Session Pro DD505 Electronic Drum Kit - Great Value
The Session Pro DD505 electronic drum kit is a bit of a breakthrough. Electronic drums are such a great way of playing drums without making much noise, but until recently, starting prices have been too high! For people just learning to play, e-kits are quite a lot more money than just buying an entry level acoustic drum kit. With even the cheap-and-nasty electronic kits coming in at twice the price of some acoustic kits, there was quite a difference if you wanted to enjoy the benefits of an electric kit. However, with the Session Pro DD505, you can strike the perfect balance between price and real playability.
The Session Pro DD505 is the first electronic drum kit that we've seen for under 400 pounds that we could actually recommend to drummers. The frame is sturdy, the pads feel pretty realistic & are very robust. The brain (sound module) is pretty basic, but the kit sounds are OK, & you can plug you iPod (or similar) into it & then jam along to all your favourite tracks via headphones. The brain also has a midi out feature, meaning this kit can be used to trigger the sounds in any other midi sound module or computer. The price is still a little bit more than buying a starter acoustic kit, but for anyone that has to live in the same house as a practicing drummer, we're sure you'll be glad you spent the extra money! Everything you need to get started is included except for a pair of headphones!
