I have been looking for a drumset for many years, one that was in good shape and at an affordable price...DH finally ran across a great deal, right here in almost our backyard. It was a home practice set for the HS band drummer. He no longer plays in the band, in fact he is one of those seniors 'soon to fly the nest' for college.
It is a 5 piece set, bass, snare, 3 tom-toms (I love the toms!), a hi-hat, a crash cymbal and a ride cymbal. One owner...I am able to slam around on it along with music, which is what I wanted to do. It is set-up in the studio...our neighbors are fairly far away - anyway they aren't next door. PERRRR...FECT!!
I play the guitar, the keyboards..now it's time to learn the drums. I imagine I will be self-taught at best - and not real serious. DH will use them as well. No..we won't have the fingerless gloves, the sweaty locks with the skull and crossbones bandana, the sleeveless T...ha ~ but I will be certain to improve over time! I am not a natural percussionist but I am determined.
There are lots of You Tube videos that teach all kinds of "drum" stuff. I can see myself now, needing a break from painting, turning up the toons and just keepin' a steady beat. Look out Ginger Baker!

Too often we take for granted the everyday places we spend our lives walking on.
