haha! thats just what happened! my parents were just like its a fad! but this the only thing i have ever stuck with! we had a well old pearl in the garage that someone gave us, so i started on that... even thought it had no snare.. or bass pedal... or hi hat! prolly the most important bits! but i just improvised and then got a ludwig rocker for a christmas present ages ago now... recently i have brought (cus i finally got a job!) and peace custom kit, which im really happy with... but i am glad i didnt start with a real good kit. i went to a carl palmer clinic a while ago and he was saying his parents brought him parts every year or so, so he started on a snare, and just played that for ages which really works cus he is amazing at snare tricks! i think work with the little you got a improvise untill you think you deserve something better!devilspain":29561e2r said:im usually a get it and then the fad wears off and dont care anymore sort of person i wanted rollar blades got them didnt use them after a week. so i asked for a drum kit my rents thot shit here goes again he'll want it we'll get and the fad will wear off. anyways they said if you still interested in a year we'll get you a kit. 1 year down i get my kit lol.

Start with a simple, quality entry level kit- maybe not one of those budget kits with crappy hardware, but still something you won't regret you buy and you'll be happy playing.
