Nice kit to play on

By: Trevor on 12 September 2019
Do not be too concerned about the 4 Stars. I will write a fuller review soon. I ordered this kit as soon as it hit the store as. Fell in love with what it had to offer. The factory (not Artist) errored in not having the hi-hat assembly packed in the same box as the kit. So the hi-hat is stll on it's way. I can't comment on the qualiety of that just yet. But as far as the mesh pads go. Love them! so much like a real drum. They feel heap good to play on over rubber pads. I did notice the tuning key and adjusters on the snare and toms which allows for playing feels. They were all tentioned to suit small to large toms. All the pads trigger nicely too. The sound modual has extremely good sample. Has a very good live edit setup for both general effects and individual drum settings via the sliders. This would be ideal as a live kit for performing. There is a bit of cut-off in the trigger times with the cymbols though. There are fine settings for this in the module (which has some really good editing features). So it's probably just needing tweaking at present. Just didn't respond to fast repetition out of the box. Compared to the lesser priced Artist kit, which was suprisingl more responsive in the cymbols. The mesh kick shown in the sales image, is not what the manufacturer supplied. Artist are doing what they can to look at this for me atm. So I can't review this feature also. The kick supplied was similar to that on the XD750C. A substantial disapointment. But as I say, it's been seriously looked at by Artist with the manufacturer at this stage. All in all, it's is a really well made kit. Some initial teething issues with this new kit and it's supply. But as an overall honest look at what it does. So far, I am happy with the supplied components. Will review the hi-hat after it gets here and await the outcome on the mesh kick. They obviously have one at the factory where these images were made :) Thanks for making this kit available Artist. New supplier, new product and some minor supply glitches. But should it become a regular product, I am sure it will do well. 4 Stars (for now).
