Solid April 28 2009
By Thomas Aldrich - Published on Amazon.com
I have had this set for a couple of days and, for the money, this seems to be a great value. Really easy to set up, the wires are run inside the frame so you don't have cords hanging everywhere. I have only played it through the headphones, and overall the sound is very good. The pads and cymbals are very sturdy and fairly responsive and should hold up for a while. The kick is decent and the hi-hat function is o.k.; I have not had any of the problems, mentioned by others, with the mis-triggering zones. I would agree with the other reviewer about the pre-set patterns, which are really weak; if you are looking for some rock beats you will be disappointed. I am a medieum level drummer and this is a great set for me, since an accoustic would be way too loud; this set is a homerun for a beginner or anyone (especially a kid), looking to give drumming a try.

It works for me June 25 2009
By jazz drum guy - Published on Amazon.com
I've been a professional drummer for more than 40 years and it's always been a pain in the butt practicing without offending someone - parents, girlfriends, wives, neighbors - so I've always used a practice pad set or muffled my drums and cymbals with pads, which are less than optimal. It hasn't been worth $3000 for an electronic set but I paid less than $300 for my Singing Machine set and I love it. I've recommended it to my students as well. The drum/cymbal preset sounds are great and altering any of them is easy. The play-along tracks cover many musical styles and are fine for practice - better than a metronome (which it also has) and you can speed them up or slow them down, depending on your skill. And you can record yourself alone, or playing along, which is great for students. The drawbacks include the pad positions don't allow much flexibility but are fine for the standard kit setup; the bass "head" is too taut, making it too easy to play faster than you could on a bass drum; the snare has both head and rim shot sounds, which is nice, but you can do a rim shot just by hitting the rim, rather than having to strike the head and rim simultaneously. But all in all, for the price, this is a great product.

AMAZING deal, xlnt $:!! ratio July 6 2009
By Victor Bornia - Published on Amazon.com

I'm a former guitarist and part-time drummer who recently got an acoustic kit again (in the garage)...but practicing basics at deafening levels (and -- ahem -- "entertaining" the neighbors) doesn't sit well with me, so I looked for an inexpensive electric solution solution. Found it with this. Now (7/09) reduced from the $[...] I paid, this is a ridiculously great deal... Hell, try it for 30 days; Amazon's return policy is great.

This set took a little tweaking to taste, most importantly clipping a beefy old sock to the kick pad to dampen the bounce (which was causing double-hits), but now things are sweet. Rigged up a holder for my iPod and now I just snap on the headphones and practice away whenever the hell I want -- in my home office! Sounds are great, feel/responsiveness fine, layout limitations manageable.

NOTE: I had one pad crap out (cease to work) within the 90-day warranty period, so I called the company and they OVER-NIGHTED (seriously) a replacement to me. Next morning. I was floored. If you're looking for a tinker kit and don't wanna spend 500+, this is the thing (there's a new model out for not much more, and it's prolly better, but now this one's even cheaper!)

Reasonable June 5 2009
By Christopher Duncan - Published on Amazon.com
I bought this product as a beginning drummer living in an apartment. I couldnt buy an acoustic set because of the noise. That being said, i would like to hear some noise out of the thing.

Setup was easy enough. It's a bit cramped for me, as I'm about 6'2" tall. If you really tighten everything down there are no real issues with vibration and false hits.

The major disadvantage to this setup is the computer and it's volume. You'll need to buy some sort of amplifier if you want the volume to be loud enough to hear out a set of speakers over your sticks. Granted, I bought this because it was quiet but during the day outside of quiet hours, I'd like to be able to hear it a little louder. If you crank the volume up as loud as possible, you'll hear the snare but that's about it.

Bounce is good. Electronic drums are almost never as good as an acoustic set, but this set has enough bounce on the sticks to train on. The base pedal bounces a bit. If I hit the pedal and want the head to stay at the drum pad, it will sometimes bounce and double tap.

Not bad but keep the box... Dec 3 2009
By Grandpubba - Published on Amazon.com

Well...We've had this set for 3 days. In the three days 2 of the toms have broken. Both broke in the same manner and in the same place. A simple thin wire connecting the drum head to the circut board within. If your the least bit mechanical its an easy fix but thats not the point. I don't know if this unit was assembled by a new guy on a Friday afternoon or what but there is obviously something wrong in the manafacturing process. All in all, when working correctly, this is a cool set. I like the options and sound quality but cant get over the bad wireing. I have decided if the third tom breaks I'm getting a refund. Good thing I kept the box.
