Summary: I was very excited when i bought this, but when i got it it had to be assembles completely. It was super hard to put together in the first place. Then i started playing on it, and no matter how much i tightened the knobs on the drums, they slide off, and down when i play on them. Also the main frame doesnt stay together. Also the cords are a disaster. The cords tangle on everything. Also for such an expensive drumset you would expect it to be wireless, which it is not.
Summary: I purchased these drums for my 15 yr. old son who had been wanting drums for 3 years. He is a beginner and seems to be very happy. It took about an hour for setup, but after that he was on his way. The drums are sturdy and I also purchased a throne seat to go along with it. It was a wonderful purchase... very quiet - I don't even hear him playing. I usually don't write reviews, but the reviews is what made me make the decision to buy this set.
Summary: The game was easy to set up and get working. The instructions are basic picture based, but are easily followed. The set up can be adjusted for individual users. The product description listed that it came with the necessary components to make it a stand alone drum set, but it did not.
Summary: When this item was ordered, the description, cost and pictures did not match. ION was kind enough to take the order back but I was disappointed due to the fact I could not get the item advertised.
Summary: As stated by other reviewers, Amazon's description confuses the Pro Session set (stand-alone electronic drum kit) and the Drum Rocker set (connects to console for Rock Band game). I was hoping, from the description, that this was a set that I could use for both. Alas, no. What came was the Pro Session set (IED 12). *Note: I bought the set in June 2011 for $299, and it was the Pro Session that came. It sounds like other reviewers may have received the Drum Rocker.
Summary: This item was unable to be ordered for a while because there were some discrepancies about which kit this was.. Well amazon finally figured it out, (I thought) and so I ordered what I thought was the drum kit for the wii. IT IS NOT! This is the kit with the module that makes drum sounds. (IED12) I repeat this is NOT the IED09 as the description states! I cant mail it back either because of a unique situation I am in..
Summary: I bought this for my 7 yr old son. It looks ok. I initially thought that this set can be used as standalone. As I was intending to give some drum pratice for my son. Once I received the box, I have realised that this is Wii game. I searched through the net and a lot of reading before I can get this working as a standalone drum set with the help of my PC. The sound is good, the hi-hat and the cymbals are not that sensitive.
Summary: There seems to be some confusion between product description, pictures, and the actual product. I ordered this based on the product reviews and pictures, which seemed to indicate an ION IED12 PRO SESSION drum kit. My receipt showed IED12 as described. The different gaming consoles were available. I picked Wii but other reviews seemed clear - this was a standalone with an IED12 brain. NOT the case.
Summary: First, before I start this review, I'm gonna let you know that I'm a thirteen-and-a-half year old writing this review from my Mom's account (with her permission, of course.) Also, while the description on Amazon says it's a Drum Rocker for Wii, it isn't. This is the Pro Session Electronic Drum Set. This set is excellent. I'm not a beginning drummer, and this set has pretty much everything i would want in an electronic drum set. It sounds great.
Summary: I revised this review from yesterdays.I had the hi hat wires crossed,I switched them and it works fine now.They are marked wrong.This kit is awesome for the money,I use a 200 watt bass amp for this and it sounds great.I love the line in for the mp3 player and the head phones.I can jam anytime to favorite tunes.I hope this lasts for years it seems very well constructed,no cheap parts that I can see.If you get this kit the hi hat cables may be labeled incorrectly.My cable...
