The pads are very durable I have been bangign away on the heads and they still look new. I've been using it for little over a week, several hours a day. The ability to position the heads and cymbals is great. Once you start really getting into it you will appreciate the fact that they are easily adjustable. Connecting the cables to the pads is a piece of cake and the cables are labeled and correct lengths so not much in the way of confusion as the cables won't reach the wrong pad. might be nice to include some straps or ties to arrange the cables nice and neat. The bass drum pedal did require a little time to understand how it is supposed to go together. My bass drum pedal came apart due to a screw on the bottom that controls the responsiveness of the pedal. I just tightened it back up and problem was solved. The bass pedal and hi hat pedals are nice and secure and won't move very easily on carpet. I haven't used them on my hardwood floors and I doubt I will as the hi-hat pedal has velcros strips on the bottom that will scratch hardwood. The bass drum pedal has pointed screws that are designed to dig into carpet to maintains position, so probably not a good idea to use on hardwood floors. The throne was a pain in the rump to assemble it would have been much easier if it had come with the tool to loosen and tighten the keyed screw/bolts. Being the newbie that I was, I didn't know that it required a special tool so I grabbed the closest set of pliers I could find.
The sounds are great and to my untrained ear sound just like the real thing. There are a lot of sounds to choose from and the play along tracks are pretty cool , I like tracks 4 and 12 the best! Its pretty easy to pick up basic drumming techniques although getting the hand to foot coordination was a bit of a challenge, but like everything else will take a little practice...don't give up! I got the headphone bundle and am very pleased with the headphones. The volume of the unit is more than adequate. Even though it is not a true drum set it can still be loud to others as you are still banging on it. I purchased a aux cable to use with my cell phone and youtube to play along with actual songs, it works great!! The first song I started to play is "Down with the sickness" Oma gurrr!! It's awesome!
Now for the couple things that I did find that could be improved. I imagine these things are not a problem in higher end sets. I did encounter a small amount of buzzing from the snare drum pad, but it's not that bad, and It comes and goes depending on what device (cell phone or mp3 player) I have connected to it. Tapping on the frame will trigger unwanted drum sounds from nearby pads or cymbals, but you aren't supposed to be drumming on the frame so not a big deal.The Hi Hat pedal and cymbal seemed to sometimes have a out of sync response as sometimes I would have the pedal pressed down and the hi hat would still sound like it was in the open position, could also be user error. That's it!
I am really enjoying this set and I plan to keep practicing with it. I'm glad I chose this set and I think you will be too! Here's a tip if you want to show off your newly acquired drumming skills invest in a stereo aux cable splitter so you can have more than one set of headphones connected at once. This will allow you and a buddy to hear your drumming at the same time. Unless you plan on purchasing an external speaker.
I have no idea what to rate this yet. I've practiced a few times a day for several weeks, and I've noticed several weaknesses that the kit has, but I can't tell if they are intentional or not.
- The kick drum needs to be lined up carefully. The beater should hit as close to the center as possible, or else it doesn't trigger with much volume.
- The snare has the rim hit, which seems to be much quieter than other hits. I found eventually that the sensor for that seems to be only in one portion of the edge of the snare. And yet, the drum brain reports that it recognizes the hit.
- The hi-hat pedal is a mystery to me. The triggering sound is nice. Hitting the open hi-hat and choking it with the pedal is great. But if I try to play a beat like the one for Be My Baby, once I reach the point where the hi-hat pedal is playing every quarter note, the pedal can't keep up with it. It looks like it uses a magnetic trigger, and sometimes I can get it to trigger fast enough if I move my foot completely off the pedal and push back on fast.
- There are volume issues. Some drums are drastically louder than others. I've been running these through an amp that allows me to push some EQing, which does help. But there's a huge volume difference between the floor tom and the bass drum.
However, the pads actually feel very nice. They're just rubbery enough that there's a nice little rebound, but they don't feel sticky at all.
The pedals are designed well enough that I haven't had problems with them sliding around. The frame is very adjustable, which does help a lot.
It's good for getting my feet wet, but it does leave me wondering if I should have put more money into this.
