      been using my e drums live for over 10years live. TD20 and now TD50x. was told once by a fellow musician they thought a cd was being played but our band just started our set. TSO has used Vdrums for years and they sound great with the big PA systems. they do use acoustic cymbals. in a smaller club, Vdrums are great for volume control

        For the 90's fans here, Garbage (Butch Vig) has been using edrums live for years.

            We're only a "basement band" so this probably is quite irrelevant to most of you but I wish that was the case with me - not quite. There are usually only three of us so I'm sure that makes a difference but our lead/guitar guy wants major volume (rock the pictures off the walls). Because of household issues we/I have to play through headphones - he hates it. Oh well it's what we deal with - at least for now.

              Ah man, we went to headphones and in-ears and personalized monitor mixes with the little Behringer gadgets (P16Ms) connected to our x18 mixer. Now when we rehearse the only person actually listening through the PA is the bass player and he doesn't want it loud Those little things have been game changers not just for us, but for everyone in the house. Now even the dogs don't go crazy!

                  Re pro or semi pro drummers, bands or whatever,

                  Pro or Professional means that you earn your living doing it, though as far as music is concerned, that could be doing sessions, gigging or teaching.
                  (or, as usual, a mixture of these)

                  Semi-Pro or Semi-Professional means that you make money from doing it but it isn't your main source of income.

                  Well that's always been my understanding of it

                    I don't know if this counts but Def Leppard drummer, Rick Allen, has to use an electronic drum kit because he lost his left arm in a car crash and he uses his left foot for the snare hit.

                      Geoff Tate's drummer has been using Rolands throughout this tour. I think its Daniel Laverde.

                      Some live samples:

                        I am seeing more and more function bands, club bands, pub bands etc. with e-kits - tend to be covers bands like mine the two big things are volume control and getting a sound that is "like the original recording" particularly bands that cover stuff from post 1980 (apart from indie and harder rock/ metal)

                          Yea the volume thing is a major benefit. For all the years I was gigging, my drumkit was fully damped. The only time the damping came off was for the larger, like university gigs.
