NikoMcbrain's review"Good as a first drum kit"

Millenium MPS-100
This was the first drum kit I bought, it seems simple and the price is affordable! I can confirm that it is easy to use, it takes 15-20min to set it up and the module is very easy to use.
The type of drum sounds on the module are nice, it is very easy to use (manage sounds, etc.).
So, its main strengths are the price, the toms, the cymbals, and, especially, the bass drum pedal, which is very responsive, but be careful with the snare drum because some spots don't sound at all, it's very annoying!
Nevertheless, the sound is not the best, it has a reverb, that is impossible to get rid of and it's very annoying! The sound hasn't much attack, due to the reverb, and you really need an excellent audio output for it to be convincing, because it's the audio output that will give your drums a good sound or not. (Despite that, the reverb is unbearable.)

All in all, this drum kit is not bad, for a beginner, it's even very good. You just need to foresee changing the module fast because the one that comes with it is tiring (although that depends on how much you play it). You can always make a drum kit evolve, though, and if you are just starting out, it's more than enough. But if you have the money to buy something more high-end, don't hesitate!!
If you are an experienced drummer and this is your first ELECTRONIC drum set, look somewhere else or you'll be disappointed.

PS: The cans that come with it are of good quality and are more than enough for this kit.


Broadly speaking:

Positive:
Price
Sturdiness
Ease of use
Different sounds

Negative:
It's impossible to remove the reverb
Limited module
The hi-hats (sensibility) and snare (muted spots) are frustrating

Millenium MPS-100
After a month of use:

Negative
The sounds are of excellent quality headphones.
Charley the pads / cymbals are frustrating rather quickly (Sensitivity)
Charley's foot is quite difficult to control

In positive
Always the same: you can work for cheap.
I maintain that we must take it as an alternative to a dummy drumkit.
Lovers of good sound / recording needs, etc ... go your way.
Amateurs working independence, work snare, etc ... it's good.

******************* **************** Initial notice

- How long have you use it?

I ended up in the morning. The manual is in English and German, quite difficult to understand at first, but putting it is good.

- What is so special that you like most and least?

What I like most is
<ul>
Price
and therefore the possibility to try the "drumkit" without making too much noise and above all without breaking the bank, to buy more later, and knowing what I want. See the flaws of a drumkit electronic entry and to appreciate their value the best materials
the pads are not that bad (except cymables)
usability of the module
packaging :-)
</ul>
What I like least is
<ul>
quality cymbal pads and Charles (Charley?) (charlet?) low blows through the cracks, a very sensitive area in the middle (of 3 cm2). Only about 3 different volumes. There is no pb on the other pads
the quality of the reverb, not adjustable and very very dirty (especially through headphones and especially on the bass drum).
the sensitivity of the hi-hat pedal on its "closure", combined with single volume of this sound .... in "tremulous" foot slightly, it's kind of a rolling closure of Charley ... well, I exaggerate a bit, but you know what I mean ....
the balance of volumes "factory" (but there are memories to solve the pb) especially on closed hi-hat (too strong) and drum (too low)
</ul>
- Have you tried many other models before buying it?

no ... I just went to see the lowest price in Milonga, and I ordered the Millennium

- How would you rate the quality / price?

We must know why you buy this model.
Personally, it put me on drums and see if it does not rot in a corner past the first 2 weeks of enthusiasm. At worst my girls play with and I tap once in a while. If, despite the shortcomings, I continue, I'll go to qulité supéerieure. I never tried "to see" if the investment was about 800 Euros ... to 330 Euros, it is less a problem.

When I say put me on drums, is improve my perception of rhythm to improve myself on guitar / vocals, improve the independence arms legs, and able to troubleshoot OCCAZ to the drumkit without blushing

It is also a kind of silent improved drumkit ;-)

Anyone who thinks buying a roland / yamaha is wrong and will be disappointed.

- With experience, you do again this choice? ...

Yeah, since it is not trying to ruin me ...
