Got it yesterday! Can't wait for it to arrive in 2.5 weeks!
Thanks for the feedback all. I think I'll take a punt soon, it sounds like they'd do until I'm in a position to get an acoustic set. Cheers.
I had one of these for a few years. It was just about OK, but slowly by slowly some of the inputs started failing. It was also frustrating not being able to play on the rim of the snare, or to gradually open and close the hi-hat while playing. Oh and you can always hear the thud of stick on plastic in the background, which isn't the most satisfying of experiences. If you have no other choice then it's fine, but I now have a cheap acoustic kit and it's a completely different experience.
My drum teacher suggested getting some furniture risers, I just haven't got around to buying them yet.
Whoops I'm 6ft7 will see how this goes when they arrive today
