    Default Down To A Couple

    Considering getting an E-Kit for practice purposes only. Narrowed it down to a couple:

    Roland TD-07KV
    Alesis Command Mesh

    Price between the two is only about $200. I don't need a lot of bells and whistles since it will be used just for practice. Any insight would be appreciated.

    Did the same thing a few years ago and hated them. I made up my mind right there if I was to ever get another e-kit I would get bigger pads and a better brain. Problem with that is you gotta spend close to the acoustic equivalent of a 3pc Sonor Sq2. I really like the new Alesis Strike Pro SE... That is the one I would get. I got to play it at local shop here and was very impressed.

    Decide whether this is love for the craft or simply an ego thing

    I purchased a Simmons e-kit about a year ago. Very nice and was able to negotiate with an on line retailer and it was under 1K for everything you see.

    Nice, but way more than I want to spend for something that is just going to serve as a practice kit.

    Yeah that's what my plan was for my ekit and when I got it after about an hour I really did not even want to practice on it I hated it soo much but different strokes. Let us know how it goes.
