Hi this is my review , i ll try to share my opinion to help someone in the future when considering this product.
Very fast, my background : I m a previous Millenium user of the MPS-100 Rubber pad kit , which i bought 15 years ago.It was also the entry kit at the time at a pricetag of 300 Euro if i m correct.
Now into the MPS-150X mesh kit.
1)Very Very Quiet . Coming from rubber pads i couldn t believe how quiet the mesh heads are.
2)Compatibility with previous set , hardware wise as well as the module ( i combined both of them for a bigger set)
1) Kit is very small , much smaller than my previous entry set.(regarding the horizontal bar distance and what you can fit in there. Also lacks the lower horizontal bar for support.
2) Module is far worse again compared to the previous one that i had , comparing entry product for entry product.
3) The Cables connecting pads+cymbals to the module are not equal in length and are not anymore a jack to jack cable.Meaning that if i can't take the cable from a pad and use it to connect my guitar to an amplifier for example. (like my previous kit was).
Furthermore this may cause you problems with the set up depending on how far you want something from the module.
4) The module sounds are atrocious in sample quality and very few.
This is a problem easily fixed if you connect your drumkit to a pc via usbA to usb(the cable is not included , its very cheap to get though)
5)All drumheads are monozone sound , no rimshots. Crash and ride have choke , but sometimes it's tricky to activate , maybe i need more practice on that. I expected at least a dual zone snare drum 10'' while toms can be 1 zone 8'' a feature that is found on the next tier on the 450 Kit.
6)The triggers are low quality regarding the speed of the hits.So above a certain bpm , module can't easily recognise the input.
Something that you would expect from an entry kit, but i'm just saying so you have an idea of what you are buying.
All in All , a kit for absolute beginners with 0 expectations , if you dont have a problem with noise go for the rubber kit ! if you care for the noise, the mesh heads are exceptional , what i'm only afraid about them , is the durability and the life span they will have , as i m writing this on the 2nd day of setting the drum kit up.
Also if you are buying this for your kid , especially with heavy metal influences , expect an E-kit to not withstand many years of abuse from heavy beating.
A basic kit , VERY quiet!
Right now seems to be a good option for the entry category, (not having tried the competition of course), BUT quality for the pricetag has fallen so so much through the years, let alone the 20% extra price from inflation.
