There are a lot of E-kits available now so I'd highly recommend visiting your local drum/music shop and actually having a play.

From my experience the Yamaha kits didn't cope with cymbal swells particuarly well, the Rolands were much better.

It's worth checking out the Traps kits - a decent kit with mesh heads that uses the Yamaha or Roland brain for sounds.

Hi There.
I've not had much to do with the yamaha dtx etc. I have an fairly old Roland TD10. To be honest the sounds aren't that great and from what I've heard the newer ones aren't much better. What I have done is invest in EZ drummer and Superior drummer2. The sound quality of these for the price is outstanding, really makes you want to play the kit for just that little bit longer Very Happy
Could be an option to get yourself a second hand vdrums or yam kit off ebay and then spend a 100-200 on a drum sound source like Superior, BFD
Battery drums etc. You would need a pc with a midi input and an average to good sound card as well mind!
