Summary: I used the pedal MAYBE 3 times a week and more in the summer, but that is not an excuse because one day I found that the wire was completely severed from the pedal. It just came out really easy. I got a good 6 months out of it and i bought it used, but if i were you, I wouldn't hope to get more. I don't know what it is with these pedals, but they seem to break very easily.
Summary: I bought this game and imported it to Venezuela (costed me 80$ to ship it here). After arriving I opened the box only to find out that the drum set was not working at all. I contacted activision and they told me that they couldn't do anything and recommended me to go to a certain web site that sells spare parts. After it became obvious that the warranty would not work for me I started looking online for repair guides.
Summary: The game is great, the guitar is great, the microphone is great, but the drum set is a piece of garbage. Don't believe me? Go to Google and search "Guitar Hero World Tour Drum Set" and read the millions of complaints. My cymbals stopped working after 2 days, and when I contacted Activision they wanted a proof of purchase to do any repairs. However, I don't have the proof of purchase (it was a gift...) And now I'm out-of-luck.
Summary: Pros: These can be used on both Rock Band Wii games and on Guitar Hero Wii games (Rock Band equipment can only be used for Rock Band Wii games). The pads do provide a nice rebound and are quieter and more realistic than the Rock Band drum. Con: They simply don't provide any reliability in actually registering the beats when you play the game. Ironically, they do better on the Rock Band games than they do on the Guitar Hero games.
Summary: We got this for my 14-year-old son for Christmas and the whole family had fun playing it together. It's great that each player can set his/her own level of difficulty. The fun lasted for 7 days ... and on the 8th day one of the cymbals on the drums stopped working. We switched the two cymbals to see what the problem was -- the cymbal worked when it was switched, so the problem was in the electronics.
The game itself is fun but the guitar controller is lacking in quality

Summary: I find the guitar hero brand of games very enjoyable. The game itself is very fun and has a huge selection of songs. The guitar controller has failed after 1 month. Maybe I got a lemon? The strum bar doesn't work anymore. I had other controllers that are 2 years old and still working fine. That is why I gave it only 1 star for this package. I give the game 4 stars but the controller is not made for the long haul.
Summary: When determining which "band kit" to purchase, I, like everyone else, searched endless reviews online comparing Rock Band and Guitar Hero World Tour. I finally decided on GHWT and made my purchase. The game was great at first, although the drums are too technical to just have friends come over and play if they aren't used to them. Having drummed in the past though, I thought they were great.
It's only been 4 days and the guitar is already malfunctioning!!!

Summary: OK. I liked guitar hero franchise but I didn't buy any guitar hero game myself because of money issue and being an owner of just wii, I didn't like how it didn't have DLC. However, I was so excited for this new guitar hero game because of the custom song editor feature on top of everything it was going to have.
Summary: We are now on our third kit, after less than 3 months. First kit had the common cymbal failure (yellow cymbal), 2nd kit arrived with a non-functioning microphone and after 2 weeks the red drum failed. Hopefully third time lucky... Unfortunately not, returned the whole thing and got my money back...hpoing hardware issues are now fixed, will try again for Christmas 2009!
