This drum kit is great for what it is. I mainly use it for small home studio use. There is a suprisingly realistic (considering the price) soundbank on it that can be upgraded to pro quality via external sound modules or software. The layout is more natural for a drummer than most sets like this that are flat (I replaced one with this). You do have to be careful how you strike the pads or there will be mis-hits, but being forced to be accurate is not a bad thing. The pads have a bounce similar to a practice pad. The pedals that come with it take some getting used to, but they are useful and can be upgraded if needed. My biggest issue is that the internal speakers are useless. The sound is tinny and is completely drowned out by the tapping of the sticks. I get around this problem by using a small pair of powered studio monitors when playing music with others and studio headphones when practicing on my own. Overall, I am pleased with this unit and I highly recommend it.
