Drummers?

Post by USMCWeatherMan on 7/12/2014, 00:29

Any drummers? I'm not, always wished I learned an instrument. My son has gotten into drums.

Was going to pick up a beginners set for him for XMas, but his teacher said to look into a good name used set. Got him a Pearl Export series set used for $400, which included the cymbals. From what I read most sets dont come with them and they are pretty expensive too.

I played when I was younger, before family life etc. Pearl are always a good choice, well built and will last a long time if not mistreated. I ended up with a Yamaha set in the end, they also make very good kits.

One of the most important things you can get him other than the kit is somewhere to practice regularly without people complaining!

Thanks for the link, I'll check those out. We set him up a spot out in the garage for now...we'll still be able to hear him, but that should help for now. Hopefully when we move again in a year, we can find a house with an extra room (or have one set up) for sound deadening.

He goes to this place out here in California called School of Rock, I believe they are adapted from the Jack Black movie of the same name. They seem good so far. I believe his teacher has toured with a couple of big named bands...not that that really says anything about his teaching ability. We shall see.

True, although he is only 10, he has muttered wanting to be a Marine...which always gets me a look from the wife. Not that we'd be against him joining the service, but I'd hope for him to atleast try out college first.

I think part of the music lessons was us wanting to make him a little more well rounded, but another part is that here in Cali we opted to home school him. In order to try and not make him like Home School Harold (Google it, funny memes) we try to get him into a lot of extracurriculars.
