Great starter kit, despite having intermediate features

Summary: Alesis has been known for being affordable, unfortunately we have seen that it usually is accompanied by a bunch of kinks and iffy quality. This kit is absolutely an exception to that reputation. This is an intermediate level kit, it has multizone crash and ride, and has room for an extra trigger.
Summary: I recently purchased this set, it is great. I like it more than my real drum set most of the time. It has a lot of great features and feels like you are playing a real set, no doubt about it. Great quality and easy to put together. I would definitely recommend it to any drummer.
Poor packaging, but great customer service. Drum set good too!

Summary: Bottom line, the drum set is great! This arrived from UPS in TERRIBLE shape. The box was torn, banged up, and taped in many places. I was worried that it would be broken, have missing pieces, or both. Customer service was fast and courteous. Turns out, nothing was missing and the set works fine.
Summary: I've had a Yamaha DTXpress setup for years. In my opinion, this drum set is a better product. First of all, the looks of these drums are amazing. When I look at the 12", 10", and 8" pads, the set looks like I spent 3k on it. The feel of the real head pads are great.
