    I suppose it all depends on your definition of "inexpensive."

        I accept that your set was under $1500; however, if you are a normal edrummer, it will not stay that way for long. Mine actually started out at about $850...I really do not want to know what it is now.

          Here's my "Franken-Kit" assembled mostly from used parts aquired via ebay for use at my church:

          The brain is a Roland TD-8. The snare is a Hart Acupad 10" IIST. The toms (6 in all) are the cheap Medeli 8" pads (i.e. Alesis DM5Pro kit) that originally had mylar heads which I switched out with some homemade mesh heads. The hihat, crash and ride are Roland cymbals (CY5, CY8 and CY12C/R). The original kit came with 3 cheap wedge cymbals, which I setup as an additional crash and two splashes. I have the tom on the far left setup with the same sound as the kick using a splitter so it can be used for faux double-kick beats. So far I have a little over a grand invested in the kit. All in all it works pretty well, though I'm planning on gutting the toms replacing all of the foam with the simpler Roland cone design and getting some good Roland or Hart mesh heads to get better bounce and response out of them.

          - Ugly.

            Hear is a picture of my e-kit in 2006 when I joined the band. Coverted brass, DIY toms and snare, used DM-5 and a rack made from an old hospital bed frame. About $350 was invested here. Today it's all Roland?Pintech with custom rack and mucho electronics. I don't believe there is a cheap electronic set because they all lead to GAS.

                Here's my TD3.
                I worked all summer for it.
                I am only 16 so it was tough.
                Two 12 inch PD120's.
                Two 10 inch PD100's.

                And the rest...

                  My first plumber drums (approx $400 total).

                  Playing them at the Mabee center....priceless.

                      They're drums used by "Joe the drummer". Didn't you watch any of the presidential debates?

                        They are drums made from plunbing parts (pvc caps and rubber test caps snapped together with foam and triggers inside), My own simplistic design. Sold 2 sets. That one is in a prison and the newer set is going to Africa.
