I bought the Prodigy set with the Alesis DM5 module. After using it for only a month, two of the pads developed the same problem. The nuts on the bottom plate that hold the tension rods popped through the plate, which meant I couln't tighten the heads. I called Hart Dynamics and left 2 voicemails and entered a trouble ticket on their website and it is now 3 weeks and haven't heard a word from them. They indicate 24/7 technical support, but it is nonexistent. I've returned my kit and I am awaiting its replacement. As for the kit itself, I do like it and hope my first experience was a fluke. I don't care for the rubber hi-hat and pedal, and have replaced that with a Pearl stand and 14" A series Zildjian hi-hats. I have had to tweak the settings on the Alesis module to get rid of false triggering. The cymbals work ok for crashes, but not as rides. So, I bought a 20" A series Zildjian ride. The real cymbals work well with the Prodigy set and I would recommend going that route for live gigs. Overall I really like the Prodigy feel, sound, and rack system. It's a great entry level set for the price, but because of my experience I can't rate the quality that high.

I've had mine for only a few weeks and as much as I was looking forward to their arrival; I almost sent them back. False triggering was a real issue and then once I got past the false triggering I found they wouldn't trigger. I'm still dialing them in and they are close... but I suspect once I move them from the carpet to a different floor I may be starting over. After playing accoustics for nearly 40 years I prefer the mesh heads to the rubber, but the smaller-than-accoustic diameter rims are causing more dropped sticks in 3 weeks than the past 3 years... If you're used to accoustics be prepared for the tiny targets. For me, the horizontal mounting pipe for the high hat is also too short... I need about 3 more inches to the rear (also contributing to my dropped sticks). Decent sound, good action and the bass head is large enough for my DW7000 double peddles (double-triggering was a problem here, but that too can be adjusted). I bought these so I wouldn't have to constantly lug around my Pearls, but I think they'll end up as more of a practice set than a gig set. I will keep them, they're okay, just not great.

Don't waste your money

By matt-PyGx-

from baltimore

I own this kit,and let me tell you there are much better electric kits out there for around this price range. First of all, the mesh pads are too small to actually get a good drumming session in while you are rocking out. Also when you wear through the mesh heads on this set, they are almost impossible to find and costs alot, its almost cheaper to buy a whole new set. The crosstalk on the pads are really bad also and since you cant save any settings when you finally do get it set how you want it you have to go through the process all over again. I bought this just to practice on because I live in the middle of the city and wanted to save money by not getting a practice space, I feel that I could have deffinately purchased a better electric set though. Listen to me and spend a little more for something with rubber pads that wont wear through you'll be alot happier.

Lets be realistic

Face it these are not Roland, if you wanted/could afford Roland that?s what you?d get. They are the industry leader with mesh head electronic kits. I bought the kit for a couple of reasons, wanted a PRACTICE kit for when the kids are asleep, wanted the triggers to supplement my acoustic kit and it was on sale. So with that said I purchased them with reality in mind, I?m not going to get an e-kit that I can gig with for this price. When considering purchasing this kit if you are planning on gigging with it consider buy an inexpensive acoustic kit and damper it down if you don?t want the volume. But if you simply want to practice or possibly rehearse with this kit it?s perfect. Not to mention it?s a good start, if you want to replace the mesh heads with better quality you can do that one at a time.

Bang For Your Buck

By evilbean42

from pt jeff sta, NY

What a deal. I got this set when i moved into an apartment and needed a space saving, quiet alternative to my acoustic kit. I've had this kit for over a year now and its been nothing but a pleasure. Its a bit tough to get the module adjusted right, laying without cross talk between pads, but once you get it, its amazing. The mesh heads have awesome feel, and the sounds have to be heard to be belived. It even has a setting that mimics a real kit by choosing at random between a few nearly identical sounds for each pad. This way you get the illusion of a real kits changing overtones as you hit different spots on the head. I recorded a few songs with it and nobody ever noticed it was an electronic kit.

E-drums cant plug and play

Let me start off by saying that I don't own this kit. I use a custom made trigger setup that I did for myself which is a little better than these small pads.I have however used a Alesis DM5 and Roland modules and here is what you have to expect from e-drums.You can not just plug in and play...well you can but wont get the most out of your kit.Take the time and read the manual well then go though all the settings and setup so the pads are triggering as best as they can.Sure it's easier to set up an acoustic set but you only get one sound out of one tom or snare. This has loads of kits.The triggers in this set are good I'm going to guess and so if you really want some great sounds and kits I suggest everyone swap out the DM5 for a Roland TD series module, (Like a TD3, TD6, TD8, or even TD12 if you have the money) as the DM5 has given me trouble in the past with not triggering all the time and didn't like solid drum rolls.Also, if you get a TD6V module from Roland be sure to look into the vexpression kits online for download as they really add some great sounds and triggering to your module.

Learn with an accoustic

By Toad636

from Detroit ,MI

Look this thing is okay for some kids to bang around on, if they don't really care about learning. But if you really want to learn how to play, you just can't on this kit. The hi hat trigger just doesn't work properly, the cymbals have no feel, and it can't pick up rolls proprely. This thing takes 10 times longer to tune the bugs out than it takes to properly tune an accoustic kit. You get what you pay for, and like I said it's a sweet TOY. I sent mine back after 4 weeks, and used the money towards a good pearl accoustic kit.

The Best Entry Level Electric Drums

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

These are easily the best electric drums in this price range. The pads have a realistic feel and are comfortable to play on. There are a lot of plastic pieces but I've had mine for three years and NOTHING has broken. The DM5 is a pretty good little module. With proper tuning and mixing, the sound is excellent. I've recorded a number of things with them and nobody has asked if I used a machine. I've also played live through them and they sounded great without the headache setting up drum mics (although you need a good P.A. with a subwoofer). I have never regretted this purchase and neither will you.

Don't Do It

By Livid

from Staten Is. N.Y.

I have been a drummer for forty years and have played with many bands. I have also done studio work for top name studios. My experience is quite extensive and in my experience I have never seen such a cheap piece of junk. I am extremely angry that my money was wasted on something so inferior. I thought I could trust a name, I thought wrong!My Recomendation: Don't Even Think About Buying The Hart Dynamics Prodigy Pad Set With Roland TD - 3 Sound Module!!!

You get what you pay for.

By Allen-kUFKP

from Panama City, Fl

I have had this set for a year now w/ the Roland TD-3 Module. I use it at home for my own enjoyment. I love the mesh heads verses rubber heads. You can tighten them just like an acoustic set. Yes, the main drum components are a type of plastic, but it's not a high end set. As one other guy said I had an issue with the bass and crash cymbal canceling each other out but have adjusted settings to pretty much take care of that. If you get it go ahead and upgrade the cymbals or at least one to have choaking capability or just order an extra one, there is the room in the TD-3 Module to add a 3rd cymbal. (I just did) Overall, I have certainly got my money's worth in the last year from the enjoyment I have had with it. I bought a small PA System to hook it up to so my wife could enjoy it as well. Remember, you get what you pay for. It is one of Hart's low end set's, but worth the money in my opinion.

Might as well throw it away!

By Chronbits420

from Rathdrum, ID

This set looks nice in the picture but is not a good quality set at all. The toms dont respond to drum rolls, and other drums and cymbals are often set off with a bass drum kick. This thing literally falls apart when you play it. Definitely not a good set for experienced drummers!
