I would like to buy a starter drum set for my significant other. I am open to either electronic or non-electronic. Used or new. What should I be looking for? Which pieces are essential to learn on? Which brands are decent? Are there advantages to the electronic kind (I gather that noise is a big advantage -- I'm thinking these will go either in the basement or in a spare bedroom, is that even possible?) Is there anything else I should know? It's a surprise, and I have about 4 months to pull it off, if that matters....
