At 46 I'm new to drums. Wanted an electronic kit for noise control. What I got was a kit with fantastic sound and response. I did a lot of research on different kits before I decided to purchase this one. The bang for the buck, that I could afford, is fantastic. I plug in my phone or laptop for video lessons and to play along with songs as I learn them. Haven't got into customizing personal kits with the DTX502 yet, but there are plenty of preprogrammed kits to choose from to get me going and keep me going. The realistic sound coming from the Simmons DA50 amp or Yamaha HPT-MT7 headset I added are both unbelievable.
Easy, straight forward setup, and away I went. Extremely pleased with this kit.
