Default Affordable and good electronic drums?

Hey there!
I have about $1500 to spend on a set of electronic drums.
I'm a total begginer and I played acoustic drums before.

So what am I looking for?
Well, I want to play in a band, on stage, with acoustic drums, so I need the transition between the electronic drums and the acoustic ones to be as smooth as possible (as much resemblence as possible).
Obviously, I want it to sound "right", as natural as possible.
Oh.. and a double pedal :D but if the set doesn't have one there's no problem if I can add one to it later.

So... whacha' say?

There ya go :)

If you end up saving another 800-900 i would MASSIVELY suggest also buying the 2box drumit 5 sound module for it eventually.

I'm gonna piggy-back this thread to ask what mesh head electronic kits drummers out there would recommend for around the same money ($1500). Unlike the OP this would be mainly for practise purposes. I have an acoustic kit already and I'm looking for the silent benefits of electronic kits. Also mesh heads I find a bit more fun too. I'm not looking for the best, just something more playable than that cheapo Millenium electronic kit I had years ago. It was like hitting furniture.

Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks.

I have the version of this with mesh snare and rubber toms and its great for practice but with the discounts and rebates I paid only 600, no pedal or throne though.

I would not have a problem with Yamaha e-kits either.

Thanks.

So is the general consensus that Roland, Yamaha and Alesis are all pretty much value for money or are there any you would stay away from?

Go to Craig's List and you can get all three for $1500.

I picked up a Roland TD6 for $375, a Yamaha DTXIII with a double pedal for $400 and a Hart/Alesis (mesh) for $140 (the Alesis control module didn't work but it just had the wrong power supply :) )

I prefer the Rolands so far and, I haven't given it a chance but, I'm not diggin the mesh heads on the Hart set. I'm trying to find a way to change them out. Too spongey.

I think 'affordable' and 'good' would be an oxymoron in the electronic drumset realm ;)
You'd probably be better off buying yourself a nice PA for the acoustic drums you do have, considering you're buying this to play with a band onstage anyway. Why not just make your acoustic drums sound good and be able to compete with your amplified band mates?

I wasn't really planning on gigging with them. Just for practise. Maybe that was directed at the OP.

Thanks all
