For some reason I have a hankering for some drum or sampler pads. I say for some reason as I already have guitars, missus has bass, and I have a couple of synths that I barely play but intend to get around to at some point when time allows.
At the moment I'd like to play about with either a Roland SPD-SX sampler pad or SPD-30 drumpad. Bearing in mind the only drumming I've ever done was on Rockband beginner stuff am I likely to buy another piece of hardware beyond my abilities that will sit and gather dust? How long does it take to be able to string an adequate simple rock beat together to play along with some tunes?
Since it'll be pretty much entirely frivolous, are there other decent not too expensive options for me to consider/research a bit more? I'd love a full kit but space won't allow and I'm not sure my other half would either.
I really shouldn't have watched some Craig Blundell videos recently which has partly brought this childhood wish back to the surface.
