Rocket (by Stagg) 5 piece drum kit + cymbals - £180.40 @ Tesco and Amazon

Found 9th Apr 2013
This is the cheapest entry level full size drum kit I can currently find (was looking for a friend who wanted to start)

I've been playing for 15 years and have used a couple of Stagg's - nothing wrong with the quality for a beginner, upgrade the skins, hardware and cymbals and you've got a decent gigging kit too

Same price also at Amazon (but people may have Tesco vouchers to use)

Links below to some better alternatives and also some upgrades you might want to look at in the future...

Although you still get the thud!

Funny enough I had my neighbour knocking on my door at 3:30 the other morning.

Can you believe that? 3:30am!


Lucky for him I was still up playing my drums.

Nice one stop post for beginners!! Good work hombre

Damn you amazon for one click and damn you hukd for great deals. It took a lot of willpower not to order this as i've wanted one since we had one in our form room at school!

Great post OP btw :-D

Bit cheaper than this ebay offer, but rather have the Figures!!

Dr Feelgood the Big Figure's Gretsch Drum Kit & Ludwig 6.5 Black Beauty
£10,000

(still miss Lee)

would avoid all these starter drum kits, a second hand pearl export mapex m series can be bought for the same kinda cash, and will hold their money to a point,and it saves further upgrades you will want, these things are terrible.

Not with cymbals etc... but If you've got £350 to spend, then yeah, second hand export all day long!
