  • which kit?

    im looking to spend no more then 700 and want to have a nice cheap set for an apartment. i dont want anything expensive because it wont be my main kit, just something to mess around with. which of the three would you choose and why?

    and why would you choose it?

    None of the above. There are too many used Roland TD-3s and TD-6s to be had out there in the same general price range. I think those would be better choices. The Yamaha is a good product, but I've never personally been a fan of Yamaha gear.

    Just my two cents.

      When I first considered "e-drums" I looked at the Simmons. I do not think it is made very well and did not sound that good. Note I only played it for 2 minutes (a year ago). My budget was 700 USD but I walked out of the store with a $1,400 TD6V kit (PD-8 pads). I know nothing of the others. If you are going to use them to trigger EZ-drummer I guess the module itself is not important as long as it is MIDI. I don't know if there are different types or levels of MIDI, research that as well ... (general MIDI ...)


      (man I am not really qualified to respond to these types of posts but I am procrastinating doing real work!).

          The best advice I can give you is, try the kits out if you can at a store. Keep in mind electronic drums are like acoustic when it comes to price vs. quality. You get what you pay for. I think a lot of acoustic drummers, who own really nice kits want to dive into electronics but don't want to spend a lot of money, go and buy the cheapest e-kit they can. Once they do that, they then think that all electronic drums suck based on a cheap e-kit purchase. I have a feeling that if you were to try them out you would like the feel of the Yamaha better. What I mean by that is its quality of product. Good Luck!

            A TD-3 kit with an extra cymbal and a kick pedal was sold on eBay a few days ago for exactly $700, so it is remotely possible if you look at used kits.
