      Two years ago, when I first thought about getting an e-drum kit, money was a bit tight. In my excitement, and rush to get "a kit", I nearly pulled the trigger on both an Ion Drum Rocker ($260) and an Alesis DM-6 ($400), which is basically the same thing as the Ion with an additional cymbal. I recently had a chance to play a DM-6 and man I'm glad I waited. You have no chance of upgrading that kit to anything decent with that module. There are no internal trigger parameters so forget DIYing some better pads later. I finally settled on an Alesis DM-8 USB kit, which cost me $540. It was a really good kit for the money, a purchase I'll never regret. It had a plenty of adjustable parameters as well as 100 included kits and room for 100 more. I was able to create mesh head, reflection plate style, pads that worked perfectly. My point is, when you're dealing with a company whose flagship model is mid-range at best, avoid the temptation to get a budget kit. Saving a little more money and buying your second kit first, is almost always good advice.

        those videos on Alesis' website make sure to not do any kind of rolls... only single hit triggering. Good thing I guess.... wouldn't want to hear what they do when hitting the same pad repeatedly...

        I'm sure those kits will appeal to someone (for Alesis' sake) with the added LED strike pads... but for a drummer looking for an e-kit... hmmm

        Sorry for being blunt, but I think kits like that belong to Toys'R' us (does that chain still exists?)

          Yep! It does over here... - They are selling Squier 'Bullet Series' Strats, the cheapest of Yamahas' PSR-range keyboards, and lots of crapola with names like 'Bontempi' and 'Casio'.
