Default Electronic Drums

Can anyone recommend a beginner electronic drum kit for my 11yr old son to learn on?

Or even some to avoid?

Cheaper the better...

Uhh, there are really not much electronic drum kits under 1000 bucks, try a real drum kit, make sure your son can keep a beat, let him suffer til' he gets his beats down, then just get him a real drum kit. he'd probably be happier and have more fun, im 14, i did this as well, i suffered for months, 4 to be exact, and i used some virtual drum kits online, and i used my friends drum kits, and i learn to be good, or at least half descent before i got my own drum kit, so test him a little, and get him some drums, not some plastic pads, after he gets some skill down Thats all i did, and now me and my dad play together and we sound amazing. this is before christmas, and im posting after, so this might not come in handy.

I have a simmons sdk7 about 700.00 with everything. It seems pricey but if you think about it

#1 Its of decent quality so it will last a bit
#2 You could mess with it to.
#3 It will take a double bass pedal. That's a big thing these days
#4 I enjoy it.
#5 It has good reviews.

Things you will need... Throne, bass pedal(s)...

Oh yea there are 2500.00 dollar Roland sets but like you said beginner.

Thanks for the response. The boy ended up opting for a Fender Mustang. Never enough drummers in the world....
