    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.
