  • Hello, newbie to e drums

    Hello all,

    Tom here.

    I started drums at 12, had a long lay-off after college/Army, got back in about 10 years ago. 55 now! Better late than never.

    I play in church about once a month, and do some little recording projects at home.

    Never owned any e drums, but they are appealing for quiet practice, portability, and clean recordings. GarageBand and my iPad are great, but tapping on the screen isn’t doing it for me for recording drums. Plus, I occasionally get asked to play here and there, and a portable e kit sounds like the ticket for me.

    Looking forward to learning, and gradually assembling some stuff to drum with.

    Thanks!

          Hi Tom, a TD-17 would probably suit you down to the ground. Glad to have you around mate.

            +1 on the TD-17 - good all around kit that's reasonably priced.

            I like the little compact kit in your avatar photo

              Thanks everyone! Yes, TD 17 looks promising.

              sadly that little cocktail kit in my avatar is no more. I was playing in a church some years ago that had to set up each week. Bringing that little rig was easier than getting the full kit out of storage and setting up. I found the limitations fostered creativity. Thanks again!

                Hi mate, if I remember right, (well its been a long time), that was Carl Palmer's stage kit, ie from the band Emerson Lake and Palmer.

                Oooops not my avatar, Toms avatar. Da
