I use this kit for practice to keep in shape and also for playing the small clubs. This kit has great sound adjustment and connects to a Vdrum Tutor program for lessons and practice. This kit folds up and fits into the option case made for this kit for good protection and easy carrying. Everything fits into the case including both pedals. The only piece that does not fit into the case is the drum throne. You will carry two cases into your gig and that's it!! One of the best portable electronic drum kits on the market. The sound quality is the best along with pad dynamics. I would recommend this kit to anyone who wants a portable kit for small gigs and practice.
