Default what's your clue to choose an e-drum kit?

I've been thinking and searching for an edrum kit, but cheap ones do not sound good, good sound kits are expensive....I totally lost...

Now, I gave myself a clue: Sound--Trigger---Hand-feel--apperance---other funcs---brand.

What's your clue if you are going to get an edrum kit?

What is your budget? The Roland TD(#)KX kits are pretty good, im currently using a Roland TD9KX which was 1500 brand new, you could get a TD4KX for around 850 - 999. You could also try searching Ebay, Gumtree or Craiglist. I saw a Roland TD20KX on Craiglist for around 1200 which is amazing considering its about 5000 brand new!

If you want to go cheaper, ive never seen or tried one but ive heard for starting out a Session Pro DD505 is a nice e-kit and its only around 300.

I dont think the company that makes them is called "Session Pro" i think thats just the name of the drum model, but Andertons sells it which is a reliable place to buy from - http://www.andertons.co.uk/electroni...c-drum-kit.asp

In my opinion, the sound is last, it is based on what ever speaker it is comes out of, big amp, or high quality will change the sound. I would make feel the number on criteria. Most are either mesh heads or solid rubber like a pad. Seems like mesh has a more real feel although I have not seen the heads on the new Pearl Epro.

Best of luck

Buy used, but not well used.
I also managed to get a considerable discount because I bought from my brother (1500 down to 900).
