Great value and starter!

By Mark

from Bristol, CT

I was surprised at all the sound options and value. This is probably the BEST value at this price for a beginner kit for any age. There are some minor issues with adjustment and range but I haven't even explored it thoroughly yet. All the family members have banged on it and we are having a great time.

Great Beginner Set

By WILLIAM FAHRNER

from Chatham, ontario

I've purchased a couple of these. One for a 5 yr old in my Church who's just started playing drums. I also picked up a set for my "Man Cave Studio" to complement my Guitars, Keyboard and various other musical equipment. I've got mine hooked up to a little 10w Behringer Amp. They work great right out of the box. Make sure you use stereo so that you get the full range of the cymbals etc. I got one set for $118 and another one for $159. Not bad!

I Love This Thing

By DAVID CHAPMAN

from Oceanside, CA

I'm not a drummer by any means but I love to let the agression out and have some fun. I've owned sets in the past but I really dig this one to mess around with. As others said, the volume out is very light, but I use headphones so it's no big deal. Just crank up the volume. Overall, for the price, I love it. I would love a set of Roland V Drums but just can't justify that expense. At $179 shipped this was a no brainer. If you want a cool little practice kit that has a tiny footprint, pick this sucker up. You can't beat it. Thanx David

Begginers will give up on drumming

By Karolie Nobre Grassi

from Dearborn MI

Believe me, this drum kit is horrible. The drums are non responsive, you need to hit hard the exactly center of the pad to get some sound out of it. The hi-hats are impossible to play. The cymbals will mute if you hit the bass drum at the same time. I told you.

Simmons SD Xpress

By Tom Vahle

from Quincy IL

First of all, I had to order 2 of these sets, and exchange the 1st one because the High hat pedal/double bass pedal, would constantly stop triggering the 1st day i got it. What I liked about this set.: 1. It had a wider variety of sounds than i expected the set to have, was impressed. 2. Very easy to set up. Cables were even noted to what cymbals they ran to. 3. The USB port on the set is extremely useful for expanding your play. 4. The tempo feature is nice, easy, and comfortable to use. 5. All the toms, cymbals,snare and bass drum, is all customizable, including sound and very easy to do so. 6. Has a recording feature 7. Price, It's what sold me, and really good practice tool for any drumming. What I didn't like about the kit.: 1. The User channel is completely customizable to anything you want which is great, but there's only one channel. You play more than one song with more than 1 type of drums, you can forget it. Or write them down. 2. The preset songs are okay, definitely nothing to get excited over. I wouldn't pay extra money for it. 3. The design of the toms are very awkward, they are facing up and a lot smaller than I intended. 4. The second bass drum/HH pedal, isn't as smooth and quiet as the primary bass pedal. 5. The ride cymbal hangs just over the 2nd tom. The closeness of the two is quite frustrating. 6. Using Double bass, it would frequently stop the cymbals from triggering if played at the same time. 7. One of the toms will rarely and randomly trigger the ride cymbal, not a problem until you start recording. 8. The toms will sometimes trigger other toms, For example, i tried changing the sound of the 1st tom and it kept triggering the 2nd and 3rd tom. ect. 9. The dynamics of the whole kit aren't always even, for example, it would have a loud sound followed after a quiet sound. 10. The snare doesn't always have an even tone. Snare is really quiet, or too loud. Must have excessive pressure to get the sound you want. Overall, It's a pretty decent drum set. But definitely for beginners. Has it's minor flaws, but it does its job.

Good for beginners

By Tom Vahle

from Quincy IL

For the price you can't go wrong with this set. You get what you pay for. There are only minor flaws. The crash doesn't trigger 100% of the time, especially when played with the bass drum. The sound of the cymbals aren't always even, as you'll get a random loud sound followed by softer sounds. The snare is unreliable, you must put excessive power into your strokes to get the powerful sound your looking for, or it's too quiet. Overall, the price is better than any good drum set out there. Great buy for beginners.

Awesome!!! (:

By Samantha Samples

from las Vegas nevada

I bought this for my girlfriend and she loves it!! She's always wanted an electronic drum set, this was on sale and I couldn't resist!!! She plays it everyday. It's not the biggest and best but it has lots of sounds and is small and compact would recommend it!!

Decent practice kit for price

By jason whittaker

from Chillicothe IL

For the price it's not too bad. I bought this just to learn the fundamentals of drumming without the loud volume of a percussion kit. I don't see any other kits in this price range. It could never be used in a band. Problems I have with it: Crash does not always play after the end of a drum roll (always plays by itself though). The snare doesn't respond that well either. The volumes of the drums don't seem accurate, although I believe that can be adjusted. Toms and bass are super loud. The high hat and ride you can barely hear. I have not had any overall volume problems though. Sounds loud through my headphones and my amp. Things I like: metronome, included songs to practice with, price. If I get 3-6 months out of this I will be happy. I suspect the rubber will on the symbols will wear down first. Time will tell. This price for a learning tool is not bad.

Do not buy it

By Claudio de Carvalho Aguiar

from Salvador-BA, Brazil

Before you buy, note the following 1. It does not have a line out, only phone output. The phone output signal is very weak (low volume) even at maximum volume. I tried different headphones. It does not deliver enough output signal power to be connected to the input of an amplifier. Therefore you must keep your drum music to yourself... think about it. 2. You only get the full response out of each pad if you hit the pad exactly in the center. This is worse at the snare drums. 3. The ride cymbal does not sound when played together with the kick drum. This happens when you hit both at the exact same time. 4. It is difficult to get full response from the hi-hat closed and ride cymbal, even after adjusting the individual pad volume to max (12.7). Crash and hi-hat open are ok. You need to hit an exact region of the cymbals in order to get a good sound out of it. It really sucks! 5. I have not yet tried the MIDI USB interface.I will update the review as soon as I have it tested. 6. Please note the pads are rubber and they get outworn if you hit them strong (which you will naturally do due to the lack of response from the pads).
