I am thinking about buying a drum kit but as a beginner what would be the best thing to buy???

Cause drums on rock band are more similar to real drums but not with the guitar cause guitar has keys and real guitar has strings.while drums on rock band and real life its all about rhythm about hitting the drum itself..

But anyone that started out playing drums what you get and any advice?? because i love music all the time now :):)

    Not really something that can be recommended. It's all based on your wallet size. Can you afford a brand name 5-piece kit and adding extra's like brand name cymbals (i.e Tama drums/Sabian Cymbals) or maybe all you can afford is a beginner set with free cymbals (Pearl set with free Pearl cymbals), or even something low end like a Westbury kit and no-name cymbals.

    You should be going to the store and testing them out and speaking with a drum pro there, not just a message board.

    I'm planing on getting a new drum set to, wallet size is probably the biggest factor, The main thing I need to consider is the noise level, There is no way i can have a real dum kit because its Way to loud, so its an electronic kit for me with a nice set of head phones, Alot of people are happy with the ION kt for 300 bucks, pretty good I think, the alesis sound brain runs about 350 bucks, Also like the previous post go to alot of music stores sit at alot of drum kits, with time you'll figure out what is right for you.

    Good Luck!:D

    Take a look at the link in my signature. The ION kit is 259 with free shipping!! That is $50.00 less than anywhere else I found. I used the 50 saved to go towards my Pintech cymbals!! BTW, Abe's of Maine is an authorized dealer for ION.

    A great place to start is Musician's Friend, they have a great selection, from beginner to pro. Just a suggestion when I started playing I used sabian b8 and b8 pro cymbals. Great cymbal to start with, I still have them today and still use them on occasion.
