    Hiya! My name is Jane, and I once planned to become a drummer, but due to some unpleasant circumstances I gave up. Gladly things got better with time, and now I'm planning to return to my hobby. So I came here looking for some tips from more experienced drummers, since I'm choosing my first e-setup (but - unfortunately - I've never worked with something like this before).
    Hope this doesn't sound like an anonymous hobbyist introduction.
    Thanks for reading this, and have a nice day!

    ps - think I shouldn't ask for recommendations right here (due to rules!), so I'm going to read the forum first. But thanks anyway!

        Welcome to the forum and back to the hobby. You’re correct to read the forum and ask your questions in the correct one. MKOK has mentioned a budget which of course is very important. Also try to envision where you want to be with your hobby in a few years and try and buy your second kit first. Also consider taking some lessons to make sure your technique is correct. Most importantly, have fun!
