Set for my band


New member
Is all of this worth the $? I will not stray from this company because my band is getting new stuff through them and I wanted to make it easier on them. FYI, I play heavy rock like Staind and Breaking Benjamin. I'm limiting myself to about $2500 and need a set, hats, 2 crashes, a china, splash and a ride. Any ideas?

you really need to play everything before you decide on what to buy, and things like drummers gloves are basically pointless. for your price i can make suggestions but you have to make the final decision.

1. gretsch catalina birch set - 700
2. tama roadpro stands (4 convertible stands, 1 snare, 1 hihat) - 430
3. 1 gibraltar grabber arm - 30
4. pdp double pedals -100
5. 14" hihats, maybe zildjian a customs or sabian aax
6. 20" or 22" medium ride, again, a custom or aax
7. 16" and 18" crash, probably medium weight (you could go med/thin with sabian aaxplosion)
8. 18" wuhan china. you cant really go wrong
9. roc - n - soc nitro throne because comfort is an absolute must.
10. basically any drum key will work...i use an evans flip key with some pointless light in it, but its an awesome key.
11. korg metronome (its blue) - 30

that should get you going but i suggest that you dont order the cymbals online...go to a store and find ones you like, not just whatever you can find.
