    v-Drum pedal/stand recommendations?

    I just picked up this kit:

    It doesn't come with the hat or snare stand, or pedals. Because apparently drummers are all delicate flowers or something, whatever.

    Anyway, recommendations for stands/double kick por favor. Would like to keep it under $500 for all 3. These are just once-in-a-while jam drums for BBQs/MG-fests (er, MM-fests) and for my 3 year old to hopefully enjoy beating on enough to get him his own kid set.

    It sounds pretty great here, though the dude's stellar playing doesn't hurt:

    Can one use the same hardware used on regular acoustic kits? If so, I think I can help....

      Tell me about it... I got the exact same pedal as my drummer uses as I knew he'd complain endlessly about it if I didn't, they were the Pearl Powershifters and I managed to grab them for under £100 used. For the Hi-Hat and snare stand I just went with a couple of cheap ones I had hanging around in my carhole but I'd recommend the Gibraltar stuff if you want something half decent and not hugely expensive. I actually ended up using one for the Hi-Hat because I don't have one of the fancy Roland Hi-Hat pads and the regular cymbal would just spin round on the proper Hi-Hat stand.

        OK, so if "acoustic" hardware works, a hi-hat stand like the one I bought is a good idea to make sure you can get both the double-bass pedal and the hi-hat pedal in the right places:

        The double-bass pedal we have is the Speedcobra 310, with the beaters swapped for the simplest Pearl ones, 'cause they're lighter.

          Any acoustic snare stand should work fine. I have a Tama Roadpro stand for my acoustic kit ($90 at GC) and a PDP stand for my Alesis e-kit.Fpor double bass pedals, I have a Pearl P932 double bass pedal (runs about $260 new). My PDP acoustic kit came with PDP's double bass pedal but I prefer the Pearl's feel and response.

          For hi-hat stands, I have an older PDP 800 Series hi hat stand with two legs ($109) instead of three. These two legged stands are better than three legs if you want to do double bass because you can rotate the two legs to make fitting your second kick pedal during set up easier.

            I went with all DW stuff. Ended up with a set of DW4000 double kicks, a DW5000 throne and a 3300 snare stand. I forgot how much fun buying drums is, because I also had to get a drum mat, stick bag and a 12 channel mixer.. And since I'm already bleeding out, I picked up a 15" Mackie powered wedge for them:

            My plan is for all this shit to live in my basement, along with another pair of Headrush 8s, an FM3 and some bass modeler. Basically plug and play jamming for all my buddies with kid friendly volume control.

            Now I just need the goddamn pandemic to end so I can have said friends over.

                Good call, DW hardware is great

                I might be moving soon, and if my new spot isn't as noise-friendly as my current home I've been thinking about selling my acoustic kit and cymbals to snag something like this.
