Delightful way of expanding my kit!
24.05.2016
One of the coolest and most versatile pieces of equipment I've ever bought!

Adding this to my live set up has really opened up my creativity on the kit. Creating a hybrid kit of acoustic and electric sounds fused together genuinely enhanced any style of music I was playing from hip hop and R n B to pop and so on.

The feel of the pads is amazing. Great rebound for intricate playing and moving from pads to the kit or playing both simultaneously feels completely natural as well.

Lots of options with editing and mixing too, once you get used to it and learn what sounds you like it's a true asset to any drummers set up in my opinion.

Superb gadget.
Aga, 10.01.2014
An outstanding electronic drum kit no less from Roland. The product is light and very happy that I've purchased the ver 2.0 that comes with 99 drum kits model so plenty to choose from there. Another arsenal of this little beast that impressed me most is the new Phrase Loop function that will surely excite every drummer in my own opinion. Done a mini test with just randomly playing using Phrase loop function and can't believe how easy it is from playing and switching off the pads you played. Overall, it is a handy kit that will save you a lot of time from setting up and space.

Die Percussionsounds sind OK, die „sogenannten“ Drumsounds eher unbrauchbar. Es finden sich eine Unmenge an Samples, von denen man die meisten allerdings niemals brauchen wird. Dafür fehlen so wichtige Dinge wie z.B. ein Satz Octobans.

Das Display ist für ein so aktuelles Gerät eher schlecht. Zwar groß, aber mit geringer Auflösung. Es ist kontrastarm und aus leicht seitlicher Sicht kann man schon nichts mehr erkennen.

Das gesamte Gerät einschließlich Chassis ist aus Plastik. Schaun wir mal wie lange es hält.

Das Bedienkonzept ist ganz gut gelöst, abgesehen von der Phrase-Looper-Funktion. Letztere entbehrt jeglicher Logik und ohne Handbuch geht da gar nichts. Im Live-Einsatz würde ich mir den Stress nicht antun.

Der Kopfhörer-Ausgang ist für hochohmige Hörer viel zu schwach. Die Stromversorgung kommt über ein externes Netzteil mit dem bekannten, wackligen Ministecker. Das Stromkabel wirkt billig und unflexibel.

Aufgrund der vielen Unzulänglichkeiten halte ich den Preis für nicht angemessen. Mehr als 400,- Euro dürfte so ein Gerät eigentlich nicht kosten. Das hat wohl damit zu tun, dass es kein vergleichbares Konkurrenzprodukt gibt.
