  • Super compact entry level kit

    So I'm just learning to play drums. And I can't yet justify getting a full-blown kit - either acoustic or electric. It's just way too loud (even electric) and takes up too much space, and the kids wouldn't appreciate that. And even entry level e-kits are kind of expensive.
    I've been looking at DW's Go Anywhere practice set (http://www.dwdrums.com/hardware/hw.a...cpPADTS5&w=p65), but I kind of wish it were electronic.

    I think it I could have something as compact as that, but electronic, so that I could plug in my headphones and not interfere with anyone in the house, could be perfect.
    I'm even thinking my smartphone could be used as the drum module to make it even more compact and affordable.

    What do you guys think of the idea?

      Try the Roland TD4KP. You can find a used one for cheap and it folds up when done to take up little space.

        Great, thanks. Didn't know it could fold. Will go to my local GC to check it out.

          check Roland td-1kv, it's quite compact. It even gets into the rear seat of my car without disassembling it

            Why would you ever disassemble your car to fit a drum kit into it?

            Kidding, it just looks funny as written!

              Right. You want compact? http://aerodrums.com/aerodrums-product-page/

              (alternatively, what you do want to spend? Makes it easier to recommend. On man's "expensive" is another man's "cheap")

              ps. most e-kits can "fold up" - just depends on how you set 'em up.
