I have played many electronic drum sets, and personally, I like Alesis about the best. The DM10 Studio kit has sturdy construction, the control module is fairly simple to use (with a little practice), and it has a lot of great features... all at a very reasonable price. I like that all of the drum pads are dual zone pads, and you have complete freedom to arrange and position all of the parts as you please. Contrary to what the prices tell you, I also like the rubberized cymbal pads a LOT more than the more expensive alloy cymbals. The rubber ones get a ton less cross-talk, especially between the zones of each cymbal. In a quieter setting, like a church, the strike of a stick on the alloys is also so loud that you can hear it over the cymbal sound in many cases. The kick drum pad is plenty large enough to accommodate a double beater, which is a feature that pointed me to this kit in the beginning. And, with over 1,000 sounds available, you have quite a range of stuff to select from in making your own (100 available) virtual kits. Cons? About the only things that disappoint me a little bit are the lack of steel drums in the sounds (there are some good reggae sounds, but no steels... seems like there should be at least some) and I can't seem to get the snare pad to be as rigidly mounted as I would like. But, I am a heavy hitter, so take that for what it's worth. Overall, I would absolutely recommend this product.
