I'm not a real percussionist or drummer, but I can keep a beat. I have access to lots of sound library tones, but I want to have a set that I can use to record. Any suggestions for under $500?

The man said he has a library of drum sounds. He wants a real drumset. Can't you read?I would highly recommend trying EZ drummer first. It is a bit different from a library of sounds in that you also get midi tracks.
Really cool for just laying down song ideas to be finished later with an actual band/drummer. Sounds way better than any live drums I have ever recorded . Keeping in mind I'm a DIY home hobbyist, far from a drum recording engineer.
Do you use your electronic kit live as well with a band ?I haven't used an acoustic set for a long time, edrums are the way to go imho.
Quiet practice, easy to move, so much easier to record and get good sounds. I have an older one, but some of the newer kits feel pretty amazing.
For recording, digital and modeling/samples is the way to go.
I use mine jamming too, hooked up to a PA system or general loudspeaker it's as loud as you want (or not).
Gotta say I like playing and not having everyone's ears bleeding from everyone turning up to match the drums.
This^^^Yamaha Stage Customs can be found easily and are cheap but decent drums. Not a ton of tuning range from my experience at least but once you dial them in with good heads they'll do the job. Good hardware too.
