and im trying to get into drumming.
    Ive got no past experience whatsoever and am looking to try and find out which drum kit to buy.

    i would like to know what drum kits would be good for a beginner and i have been looking around but am kinda confused about what all the td 3's and 6's and 9's are...

    any help would be much appreciated

    The 3 is the low end module. it will be cheapest, but is still a good set - and has some coaching functions. ie training exercises built into the brain....the 6 is the discontinued middle class (I started with it)...older sounds, but more of them, and no coaching functions, but lots of backing tracks. the 9 is the current middle class module (I have this one now), really new sounds and technologies, some good coaching functions, more inputs....

    basically, if you can afford the 9, go for it, it is great. but you might be able to find 3s and 6s a lot cheapers, esp used, which might fit your budget, until you can afford to upgrade.

    try and make sure your snare pad is mesh, it gives the best feel. For a beginner, rubber is fine for the toms, unless you really can afford the expensive of mesh toms.

    please feel free to ask for any mor e specific questions you have!

      would there be any other kits that you would say are better for a beginner and how much do you think the kits would be worth...(both new and used)
