Product Description

It's true what they say: practice makes perfect. What they don't say is, practice also makes noise, especially if you're practicing on the drums! While daily practice will undoubtedly benefit your playing, it's not quite as enjoyable for those who have to listen to you master that one fill over and over. If you want to keep your snare rolls sharp while also keeping your housemates happy, the Ion Audio IED01 5-Piece Electronic Drum Kit is the perfect solution.

Electronic drum kits typically cost thousands of dollars, putting them out of the reach of many beginner and semi-pro percussionists, but not the Ion Audio IED01. Ion Audio has made it their mission to bring professional audio solutions to the masses, and the IED01 lets anyone enjoy the benefits of a full-sized, virtually silent drum set for practice or home recording. Best of all, it comes with everything you need to start jamming right away.

Complete Drum Package
You'll be able to hit the ground drumming when you get your all-inclusive Ion Audio IE01 electronic kit. The sturdy and fully adjustable rack frame supports the five rubberized trigger pads. Two foot-pedals are included, one for the hi-hat and one for the kick. All necessary wiring is provided to hook up to the included "brain," and you even get a pair of sticks and a set of high-quality headphones. All you'll need is a space to set them up and an outlet to plug into! Should you ever decide to expand your kit, Ion Audio makes affordable, high-quality cymbal and pad triggers that can be added to your setup in a cinch.

Inspired Practice
The IED01 is powered by the IDM01, Ion Audio's easy-to-use, realistic-sounding drum machine "brain." With 233 onboard sounds, practice has never been more fun! To help recreate the feel and response of real drums, the Ion Audio Five-Piece Electronic Kit utilizes what's called "Dynamic Articulation." Simply put, as you strike the trigger pads harder, you not only get an increase in volume, but a shift in the basic tonal characteristic of the sound. This results in a more realistic-sounding performance, and a more effective practice for drummers working on their dynamics control. For working on rhythm, the IDM01 is pre-loaded with 50 preset patterns to play along with. The IDM01 also lets you record and store your own patterns as you start coming up with your own grooves--not just a cool song-writing feature, but an indispensable tool for self-evaluating your own-playing!

Home Studio Tool
In addition to storing patterns, the Ion Audio IED01 drum kit brain offers full MIDI connectivity. With MIDI you can hook your electronic drum set up to most recording software and trigger software samplers and virtual instruments. You may not have a drum room in you home studio setup, but that doesn't mean you can't have great-sounding drum tracks in your projects. With the IE01 triggering your software instruments, you'll get a more realistic-sounding performance, because playing the Ion Audio electronic kit is more like playing on a real acoustic set. Your songs will come to life like you never thought possible.

The Ion Audio IED01 Five-Piece Electronic Drum Kit is the quickest and easiest way to get into drumming. You get the feel of playing on an acoustic kit and the convenience and flexibility of an electronic kit, all at a price that makes the IED01 as easy to own as it is to play!

4 out of 5 (429 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
"Great kit, worth every penny. Must find better kick pedal."
Sound: It really does sound good. For what it is and the cost, I would buy another again if I had to. There are many different sounds of drum kits that are easy to find and use. Its a very strong sounding kit and it sounds great. Feature: The ONLY flaw this kit has is the foot pedals. When used as a bass pedal they double tap while playing sometimes which really bugs when you are playing a good song. Its got everything you need to start playing. It would be nice if they included another pad assembly for a floor tom. It certianly is no toy. The module looks small in the pics, but its a good 9 inches wide. It can produce almost any kit you can think of. The pads are tap sensitive. If you hit softer, they play softer. If you hit them hard, they sound hard. The bars that hold it togeather are metal and its real sturdy. Definitly a good sounding kit. Ease of Use: Its very easy to use. Other then the pedals, I am sure you can replace one with a Alesis DM5 Pro pedal. This kit plays along real easy and is very accurate with a real acoustic drum kit. You can play fast, slow and it picks up the sound fine. Quality: I can't complain, I got the kit for a great price. It would be nice if the clamps that hold the frame togeather were metal. The plastic ones work fine, but that extra strength wouldn't hurt. The pads are built strong and will last a long life of pounding. Value: This kit is the best value for the money. You won't find a better kit for the price. With an investment in a better foot pedal, this kit can keep up with the best of em. Manufacturer Support: I sent the website 2 emails in the last week and haven't herd squat. Also the ion forum is down and is never working. The Wow Factor: Its a real basic setup. Its not breath taking, but it gets the job done. Overall: I will play this kit until it breaks beyond repair, while taking care of it of course. I plan on getting an Alesis DM5 Pro kit when I upgrade from this one.

"Good for the price - is great for practice - isn't top quality, but what can you expect in this price range"
Sound: For the price, the sound quality is pretty good. It has the alesis drum brain... There aren't a million drum sounds, but enough to get a good basic drum set sound. Feature: The rack system and parts aren't going to win in a "tuff" contest, but do their job. The kick pedal, hardly can call it a kick pedal.......is the weakest link in this set. It isn't very accurate and will "double kick sometimes". I wanted a double kicker anyway, so I bought a kick trigger to work with my double pedal. This made the set about 10 times better. The pads are actually pretty nice. They have good response to them and have a good rebound. Ease of Use: This is VERY easy to set up. The drum machine takes some time to get used to, but that is the way they all are. Quality: It isn't close to the best electronic drum set, but what can you expect for $250-$300? For the price there really aren't any other electronic sets out there. This will get get the job done and is pretty fun to play. Value: Don't expect a top of the line roland set....how could you for how cheap this set is priced. If you are like me and don't have much extra $$$, this set will do it's job. It is great for practice if you don't have room for a real drunm kit to be setup. Also, it is great if you have neighbors that don't care for a constant 4/4 beat! Manufacturer Support: Don't know, never have called for support. The Wow Factor: It's not going to win any beauty contests, but it gets the job done. Overall: This set is good for people who want to learn how to play the drums or just have to practice with. I don't think they are very gig worthy, but could be used. For the price, you don't have many options in this price range. That being said, if this is all you can afford, go for it. You will want to upgrade the kick pedal, believe me!
