I tried to wait for the end of Covid before purchasing a new e-kit, to sample kits in-person and such before sinking this kind of money into one, but ended up deciding with so much time at home I needed a better set while I had time to write and record. This thing is awesome. I am surprised I have had no regrets or concerns so far. The drum heads are much more responsive than my previous e-kit, the real kick pedal is really nice, high-hat controls legit, and the customizatizability of the EQ levels and such from the monitor allow the kit to be used a million different ways. The only criticism I have is that it was a bit confusing to put together. It comes with a ton of smaller boxes which were all unlabeled and the parts aren't labeled either. I think some stickers naming each piece would make it easier to assemble, though I still was able to figure it out. Great product, I am a fan of Alesis now.
