Summary: How was I to know that this could be so much fun and at my age too?! It was relatively easy to plug up considering I'm writing the idiot's guide to all this new electronic stuff but then I tested it out and WOW! THESE DRUMS ARE FUN!!! I'm thinking that nobody is going to hear from me for a very long time.
Summary: The HD-1 is a nice kit for the money, but understand the difference between this and the next steps up the TD-4K2 or the TD-4KX2. The mesh heads are really nice in that they are sensitive and you can get a real feel for the drum. The triggers are just that - triggers. They "trigger" the A or B sound from the module, and they really don't have much touch to them.
Summary: All that stuff about not being able to adjust the sound on individual pads and cymbals being to low. If you do the research that should not be a suprise when you purchased it. yes it dos suck but this is what the kit is a small, limited kit for the people who can not afford $2K for a regular vdrum kit that has all the option. OVER ALL THIS IS A GREAT KIT and sounds great. DEFINATLY WORTH THE PRICE.
Summary: Out of the box it took about half an hour to get up & drumming. There are no headphones or monitor, no seat, and no sticks, so you're going to need all those things too. There are 10 preprogrammed kits, and only 4 of them would ever be used for real playing. The basic kit sounds are good; I wish the snare rimshot was programmed differently from the head, and I wish the cymbals could be choked by hand.
Summary: Its a good stater set however the cymbals dont work very well. they're pretty quiet but exist. Also there is only one setting that has a double bass pedal (which also has the cowbell there ale many useless combinations like that. since the kits cant be altered it becomes a pain.
Summary: I bought this electronic drum kit for my 14 yr old daughter for her birthday along with the accessory package and the personal monitor. It was expensive, but definitely worth the money. The drum kit has amazing sound quality, is relatively easy to set up, and it takes up very little space in our apartment. The only thing she needs now is a music stand, but that will be easy enough to get.
Summary: I LOVE this drums. I bought them for my husband so I didn't have to put up with all the noice. Setting it up was a breeze!! My hubby had it up and running in less than an hour. I't comes with everything you need to set it up, even a screw driver! He is ecstatic with the sound quality. I really recommend it!!
Small, portable, quality ok, but lacks in settings

Summary: Overall it's a great practice kit, but the lack of config settings both in hardware as in the sound (software) is a real pain. For instance, the cymbals, and especially the ride, is very low in volume. You can only change the overall volume, and overall pad sensitivity, not specific pad volume or sensitivity.
Summary: I owned a yamaha dtxpress 3 before this and i will never go back, this is the best thing you can get for portability and if you need something quiet. I will choose my acoustic kit any day but this has been great for my needs. It has 10 kits but at least 4 are very useable. The main con is the pedals feel like a rock band kit. But I posted a review on you tube with a tutorial on how to make the pedals better. hope it helps. [...
