Learn the drums with Ion Audio's Sound Session complete electronic drum set--a great choice for those who don't have room for a traditional set of drums or need to keep practice session on the quiet side. Fitting into a fraction of the space of an acoustic drum set, the Sound Session set comes with everything you need to get started playing.

It features natural-feeling drum and cymbal pads as well as foot pedals for hi-hat and bass drum. A rugged, adjustable stand holds the drum and cymbal pads and comes with all the mounting hardware, and the set also includes all the cables you'll need.

The Sound Session set includes a drum-sound module with over 100 different instruments in 15 drum sets. You can modify and save the drum sounds and drum set for totally custom setups. There are 41 play-along music patterns for practicing and jamming out. You can listen to the drum parts on the patterns to get ideas for what to play, then mute the drums and play your own part. Record your drum performance and listen back, and use the built-in metronome for learning to play with a steady beat.

  • Complete electronic drum set

Great set for a beginner.

The item is still under warranty and I have sent an email to ION in hopes that they can simply send me a replacement part.

I bought these as a Christmas gift for my brother, who's in his 40s. He's been a wannabe drummer for a while and has had a few acoustic drums sets, at least one of very high quality--but he's never had an electronic drum set. (He's jammed with bands, but not played professionally.) He had to sell his last and best drum set and hasn't had a set for a long time. Plus he lives in an apartment. So I saw these at Target for $200 and decided to take a chance, thinking I could always return them if they sucked or were broken.

Unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to see him during Christmas and wasn't able to give him the set until 1 week ago, long after I'd lost the receipt, so I was really worried that he wouldn't like them.

Well, I got a call today, after he'd been playing them "hard" for a week and he raved about them. Things he mentioned:

- 100 sounds (each of which is tunable, which I didn't see mentioned in the specs, but was hoping for).
- He says he really beats the s**t out of his drums and he's really impressed that the set so far has no dings, and neither do the sticks or rims of the drums. This, he thinks, is because there is a tube of air around the edges that prevents them from getting damaged.
- Came with headphones (though I'm not sure of the quality). He said I could have mine back. :)
- Came with drum sticks (as mentioned, no dents so far)
- He likes the way the module lights up, so it can help you learn how to play
- Likes that you can remove the drum part from the songs that come with it, so you can "be" the drummer
- Likes that you can plug in an MP3 player
- Likes that you can record your own playing.

this is my first drum set ever, as i had wanted to get my hands busy, and wasn't willing to pay more for the higher end brands. However after a couple of days playing, i realized i may have been penny wise pound foolish. Let me just pen down the pros and cons of this set per my views:

Pros:
1. pricing. it is definitely affordable and a cheap starter kit for ppl who are unsure if they wanted to delve in further, or just get a feel of drumming (where acoustic drums are just not viable)
2. adjustability. the set is such that all pads + footpads are similar, that u can pretty much interswitch anything and adjust the levels/bars anything to be wherever u wanted them to be

Cons:
1. Sound adjustment. the module is fixed, where u can only volume up everything @ 1 go, and not individually. also, there is limited programmability and adjustment on this module. but this is what u would come to expect for the price of this item,
2. Foot pedals. the pedals are too sensitive and sometimes do not match the actual feel of pedals used for bass drums. certain amount of adjustment needs to made for this
3. sensitivity of the snare/hi-hat. since it uses generic single area pads, the sensitivity and effects u can achieve from these 2 pads are limited. this sometimes disallows u from playing the more complexed beats, etc

In conclusion, i did feel that should've invested more on a better drum set (had my eyes on certain Roland sets, etc), but I was heavily budget limited. If you can afford, i would say go for a better quality electronic drum. Else this would do, if u're undecided drumming is something u want to do or not.

Great value for the money. It was a gift for my nephew who has just started taking lessons but as a former professional I was surprised how good the action was for such a reasonable set. The sound quality was also a lot better than I expected considering the price. Great set for a beginner.

I bought this for my husband a month ago for our first anniversary. We have both beaten on it and it takes quite a beating. It comes complete with drumsticks and headphones. It is kind of a pain to put together but when you do, make sure you tighten all of the screws so when you're playing it won't move on you. We have had no problems so far. My only complaint is that it didn't come with a built-in speaker of any sort so you have to buy your own or no one can hear it. Otherwise, it is a great buy!

If your kids like music that is a gret thing, however drums are loud so I decided to get my nine year old son one of these. first off it iis small enough to put in a corner of the room and take up very little space. It is built well enough that you can put a nice thug on the pads and no brusing or marks will appear. power consumption is very low. It sounds great in the supplied headphones and can be adjusted for special sounds. A great set of electric drums to learn from. the kick pedals look cheap but are holding up well. It takes some getting use to but once you have it you got it. It also has pre recorded sounds and has the ability to record as you play. the wire connections will make you go hummm.

Got this kit a few weeks ago and wanted to wait before writing a review. Over all this is a fun kit, But it is for beginners or a kid. I wanted to get something to get me going but didn't want to sink a lot into it. Here's what I think so far...

Pros: Inexpensive, sounds great with the provided head phones, comes with everything you need to get started, and assembles easily. Decent feel on the pads and good response for the most part.

Cons: Not a complete set. Missing a ride cymbol which is a huge thing. Also, as far as I can tell, the harness that comes wiht it is not expandable, so I don't believe you can add more pads. The other big time let down is the action on the pedals. They basically suck. The bass pedal over registers and so does the hi hat pedal. Makes it a little difficult to play.

I'm already starting to see some wear on the pads I hit the most (hi hat and snare)but this can be remedied by switching the pads around every once a while.

I've only had this kit for about a month and play it frequently, but I feel like outgrew it already. I'm looking to upgrade, but It is definitely something you can hand down to a nephew or little brother.

Overall, if you've never played drums and wanted to see what it's like, this is a decent and inexpensive way to get started and explore the instrument. If you are an actual drummer with even mild experience, keep looking. Again, this is a fun kit that I'm sure an aspiring young drummer would love. The parents even more.
