    Find a friend who has a drumset and crash at his place often.. Hehe..

    Just joking. Well, If u're really serious bout it, u shld rent the studio and prac and in the long run, get a drumset.
    Cos with sacrifice then comes the results.

    All drummers that i know of does either that. So prob u can start somewhere. Practice pad helps with ur stroking so if u wanna prac coordination, prac with the drumset will be gd.

    Cheers! Peace

    If you're new to drumming, serious long term practice on drum pad is more important than anything else. Afterall, drumming is all about your hands As soon as you get better, you'll probably be motivated to buy a drumset to put at home. I strongly don't advise renting studios for drumming, it gets really troublesome in terms of travelling to the studio, especially you have to waste time rearranging the drumset to suit your comfortability. Some studios have drums which aren't tuned properly, and most, have bad cymbals.

    Some people here would know that I practise on one solo practice pad, 2 office chairs and my bed ^^ I've been doing that since 2005 and I still do lol. Because I live in a HDB and my parents think that there is "no more space at home for a drumset".

    Basically, the idea is to practise your techniques, ie. rudiments, etc. on the practice pad, and the larger movements, ie. which drum to hit, using the temporary office chairs + bed setup. The only problem is that I don't get to practise my pedal techniques.

    But hey, you can practise at home!

    Getting a used kit is really not that pricey and the used market is pretty big....If you are not picky, you can get a kit as low as $350....next, check out this thread (http://soft.com.sg/forum/how-drums/8...complains.html) for volume control solutions....

    Rudimental Drummer, can check on the links to your photos? They are missing...can help a lot with your photos! Thanks!

    Really? I have hardly seen any kits going for around $350, unless its like no-brand/small ones. Many also don't have cymbals (or stock/lousy ones). Its really quite pricey when you add in sticks, new heads, and maybe a throne.

    There are...but your aim is to be able to practice drums at the most cost effective way for long term right? So whether its branded or not does it really matter? Most studios or schools rent out their rooms at $12-$20 per hour....let's say even if you spend $500 on a kit, that is only worth approx. 40 hrs of practice (based on $12 per hour)...
