Just be careful to choose one that is best suited to your needs - Tolgalpala paints a rosy picture, but the fact is they do present noise problems, especially to those living below you in an apartment, or those in next door rooms, and if you only play on an ekit, you soon get out of shape on the acoustic. Any drum teacher will tell you the same. Stick response is a bitch.
i am not suggesting they do not present any sort of noise but compared to an acoustic set (an the impossibility of using them to practice at night even if you have a sound isolated/insulated room) they are almost noiseless. there is for sure a great deal of tapping sound as if working on a practice pad. kick pad naturally makes the most noise of all. for the ones living below, some conventional measures would work fine such as a folded and thick carpet (or foam plates under that) put under the set. it is basically not a difficulty that you couldn't overcome.
i have to agree with you; about stick response being a bitch but yet again i am not suggesting to work with it all the time. acoustic sets are the real deal that is for sure. this could only present an alternative.it is not much different than practicing rudiments on a practice pad for hours. (for sure much more fun.) then you adjust yourself when you get behind an acoustic set. and i sincerely think that you do not get out of shape soon. not to start another discussion i do not agree with that. it's simply depending on the way of usage and understanding of e drums.
