Nice, but room for improvement
by Andrew James from Sacramento, CAI bought these on a bucket-list whim. Always wanted to play and thought this was good starting point. I have to admit that setup is a snap, and, with a decent set of headphones or amp, the sound is ... read more [+]great. Lots of nice features like expandability, the groove check, and other practice tools. The build your own kit feature is great too, and the drums and individual tones are endlessly editable. My only gripe involves the snare. While clearly aimed at the novice player, the snare completely lacks the ability to hear accents. Hit the head anything over a tap, and you get a clear drum tone. Raise your arm over your head and slam down...you get the same tone. That's just silly. Granted, you can upgrade to the DTX pads and get all of that, but that one pad is at best about $350 and has a different mounting bracket that will set you back another $50. Still...all in all, they are great fun, and I'll be upgrading the snare pad soon enough. close [-]
