"Great little practice set"

Overall: 5 out of 5 stars
(see rating details)
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Finally pulled the trigger and ordered this for something to practice on without making a big fuss around the house. We have multiple acoustic drum sets at my house (my 2 sons and I all play drums). Was wanting something that could set up and move around without lot of hassle. Got these for that purpose. Great little practice set. The practice loops are pretty good. Like the fact that I can hook up to my mac and get tons of drum sets and sounds. The included sounds and kits are o.k. but not something I would really utilize if using these for a live performance. The mesh heads are really great and feel good. Make sure you tweak them up a bit from the way they come out of the box. All in all you can't go wrong for this price point. Will probably add the expansion pack just for the extra cymbal pad and an extra pad for tom. Love zZounds. Have bought many items and always have good service and quick delivery.
