So I come in here periodically looking for non-guitar help. I'm in the market for a drum set for my kids. I have a rather small house, but it is centered on a 800 sq ft great room (kitchen, dining room, living room in one). This is about half of my living space. It has a vaulted ceiling with a natural reverb. I want to put a drum set in this space at Christmas. It needs to function with guitars and a keyboard - not over powered for a small space. I have looked at digital drum sets - this is the easy way - controlling volume. But I would really rather have acoustic if possible. Where do I look? How do I know if the set is right. I don't normally see drums as accessible in music stores like guitars. I can't try 100 sets and compare the volume - not that a guitar sounds the same at home as it does in the music store. I'm thinking electric might be the go-to solution, but I really want a small acoustic - not a toy. Are cocktail sets worth the effort?
