steps, of drumming, in Nov of 2018, so no comparison.
After a little bit of research, I've considered this the best starter kit for me( being a beginner) and best price/value.
I've considered the Midi USB interface as a must(for later recording purpose), althought didn't tried yet.
- mesh heads are really quiet
- very compact and easily foldeable, an advantage if you live in a small flat
- good sounding drum samples, and recently discovered the sample tracks you can play along, or jam
- smart metronome, u may specify the accents on certain beats
- has auxiliary jack input
- has additional 2 instrument, so you can plug an additional crash, tom etc..
- cymbals are really loud and plastic layer looks pretty used after a few months
- rims shots are really unpleasant to the hear (alhough I play with headset)
- bass drum pad very loud -> I use a towel sometimes over it
- bass drum pad hardly can accomodate double pedals -> ok there is a way if you setup beaters very close to one another, but you always have to adjust, missing triggers
-> I bought a Roland KD10 pad address this, which is even louder :) but no more missing triggers, at least
- I cannot accomodate the hihat pedal, is kinda joke, very loud, moves, no real feel at all
- metronome click sound is not customizable
Overall good impression, quality product.
If I knew abot the annoying hihat pedal, and small bass drum, I would go with bit more expensive kit, e.g: Millenium MPS-850, which has a real hihat stand !
Advice: don't by with that Millenium drum throne and T-Bone headset.
After a few months both are broken.
Headset frame broken on sides.
Drum throne was too short for me(can reach mostly 90 degrees with muy legs), and after a while started to wobble badly( plastic inside the frame broke), so stopped using it.
