I visited Guitar Centre to check some digital drums to add to my home studio. Luckily I met an experienced drummer (also a customer) in the shop who told me these were the best and also at a great price. I bought them on Amazon to save some money. I've now had them 3 weeks. No problems. Easy to set-up. Feels like I'm playing a real kit with the advantage that I can turn down the volume and not annoy the wife! I have not recorded them onto my studio tracks yet but so far they are great!!

Living in an apartment in the city, I used to have a regular acoustic drum kit, but wasn't a fan of the neighbors, who called the cops on me more than once. I sold the kit and used the money to buy this electronic kit on the recommendation of a friend. I'm so glad I did! This is a great value for the money, and is perfect for apartment living. It's compact (taking up MUCH less space than the old acoustic kit), and even folds up if you need to stick it in a closet. It's got 32-preset kits, over 200 unique drum sounds, a metronome, pre-loaded songs (which you can remove the drum track or isolate the bass to play along with), and several unique features to help you improve your playing. The pads have a nice feel, with solid rebound, very similar to an acoustic kit. It even comes with a bass pedal -- a $70 value.

You'll need an external amp to generate sound, but it also has a headphone jack if you want to jam into the night and not get a visit from the police. It has an aux input for a cd or mp3 player, so you can play along with your favorite songs as well.

If you're a serious drummer, you're gonna want an acoustic kit. But this is a great practice kit, or a great kit for people who live in a city apartment (like me). I can't say enough about this kit. Great value, a great product.

Verified Purchase
I'd recommend this kit to any drummer who lives in an apartment building or has roommates. Not exactly a high end electronic kit, the DTXplorer nevertheless does its job: it allows you to play and practice in relative silence. The kit is very simple and small, which is great because it takes up very little space and is very portable. For the price, it makes an excellent practice kit. You can run the kit through an amp to create sound, or you simply plug in your headphones and reduce the volume even more. An AUX jack allows you to plug in an mp3 player so you can rock out to your favorite songs. There are about 30 or so drum sounds to select from, but more than half are fairly useless and/or too bizarre to be helpful.

Despite the usefulness of this kit, it does have a few problems you'd expect for the price. The bass drum has a weird "lip" that prevents you from using your own pedals (at least, none of MY other pedals would work). You have to use the pedal supplied, which is fairly low quality. The hi hat pedal is probably the worst part of the kit. It's response is awful, so making hi hat "chirp" sounds is harder than it should be. Complicated open/shut hi hat patterns will sound pretty bad. Also, the kit is not expandable with the current brain. There are only enough inputs for the drums provided, so what you get is what you will have forever.

All in all, I'd say get this if you want a cheap but serviceable practice set. I think it's been well worth the money I spent. I can practice much more than I used to, and it still works great even after a year of heavy use. I think it's a great buy if you don't expect miracles.

So i just bought a dtexplorer and so far its been great. I have heard good things about them and needed an electric set to practice with to not disturb my room mates. The set feels great and sounds great. It has 32 pre set drum settings but i have only found that maybe 5 or 6 of them are actually useful, some of them are just weird but fun to play around with. If you need an electric set to practice i would highly suggest this set, because it sounds great and the price is right. Although if you are a professional and need one to record, or are in need of a really technical set this isnt for you. there are a few problems i have found so far. the first is that the hi hat peddle isnt very responsive but not too bad. another is that the lug nuts come loose now and again. other than that though the set is great.

After awhile researching the various options, I'm pleased with my purchase of the Yamaha DTXplorer. I was tempted by the Roland TD-4K, which is more expensive. But while we were at the drum store trying out the various models, my kids gravitated more towards the Yamaha. As a drummer in my college years, I wanted something for myself, but also a kit to inspire my children to play. The Yamaha had some fun sounds that, at least in the store, I couldn't get out of the Roland. I really do enjoy the feel of playing this kit. As mentioned by another reviewer, the hi-hat is not always as sensitive as it could be (but it may just require more adjustment). With this set you cannot choke the cymbals and do other things like on the Roland, but I do enjoy jammin' to classic rock tunes on my iPod. And, the kids are playing it as well. In general, I wish they would add a feature whereby you can download additional drum sounds - or even kits from specific drummers. The Charlie Watts/Keith Moon/Neil Peart collection....Imagine the possibilities.
