Bunch of upside down metal barrels etc. for "street" appeal.

Extra points if you look homeless.

Don't bother bro, drumming sucks. Play guitar instead, it's way cooler.

Seriously though, check these out:

this one here is a good deal, gives you a few setup options and comes with some decent cymbals @ $900:

You'll pick up some decent shells for less than 900, just upgrade the rest of your shit over time as you have the cash. To buy a full set up of drums, hardware, and cymbals at once is a big ask especially for a poor cunt

I recently spent 80 odd on a rad as fuck tambourine

You don't need to spend much. Start with something simple. I bought a 2nd hand Pearl Export kit for $500 when I started. And yeah, upgrade over time. You'll develop a taste for what you want as you get better. (Assuming you're a beginner...)

Keep an eye on trademe. Sweet deals always come up.

if you're looking new you will only get a mapex Q series, a Pearl Target series or a sonor force 1000. all $899 with hardware and cymbals.
Then there is drum shop and ludwig $600 ratters.
All incredibly horrible pieces of shit.
Second hand will be your best bet.

I disagree. Acquiring good hardware is a very smart move. A shit kick-pedal while hold back your progress more (technique wise) than a shit cymbal (sound wise).

If you're going for Demon Drive pedals then I might suggest you try the Axis "A" Longboards instead. They're totally worth the extra dosh.

Reference shells? Have you done any research in the MASTERWORKS series shells?

Yeah i had a look on the pearl website but theres a few fairly new reference shells selling on trademe for like 3000 and they are like double that brand new. Bought the demon drive yesturday i liked the feel of it more than the axis only once u change the DD to longboard. Such a sweet pedal though very quick.
