    i've still kept some HXM cymbal pads, and a hihat pad.. in combination with an fd-7 ..because i thought 'wow' that stuff is pretty good,
    triggers fine and 'low' noise.. and a good feel when you hit it.. it doesn't have to be expensive to be good.. but some stuff when it is cheap
    it is 'rubbish' (like medeli cymbals.. that's just 'toys') wrong choice of materials.. or manufacturing just for looks, and not playability..

You can record and practice at home with your cheap e kit and the great sounds from the vst and then play live on an acoustic kit and practice more intricate stuff on the acoustic kit as well for way less money.
    I don't think anyone was talking about value.
    I personally wouldn't use Roland and "value for money" in the same sentence.
    I have thankfully followed Justin's advice not to buy Roland stuff new and I'm perfectly happy with that. Even managed to flip some of the pads after months of using them.

    well...
    there are two obvious things here
    1 - obviously, for you, it makes no sense to spend more money on a instruments with a better feel.
    2 - obviously, for some other people, it makes sense =) Thus all these companies on the market.

    I mean - there is are hardly any point for discussion here, you do like apples, I do like oranges, who is right? )))

    I mean - you can just draw the midi with a mouse in a DAW then? )))

I seriously doubt many people have actually played medeli drums with a vst . I have played on a TD-50KVX , mps-850 , kat plastic pads, yamaha 502k and they all triggered the same through superior drummer.

    Hi!
    Just a note regarding the speed light kit...I had the opportunity to test it for a 10-20 minutes at 2box ...and all I can just say that I did not got the feeling of something very cheap...it was actually triggering extremely well and felt very solid and good. Toms was fantastic and also the cymbals. Maybe the kick could have been better...it was moving over the floor during the tests...(no drum rug under)

    Best regards

    second that (used to work in a store where they sold HXM) the rubber (cymbals) feel is very good,
    robust, good dynamics (possibility) and not too much noise.. ok, they don't swing..
    hxm did have cr*ppy module.. but they improved that now with 2box (multi samples, no machine gun)
    this should be very good for an 'intermediate' e-kit..

    The kit is made by HXM from Thailand.
    Here's their version with their own module:
    https://www.hxmthailand.com/product/e-drum-hxm-xd-450c/

    i have a small cymbal and a small rubber pad from HXM, and the quality is very nice, sturdy construction and triggers perfectly.

    I'm sure that this kit combined with the Drumit module would be quite the performer at the lower cost it should sell.
    The 450 kit sells for 22,000 Thai bath. That's about $725 usd. Factor in the higher cost of the Drumit module to get a good idea of the price.
