Overall: This kit has 10 different drum kit sounds, and the sound quality is really quite good! As a drummer who has always used acoustic drums, the inability to position the heads exactly where you want them is a little annoying, especially the snare. Other than that, even the pedals are decent. Another negative is that the bass drum volume is a little to high, and cannot be adjusted. Overall though, the set is a blast to play, and is a great start for beginners and kids.

Overall: PROS: for the price of one good guitar pedal, you get a functional drum kit that sounds amazingly good via PA and in phones, the first two sets are the only ones that sound like real drums, has all the outputs and inputs you need, small size, good training and coaching tracks to learn how to drum, lights up in dark and looks cool to kids CONS: bass drum is way too loud in the mix and it can not be turned down individually, can not do rim shots since the rim is actually a plastic light, snare is way way off to the side and it cannot be placed in between your knees (frame will not allow that positioning), made of light plastic and seems like a kids toy for a video game, not sure if it will last beyond 6 months OVERALL: good for really really young kids, like kindergarten and first and second graders maximum, otherwise spend a few more hundred bucks and move up the line. That is what I ended up doing thanks to good customer care a zzounds.

Overall: Being producer + composer professionally - but not being a drummer - I purchased this for my 4 year old + to my self to be honest:) I have long time wished for some digital drums, certainly being to much of a cheap ass, buying the real pro stuff. If I had had to live with the Alesis drum module I would probably have been less happy. The individual drum levels a really annoying (for my taste) - kick way to loud, snare to low, and no possibility to change that - at least not within the module, as far I can tell. So to start with, I was not so happy to be honest. But having some pro sequence progr. + a pro drum progr. (superior drummer) I was really very much delighted to find, that plugging the usb into my mac starting the programs, resulted in instant great sound and no hassles at all!! (I have read that Maverick OS is another story, for now at least) With a little additional tweaking the levels - I must say it exceeds what I hoped for. Sure, buying a pro set, will most defiantly give a greater dynamic and trigger sensibility - but for the price I can only recommend it - thats with my but's in mind though.

Overall: Horrible sound. Snar drum is very weak. You can actually here the drum sticks hitting the pads over the headphones. Not good at all. Very over priced.
