I didn't get the answer I wanted to hear but I got the truth. It looks like my practice shed is a no go.
I will have to look into renting a practice space and I could entertain am electronic kit but having played a few I'm pretty sure they aren't for me. I'd rather just use practice pads for a fraction of the cost.
I'll buy a few lottery tickets too, just in case.
Seriously, they have come on leaps and bounds. Try one of the Roland VAD kits - basically an acoustic looking kit, but electronic.
Not cheap I'll grant you, but if you were thinking of spending on an outhouse....
Alternatively one of the TD series are a bit cheaper. I've played acoustic kits since the 80's so I'm definitely not an electric kit guy either but the current ones are very good.
Or just a Bill Sanders practice pad kit!
