Sound: Can sound awesome depending on programming. Output level is lower than most of my other gear. Feature: Best feeling pad. can use hands, brushes, mallets, sticks. They each make it sound different unlike most electronic drums. Ease of Use: It's hard to program as you have to go through several menus with buttons and knobs. Lots of options though. I'd give it a 10 if it had a USB connector to program on a computer. Quality: Seems like it will take a beating and hold up. The head is textured, kind of like an old calfskin head. Looks like it will need replacing sooner than a plastic head would. Value: Considering this use to run $3K 10 years ago, this is a bargain. The rebate helped too. Manufacturer Support: Haven't needed support. The Wow Factor: If you want to create your own sound, this is probably the best option I've seen but don't expect it to program itself. The 100 presets that come with are mostly crap to show off it's possibilities. There are also 100 programmable user patches. Overall: This should give me years of new sound options.

Sound: THE SOUND QUALITY IS TOP NOTCH,THE HEAD AND RIM OF THE UNIT RESPOND WELL TO YOUR HANDS AND STICKS...IT WORKS WELL WITH MY STYLE,BUT AS WITH ALL OF MY ELECTRONIC PERCUSSION I WISH IT HAD MORE IN THE INDUSTRIAL,EXTREME,UNORTHADOX,SOUNDS.....IT WORKS WELL WHEN I USE IT ALONG WITH MY ROLAND PERCUSSION BRAIN,AND MY DRUM KIT,AND SYNTHESIZER SET UP Feature: THE MOST USEFULL FEATURE TO ME IS THE SEQUENCER,AND TOUCH RESPONSE OF THE DRUM HEAD..AND THE EDITING OF EFFECTS.....I WISH IT HAD MORE INDUSTRIAL SOUNDS,AND PERCUSSIVE SOUNDS RATHER THAN DRUM SOUNDS Ease of Use: THE MANUAL IS GOOD...SOUNDS GREAT RIGHT OUT OF THE BOX Quality: WELL MADE,EASY TO USE ALOT OF COOL SOUNDS...GREAT FOR STUDIO-THIS IS WHERE THE UNIT CAN BE VERY USEFULL...GOOD LIVE,BUT IF YOU USE ALOT OF SOUNDS AT THE SAME TIME YOU WILL NEED MORE THAN ONE Value: I THINK IT DEPENDS ON WHAT YOU WANT TO GET OUT OF IT,HOW YOU WANT TO APPLY IT TO YOUR SET UP...SINCE I DO NOT USE DRUM SOUNDS,FOR ME IT SHOULD SELL FOR A BIT LESS Manufacturer Support: I HAVE HAD NO PROBLEMS YET The Wow Factor: I OWN ONE....VERY COOL LOOKING,MODERN AND SLICK.THE RESPONSE OF THE HEAD IS A GRET TOOL..IE PRESSING ON IT HOLDING IT DOWN ECT...FOR MY STYLE THIS IS A MUST HAVE..BECAUSE EVEN THOUGH I WISH IT HAD A LITTLE MORE IN THE AREA OF INDUSTRIAL SOUNDS,IT IS ESSENTIAL TO MY SET UP Overall: I WILL KEEP THIS UNIT IN MY COLLECTION OF E PERCUSSION,BUT I KNOW I WILL ALWAYS SEARCH FOR UNORTHADOX SOUNDS
