WTF answered Saturday February 26 2005, 5:46 pm: go to musiciansfriend.com, they have some pretty decent drumsets around 300, maybe 320, and shipping is reliable [ WTF's advice column | Ask WTF A Question ]
K3587 answered Thursday February 24 2005, 10:43 am: eBay has been suggested ad infintum, but I seriously would not consider it. You can't personally take a look at the drums, play them and get a feel for them, and decide in what condition they are before you buy them. Plus, shipping would be a bitch...I'd imagine you'd have to get it shipped piece by piece, which is a large hassle and quite expensive.
There is no way you can get a drum set for under $300. You should shoot for something more around $600, because that's usually about as low as it gets. The drum set I have was $600, and it's fairly decent. The only reason that it was so cheap, was that the guy who owned it didn't make his payments on it, and it was repossessed. That being said, your best bet is to go to music shops in your area, and see if they have any deals like that. In my case, they didn't have that drum set out on display. People normally don't want to buy things with a reputation like that. The set was in the back, and we had to specifically ask if they had anything like it. Failing that, check the classified ads in the paper. Someone may be trying to sell a set there, and they usually go decently cheap.
