- Overall Opinion
- I bought this at the start of last week and I got it a few days later. Two large boxes with several small ones inside. Eagerly unpacked, and set about assembling it. The manual is not very clear and you have to look at the pictures several times to really understand how they fit inside one another. Basically I put in a good half hour.
With it all assembled, I turn it on, I tap, it works.
It looks nice I think, and the round cymbals (not wedges) contribute to its charm.
All pads are mono (cymbals included).
The sounds of the module are not terrible. I bought this drumkit to move home after a few years playing on an acoustic, so I seek acoustic sounds. I would not think of electronic sounds or whistles, which are more silly than realistic ones. It is true that for acoustic sounds, despite a fairly large selection of snare drum, toms and bass drums (cymbals and HiHat as very limited) it's hard to find a sound that suits me. You can set the pitch on a sound to change it a bit, but this doesn't fundamentally change them (if need be, it's useful to simulate a crash 18 with the sound of a 16).
I only had the opportunity to test one other electric drumkit, it was a yamaha dtexplorer, and the sounds do not convince me either, so maybe I'm picky ...
The midi output allows all the same presets so you could use a sampler on a computer with recorded sounds. To be tested.
It seems, all the same, that the pedal for the hihat has some problems on my model, because it happens to get an open hihat sound, when we step on the pedals.
I could put my Pearl double pedals on the kick pad, and it works reasonably. In fact, the sensor must be right at the center and since the mallets move, you must strike hard to extend the kick in the headphone. But nonetheless it works.
The velocity is well managed too, but no multi-sampling, so for ghost notes, it doesn't sound very good!
In conclusion I would say that, like triptonyo, it's really good value.
Also I think one should be able to improve it as time goes on for not too much money. I will edit my view as time goes on.N / AN / AN / A

- Thomann.de purchased, installed in just over an hour! Careful Packing. Price: only 500 euros.
I wanted a drumkit that hasn't the "white" pads of poor quality found on the mps-100 and mps-300 models.
The structure is rigid but the plastic screws do not look very strong ... careful not to force them by tightening! The module sounds really cheap ...
2o preset kits, 10 customizable kits, 215 voices.
Good surprise: the pads are of good quality, respond well to the hit and bounce right, and this is mainly for training in an apartment. The sound intensity is consistent with the strike, but I have not yet tested in MIDI.
There are few models at this price. Either you look for something cheaper and it's really the low end, or you have to go for the Yamaha DTXPLORER for 700-800 euros.
After testing both, the module is definitely better quality in the Yamaha but the pads are the same.
Excellent value, good compromise between the millennium mps-100 and Yamaha DTXPLORER with pads of the same standard for 200 to 300 euros less!N / AN / AN / A
