That worked out alright for me. The only percussion equipment at my school when I started was a drum set (and a bad one at that), and it was nice to have some variety with the snare and toms. The cymbals were terrible, but the kids and I didn’t really care since that is all we had. I did manage to find the money to get a xylophone pretty early on, though, and I think that some sort of mallet instrument is necessary. Are your students renting snare/bell kits? If so, perhaps you could have a rotation of them bringing them to school so that they do get some mallet experience.
