Summary: One of the symbols stopped working and my son no longer uses the drum set. Too bad that the only resolution to this problem is buying a new drum set. All of these products are close to being garbage.
Summary: These drums are so much fun to play-especially with the GH: Metallica game. Unfortunately, the set is nothing more than cheap plastic and cheap electronics. My first set stopped working after 3 months. Cymbals lost almost all sensitivity. I replaced the cymbals, but then the snare drum (red pad) stopped working. I attributed it to me just beating them too much, and bought a new set. Well, the red pad stopped working again after 2 weeks.
Summary: Like most people who bought this game, my drum kit was defective in the most annoying way: The pads don't register some of the hits, so you can be playing the game perfectly and still lose. The manufacturer sent me a midi "drum tuning kit" to solve the problem, but it didn't work at all. Since then, the company has not responded to my inquiries for resolving the problem. My advice is to wait a while until the company gets their act together before buying this game...
great game, horrible durability, defective instruments.

Summary: I purchased the band pack from best buy the first day it was released and was disappointed that the guitar would randomly strum and didm't work correctly. also the red drum pad had to be hit much harder than the others to respond, which was throwing off my game. Then i get a new guitar and game but keep the same drums because the reason didn't "qualify" for new ones even though I'd purchased the extended warranty.
Summary: Having enjoyed Guitar hero for ages, and Rock Band since its release, I found myself looking forward greatly to World Tour, in large part due to its new drumset peripheral with dedicated cymbals and an extra input. The infusion of a more party-centric set of instruments sounded good on paper. Thus, my pre-order of this game with early and full of anticipation.
Summary: Let me say that I own Rock Band 2 as well as purchasing this first thing Sunday..I used to be a bigtime Guitar Hero fan. However, I soon round out, like many others, that the drum kit doesnt work well. Not only that...it does a HORRIBLE job at letting you know how other people are doing, so you may randomly fail while playing through a song and you could be thinking that you were doing awesome. Not so. Dissapointment..
Summary: I preordered this game from Amazon, but impatience got the better of me, and I bought it from Wal Mart on opening day. My review is based on that band kit, but I will be taking it back today. Why, you ask? I played this game through two songs (Sweet Home Alabama and The Joker) and realized something wasn't right. I'm normally a 95% player on medium (On Rock Band 2) and a 90% player on hard. Yet I was scoring in the 60's on medium.
