Check Craigslist for drums. Depending on what you're willing to pay they're easy to find. I got mine from some guy over your way for $20. It was a closed top and originally had honey in it. Open top might be a bit easier to work with but just depends on what you want to do.
Stick to the Brethren! They'll help you out.
