    The kid has been taking lessons for a while now and he's a fucking stud. I need to get him a real kit but don't know shit about shit. He's 12 now so one of those first act kits ain't gonna cut it. I keep seeing these "CB" kits around for decent prices but never heard of them. I'm not buying DW for a 12 year old who may give up in a year. What's up with the CB's???

    I was at an estate sale the other day and saw a set. You might check craigslist and newspaper ads for estate sales and garage sales.

    I have been playing for over 30 years...CB's are crap...dw's are the best ( that is what I play) but not for a 12 year old...I would recommend an entry level kit from Tama, pearl, or ddrum...I like the pearl hardware the best but I like tamas better for the sound...

    This is actually a great idea...check out Craig's list...you can get something really good at a pretty good price...a lot of kids think they want an instrument and then realize they would just rather play rock band

    I'm finding shitloads of CB sets in my price range on CL. That probably says a lot right there.

    I do trust you, because you said DW are the best - and you are correct.

    They are really incredible...I was able to get a kit custom made for me by dw about 10 years ago...Amazing...I used to play Tama for a long time but now...nothing compares...
