    My nephew has a Roland V kit. Pretty bad ass. Electronic drums have come a long way since the old Simmons pads.

    Would you gig with them, or strictly for home use?

    Yessir. I was tinkering with those at Guitar Center. I haven't played in years cause I don't really have room for a full size kit and I don't wanna annoy everyone. Those are kinda pricey, but they seem like a perfect option.

    Just home use. If I start gigging again, I'll pick up a used acoustic set somewhere.

    Ya. Nephew says his V kit is more trouble than it's worth to gig with, but great for home use and not bothering the fam & neighbors.

    I lace into my acoustics on the daily. Fuck em.

    The color absolutely sucks but these are the best electronic drums made... Got my kit 1 year ago and absolutely love it...

    I've thought about sticking with the acoustics but it doesn't seem worth the trouble. Most of my available playing time will likely be later at night so these will be much more acceptable. I did read about the difficulties trying to run them through the PA.
