Summary: As a semi-pro musician, I wanted to learn drums as well, so I asked Santa to bring me this for Christmas. It is a great drum kit especially for the price (look around - just prior to Christmas 2011, it could be found for 399 direct from Amazon).
Summary: This was a much better purchase than I was expecting in some ways, especially for the price. The sounds really aren't that bad, even though they're limited. They did a very good job of choosing diverse voices for different styles. This is not an expandable kit though, which is a let down.
For the price, perfect for beginners/apartment dwellers.

Summary: I've been playing drums for 15 years and never thought I would own an electronic kit without dropping at least a grand, but a friend had recently bought this kit and I was blown away at the quality for the price. Let me first say that you can shop around and find a better price than offered here.
Summary: I bought a "toy" drum set to put in my music room for 80 dollars at Target. Aside from pounding on bongos, I've never played the drums, but, I had fun with the toy. So, I upgraded to this affordable kit. I can't stay away from it.
Summary: For basic use the 19 year old drummer says it is good. In more detail, when the snare and the hihat triggers are hit at the same time, the hi hat doesn't respond. Other then that,it is good for the price.
Summary: We've had a band for about 4 years ... Keyboard, Lead, Rythem and Base Guitar we've just added a drummer. To ease practice sessions I purchased the DM6 to travel to our practice loctions. Love the set, sound, quality and portability.
Summary: This is an excellent set for a beginner, or for folks like me, moving to electronic from acoustic. It's easy to set up and has good adjustment points on all parts. Nice and compact, and can be folded up for moving or storage. Pros: Adjustments, good sound, good feel and responsiveness, good price.
Summary: THIS THING IS OK,YOU HAVE TO HIT THEM PRETTY GOOD TO GET EM,THE SNARE IS LIKE A $270 WORTH,THE ONLY THING ABOUT IT HI HATS SOUNDS SMALLER,BUT ITS A OK INVESTMENT AND FOR $400 CANT GO WRONG AND YOU DONT NEED TO BANG APARTMENT NEIGHBORS.
