"affordable, portable digital drums, works well for my use cases"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I like how portable these drums are, and they sound pretty good! Very easy to pack up and take with me. I don't use the included pedals -- those aren't great, really. But the kit works with the pedals from a Roland V-Drum kit, and that's very nice. The drum surfaces feel pretty good, much like a practice pad. It also has MIDI output, so it works as a Rock Band video game controller, if you like playing Rock Band. (you need a MIDI adapter for that) My one complaint is that when you're starting out, it's a bit easy to hit the plastic parts of the drum rather than the rubbery drum surfaces, and that makes a loud clacking sound. It would have been nice if they made the rubbery part wrap around the edges of the drum surfaces on top.

hobbyist drummer, been ambiently playing music for years
