This is a great little set, and it is very portable. It isn't perfect however. The pad arrangement doesn't reflect that of a full-size drum kit, which is tricky and confusing. There lots of different drum kit sounds, but a lot of them sound very similar, and I didn't find a really good snare drum sound in any of them. The foot pedals are very sensitive and I simply can't get used to them after using a real kit. The unit has a usb connector so you can connect it to a pc or laptop and with the right software and samples I suppose you could get over the limitations of the samples in the unit itself. Despite these minor issues it's still a very good drum set and very good value for money ?
