Don't overlook the Yamaha electronic kits. You get a lot of bang for the buck, and the sounds are better than the Roland kits. Mesh heads are a great marketing tool, but they feel nothing like an acoustic drum......you may as well put triggers on a tennis raquet.
Yamaha kita start at around $699 for a DTXPLORER with a pedal included, there are five different kits in their line-up. Take a look at www.dtxperience.com, there's some good video clips there.

I have mixed feelings about you... It's not really spam... But it kind of is... Carry on.

Except he's right, Yamaha DOES make good electric kits and even better prices. It never hurts to have an industry insider posting here, quit scaring him away.

I have an sd5k i bought two years ago. The kick trigger shit the other day and Simmons does not sell parts for their kits at this time!!
Pretty much junk.

Yep, and it looks like all they changed was the number of drums, and lay out of the brain.

hi everyone! (first post) Im in the market for an electronic kit that i can have setup full time in one of my bedrooms for "practice" only... it will never see a gig. I was considering the sd9k, however after reading this thread... and playing on one at Guitar Center... im thinking NOT. Can you guys give me some advice? I dont know alot about electronic kits... however, im looking to spend anywhere from 1000 up to 1500. Currently im thinking of getting a used DTXtreme IIs off ebay. (they've been going around 1500). Is there something better out there in the same price range? Some things i definitely want: 1. sensitivity... this is why i hated the sd9k. 2. alot of sounds dont mean that much to me... i'll prolly set it up to ONE good sounding kit and never change it. 3. The module should have enough jacks to makeup a 6 piece kit with ride and 2 crashes. any advice is greatly appreciated.... and im sorry for thread jacking. p.s. anyone know anything about the Hart Dynamics drums?

Hello all, I had the DISpleasure of playing the
NEW Simmons drums on Saturday 10-4-08.
Although, I liked the simmons 1, 2 and 3 sounds IN the module,
it did NOT TRACK/PLAY half of the notes that I PLAYED on it.
The Simmons 1, 2 and 3 had the 1980`s Simmons sounds,
number 4 did NOT sound ANYTHING like 1980`s simmons.
I don`t know WHY it did NOT track the notes that I played,
1. the pick-ups suck!
2. the module is NOT good!
3. the sensitivity needs to adjusted,
4. OR a combination of ALL of these.
THAT SAID, I would NOT buy these!
IF, you`re looking for that 1980`s Simmons sound,
I think you need to look on ebay for the
drum pads and Module, then you won`t have to buy this
CHEAP piece of crap!
NOW, can we FINALLY close this thread?

I love that he's here... And I do love pretty much anything that says yamaha on it... But, is it spam? Or is it answering biasdly? I will agree that the DTX kit is probably the best at that price.
