Top notch sounds and feel
by Mike B from VirginiaThis is one heck of a set for the pricepoint. I hooked my set up to a Yamaha Motif ES keyboard via midi and now have endless drum sounds, I also trigger samples. The set is solidly built, and is repon... read more [+]sive for the $ you pay. I've had mine for 10 months and its great.The only thing I hate about this set is the cheezy looking pizza-styled cymbals. close [-]

One of the best things to mess around with

Great thing is I can plug in my ipod and equ... read more [+]al out the noise on the drums to play along. This set is worth the price. close [-]

Great addition to my studio
by Phil Gould from Central IowaI purchased this drum set for use in my recording studio. Since my studio is small, I need to make the best use of space possible. The footprint on this set is much smaller than an acoustic set and I ... read more [+]don't have to hassle with setting up a mixer to feed my digital recorder. Just two cables between the drum set and the recorder and I'm ready to go. I love the feel of the pads and the preset sounds are sufficient for just about any playing style. But for those who like to tinker, the module allows you to create your own kit by assigning different voices to the pads, as well as changing other parameters.

My only knock so far as been with the internal memory backup battery. I got the "battery low" warning and saw in the manual where they advise contacting the nearest service center or the dealer where the drums were purchased. Fortunately, I'm an electronic technician and have voided more warranties than I'd care to mention. Just thought I'd mention that replacing the battery is not something just anyone should attempt as it requires disassembling the module. close [-]
by Eddie fromWell, where the DTXplorer beats the competition in the entry level E-drum market is in the editing. The Roland V-3 kit may have great sounds, but you cannot even so much as tune the drums voices, no p... read more [+]itch control whatsoever! The stock sounds on the DTX are good for the most part, I used to own a DTXpress 3 special and feel as though the acoustic drums sounds of the DTXplorer are just as good, just not as many. You can't do cymbal chokes, all pads are single zone (though you can upgrade the snare to a 80-s pad and get snare/rim dual triggers), the triangle cymbal pads are cheesy, but overall I'd take this kit over the Roland T3 simply for the editing. Being able to edit the pitch of the drum samples trumps anything the T3 has to offer imo. close [-]
