The only review you'll need
Flubberwups 02.12.2021
The Millenium MPS-850 is a beautiful compromise for people who really want a Roland TD17 but just don't have the money. Millenium might not be the biggest brand, this drum set surely speaks for itself. I've had it for a year now and will tell you about my experience.

- Kit -
The kit itself is simply gorgeous. I love how it does not look flashy but is still stylish. Furthermore, the responsiveness of the kit is good (not perfect, but what can you expect for this money). Mesh is a must and thankfully this kit is fully mesh. Lastly, I found the standing Hi-hat to be a must. I play regularly on acoustic kits and this helps for transition in between kits.

There are a few cons regarding the responsiveness:
- The cymbals are somewhat clumsy in their trigger curves. It takes experience and knowing the kit to maintain a smooth volume during a cymbal roll. I recommend downloading the manual and checking out the curves you can adjust for this matter.
- The hi-hat is not the best-built there is. First of all, my hi-hat control on/off switch broke off about five weeks in. Secondly, the hi-hat sometimes forgets you're playing closed which is somewhat annoying.
- The spring of my kick drum started squeaking a bit after two months of playing. This can be resolved by oiling it.
- Once in a while, hitting the hi-hat, drum and snare at the same time triggers the play-button for the play-along songs. I'll be in the middle of a drum solo and suddenly a backing track comes in. This is the most annoying feature but can be resolved by turning the volume to 0.

- Durability -
I play in a setting where I need to be able to set up my kit in as short a time as possible. I've taken the whole kit apart and put it together about 15 times now, and I can safely say that the kit does not show any sign of wear and tear. What's more, I can now manage to do this in less than 15 minutes which to me is remarkable. Some easy cable management allows you to be very quick. Tip: buy the gig bag with it.

- MIDI trigger -
I play with Addictive Drums 2 and Steven slate. Both works just fine with this drum and I have no trouble whatsoever.

- Drum sounds -
I find the drum sounds themselves to be quite bad, frankly. That's not to say I would find them better in a Roland TD 17 (I generally hate built-in kits I know I'm weird), but still. It helps that you can pitch and adjust all sounds to your liking but especially the more alternative genres sound incredibly unrealistic.
You can download samples onto your module but don't expect good results as the module can only hold about 15 samples. This means you can never sample your whole kit.

Nevertheless, the sound is good enough for practice and I'm enjoying the kit so far. Also: no wear & tear whatsoever.

- Conclusion -
Buy it.

Good pads and HW - poor sound
ToWu 01.11.2022
I am a beginner and have no real experience of drum kits nether acoustic nor e-drums. I am HiFi interested and that bias my review.
Good:
Pads are very nice to play on. Cymbals also, however not that responsive for different kind of strikes, but I guess they are OK for the price. I am disappointed with the sound. It is poor and I think the module should be updated. I always use EZdrummer via the MIDI interface for the better sound, and then it is a great kit for the price, however it is a bit of a hazzle to always connect the PC etc. and you have to add an extra 150euro for HW and SW. I also miss Bluetooth.
The were problems with the Hi-Hat, but Thomann have been good on handling it.

Really good for the price
Enge 03.04.2022
You get mesh heads, six drums, a "real" hihat and three cymbals for a low, low price. That is all you need to know actually. The set up was easy. The built in sounds is not good. OK for practice, but not more. I connect the kit to my DAW and use the Steven Slate samples. Then you have fantastic sounds and it is suddenly a thousand times more inspirational.
The drums seem quite solid, but must not be bashed. If you let your kids go ape on this, like my youngest, the drums will easily flip out of position and end up in crappy angles. Easy to adjust, but annoying.

Still...Happy with the kit and would recommend to any starter (who can´t buy acoustic witch should always be first choice) or seasoned drummers wanting a low cost, low volume home practice kit.

Awesome Kit
Rick S 28.09.2022
Awesome drum kit, easy to set up and very nice and smooth to play.
Personally, I prefer mashheads over pads, and this kit proves me again why.
It also is really easy to connect with monitors and producing software.
Love it!

Good kit for lower budjet
Tony_80 23.03.2022
I'm pretty satisfied to this kit as it comes with "real" Hi-Hat and it comes with 4 tomtoms and these was my requirements what i wanted from the kit. I used to play with really old Yamaha DTXplorers and this was huge upgrade for me to get this kit.

Playability is quite close to real ones but still feels a bit different to play in general. All tho when playing longer periods mesh screws might get loosen a bit time to time by vibration.

Sounds of the module are not the best ones but have managed to find some sort of good sound settings by playing with the different settings etc. There is plenty of different sounds to play with and this is really good option to have.

Quality of pads and all other things is good, but with the 10" pads i have been countered issues couple of times. Wiring is too thin and gets snapped broken too easily by the resonance. Usually it gets cut right after the shouldering and edge of that clue. This is only thing what i have found so far and call it like a flaw of the design. Cymbals are good in general. One of my crashes don't register hits time to time but works otherwise good. Ride's bell you need to hit pretty hard to get it triggered. Otherwise all rest of the parts are good and solid pieces.

In general i can recommend this kit to others without any hesitation. Especially if you have lower budget. Also its really good kit for the beginners as it comes with so many pads and cymbals.

Mesh heads and hihat stand
Stipe86 21.01.2022
Pros: mesh heads, hi-hat stand, kick drum, price

Cons: Built in sounds are not the best. I mostly use it with vst. Kick drum is nice, but I had to lower the beater below center, closer to piezo. If not, I had to really bang the drum (excuse the pun). Included drum pedal is pure trash but expected.

Conclusion: You won't find a better package with a hi-hat stand at this price point. Would buy again.

Journey to the world of edrums
MLA 28.07.2022
After a long period away from a drum kit (almost 10 years), it was time to revive that old passion. Never used an edrum set before and i have to say that I'm quite happy that I bought this one. It as all the elements that i was used to have, but it needs learning. It feels responsive enough to practice exercises, it doesn't feel sterile (that was my biggest concern), i can jam and have fun. The set looks sturdy enough to abuse, but it does wabble a bit. The hi-hat needs using to, there is a sweet spot that needs tuning. But, in essence, and not having any other experience to compare it to, it's a very good set, that hopefully will help me improve my groove.

Excellent rapport qualité/prix
skatoux 31.03.2022
Vous avez bien plus que ce que vous ne payez.
C'est ce qu'il faut retenir de cette Millenium MPS-850. La qualité de fabrication est au rendez-vous (même si nous avons l'habitude en tant que musicien, la marque Millenium et ses problèmes, mon kick ne fonctionne pas! J'ai du contacter le support pour avoir de l'aide). Vous avez 4 toms et une snare, c'est rare pour cette gamme de prix, c'est aussi cela qui m'a fait prendre cette batterie.

Le son direct de la batterie n'est pas mauvais, mais il est loin d'être excellent (pourtant j'ai un bon casque). Mais ce problème est vite réglé lorsqu'on branche la batterie a un ordinateur, temps de réponse en midi parfait, très peu voir aucune latence, avec les logiciels comme ezdrummer ou autre, ca marche niquel ! Préparez cela dit un casque avec un cable JACK si vous voulez jouer avec le son de base de la batterie, il n'y a pas de port mini-jack.

Je suis assez content de mon achat, malgré le petit problème avec le KICK. La livraison Thomann toujours au top, rien à dire, quelques jours et c'était chez moi!

Works fine, probably the best for the price
edgardrop 09.12.2021
The sound is ok. Easy to mount. The feeling is good.
Although, the hi-hats doesn't work very good. It's not the real feeling, specially when you play closed and then open, it doesn't work well.
I guess you pay for what you have.

Overall decent.
drummerboy1980 19.04.2022
This is a great quality kit for its price. The only objection I have is the bass drum mesh head. On day 1 of playing this the bass drum beater was already cutting through the mesh drum head, therefore I have to keep patching it up with external tape/bass drum beater pads. You might get away with tearing the bass drum head if you arent a hard hitter but if you are Id recommend the Allesis Nitro electronic kit instead. Its slightly cheaper and can take punishment with no damage.
