The kit is in my hands for more than 3 years. I can`t complain. Nothing terrible happened. Hardware is OK, but from time to time I have to adjust and tighten things. The snare arm will probably fall off after some time of heavy-hitting.
But it`s easy to fix. When I became a more serious drummer I bought a better drum throne, headphones (good ones, because Nitro produces very low volume), and a better kick pedal. The brain is limited but there are options (if you hook it up to PC f.example). Some guys use a VST for more pleasing sounds, but I`m still playing with the built-in effects - they are OK. They don`t take much space and the mesh heads are quiet, which is essential if you have cranky neighbors as I do. Mesh heads also make you feel like playing on a real kit. For 400 bucks, a definite pick-up.
Module samples aren`t the best but in every way adequate for a beginner. It is small enough and I even sometimes bring it with me to practice everywhere. On the other side the small pads make small targets so maybe could impact someone to become a tighter drummer.
I tried, but there is no way double kick pedals could fit on the kickstand, you should forget about that if you choose Nitro. Don`t forget to tune your mesh head and break the sensor underneath. You couldn`t repair it, you will need to buy a new one - don`t ask me how I know it. Maybe the most annoying thing is hi-hat controls.
The kit produces decent sound and it`s sufficient for a beginner. Or, let`s say, great investment for a beginner. So if beginner, consider buying this one for start. Then, after years of practice upgrade or choose a better one.
