The TD-12KX is worth checking out. It is not the most expensive one but it has some really good features.
Yeah that's a bit more than I want to spend heh. I really just want something to practice on and enter midi into ableton, etc. I don't want to play drumset in a band so I'll only buy an acoustic set again when I move from this place, or get one really cheap to store til I move. Also, I'm so close to a degree I've been thinking about going back sometime now that my business is more established and I will still need to be able to play drumset. Marimba and vibraphone are going to be another story.
What do you guys think the minimum electronic kit I should look at considering I really just want something to practice on that is realistic feeling and reliable with midi entry if I use it for percussion tracks. I think I remember reading a bit on this a few years ago and some kits didn't catch all the ghost notes, etc. a lot of the time. I can't really remember if that was just the installed sounds or the midi though. Technology may have improved since then as well.
