My teenage daughter has become quite the percussionist. She wants to buy a set of used drums. I heard about Music Go Round in Duluth as an option. Anyone have a drum set for sale before we head over to Duluth this weekend? I’m in Marietta. Thanks!
Music go round is a cool place. Check out Facebook marketplace for better deals. Also would recommend electric drums for the house lol
I'm with you, electronic drums. Katie is playing percussion in the Walker band, luckily she is playing the xylophone.
My best friend growing up and I went to our first concert with his dad in 5th grade. His mom would still give him a hard time years later, shouting over the drum set "this is your fault, you took him to that KISS concert!"She’s mostly on xylophone, cymbals, bells, and other random percussionist toys for 8th grade band. But they let her play on a drum set and she can’t stop talking about it!
+1. Start with acoustic.I’ve played drums most my life. The electronic ones have gotten much better than they used to, but they aren’t going to allow very easy expansion in the future if she remains interested. You can’t replicate the actual way you hit a cymbal with electronic pads and all the different sounds you can get out of it. There are benefits though, like playing along with songs in your headphones easier (quieter) and being able to assign the drums different sounds.
I would probably recommend acoustic first, it will help learn on the actual thing. Plenty of good brands and I always recommend buying a nicer model (well cared for) used than a cheaper model new. Replace the heads and get new sticks and she should be rocking!
