Re: Met a guy who really likes his E kit
The best part about my e-drums is the ability to tune them how I want to, without having to pull out the drum keys and start fiddling. I think the DIY-mentality being thrown away with electronic drums is misguided and a little ignorant, but to each their own.
If one really gets deep into their capability, it's quite a bit of information and learning necessary (the opposite of turn-key, push of a button operation), but out of the box it's totally newbie friendly, too. Another added benefit as it appeals to a broad range of drummers and musicians, from people who just want to sit down and play, to those who want to fine-tune nearly every conceivable aspect.
