Depends on what you think is cheap, I'd say this is a great set for a begginer, and I would hold off buying a double bass until you actually need it.

And if you price range is only like 300-400 bucks, just wait until you can buy this one because this one is better than any $400 one.

keep in mind that cymbals and hardware usually come close to doubling the price of a kit. that link is shells only.

It sure is nice having you around to help with this stuff, Dave.
I have to take breaks from it after the same thing has been asked 68 thousand times. Nice that you're able to pick up the slack.

It's healthier to learn drums with a single bass pedal. Enough practice allows you to do more with one pedal than you can do with two--especially because your left foot is freed up to do more highhat work.

Here's an idea, do some research on musicians friend and sweetwater, give us a list of the drums sets your interested in, and we'll tell you which ones to avoid.

peace,

hahah drums are hardly my forte (yet... i'll be picking yours and satchmo's brains in the fall hopefully).

i hear you on the 68 thousand times thing all too well, we should make sticky threads for first time purchases of drums, guitars, and basses.
