I bought this because I just couldn't wait any longer.. I'm saving for a proper electronic kit (EG Pearl E-Pro live) .. And I'm very happy with my new 'toy'
I used to play drums 'when I were a lad' but since getting married & having kids, ..they're too loud etc.
I bought this kit on a bit of a whim, after finding them here, reading the reviews. I saw this machine a few years ago and regret not getting it sooner.
1) Manage your expectations, it's not a proper drum kit
2) The Pedals lack response as previously mentioned, but I've found that a change in pedal approach helps, you can learn to use them quite effectively.
3) You can make a good quality sounding beat and drum along to anything 'Pop'... I tried drumming to a bit of Rush ... and well ahem, it has it's limitations... but all the old Sabbath stuff, Bad company, Free.. no problems.
4) as a learner kit it's very good, anyone who wants to take up drumming, start with this, it does the job and is fun.
I'm very happy with my purchase, I play on it most days for an hour or two.
