i liked the hi hats, until i heard other sets, and now they are horrible
i have no job, which means no money, which means no cymbals
my parents dont support anything i do, so they wouldnt give me any money for cymbals, or loan me any
You won't get any sympathy from me. That set you have, including the cymbals, is WAY better than the set I had when I started. My original hi-hats had big chunks missing from them and the flimsy 60's era knockoff stands I had were duct taped to get them to hold. It was all my parents could afford and I adapted. Appreciate what you have and later, when you can afford it yourself, upgrade your cymbals. An electronic set is not the way to go, keep the set you have.
Im afraid I have to agree with Airborne Ranger on this one.
Unless Im way missing the boat here, you are a begginer? Its not about your kit sound at this point. Its about your playing abilities and developing them. Once you have that down the kit will probably start sounding better. You cant polish a turd if if you dont even know how to polish, if you get what Im saying. Learning this instrument takes committment. Some have it and some dont. Maybe you dont....I dunno. That kit looks just fine to me. The heads looked like they are barely even used. How often do you even play them. If you cant afford better cymbals, then your not going to be able to afford an e-kit that sounds decent anyway.
Learn to tune. Adjust your kit so its comfortable to you. If you cant, then seek someone out to help you. Its not the kit man, its the player.
I didnt see what Kris had posted before my post. Hes spot on and knows exactly what he is talking about. Good advice Kris!
