I love the idea of electronic drums...100+ different kits at your disposal at the push of a button, no huge shells to lug around, they take less space when they're set up, you can have band practice at low volume, no more cymbal crashes at ear level, MIDI, and NO MORE MIKING HASSLES !!! I've tried out several different brands at music stores, but I don't really see many major differences. Some have more kit presets available, but I wouldn't use them all anyway. Some have a few more pads, but more than your standard 5-piece kit arrangement is overkill with my lack-luster drumming. I tried the Rolands that are supposed to be similar to an acoustic drum feel, but they seemed very unnatural to me, and they give off a loud enough acoustic sound to be intrusive and downright annoying. The set that I found that came closest to my needs was a Yamaha that was only $1000. The drawbacks were that half of the kit presets were totally unusable to me, the hardware was sorta ginchy, and the actual sampled sounds didn't seem to be of the greatest quality. Given my scenario, can anyone recommend an electronic kit that would best suit my needs?
