What We Think
I always thought that acoustic drum kits had the upper hand on electronic kits but I've been proved wrong. The mesh heads on this kit are super touch sensitive, so you can even manage drum rolls. The cymbals choke which is also great. All the different voices and kits make for great fun and entertainment as well as proper practise. On top of it all, the aesthetic of the kit is first-rate and looks great in any room.
