    I do like them, but no - I have an electronic kit to keep the volume down and to mix up the sounds.

    Electronic drums are great from a sound guy's perspective. It's one of the few ways to "tame" a drummer. The only things I don't like about electronic drums are the cymbals and snare sounds. What do you use to amplify them?

    The Roland has pretty decent sounds built-in plus you can sculpt them a good bit. It's not the same as a real set but once you mike them and an engineer tweaks at them, I'm not sure there's much difference in most settings. Unless you want nuance like for jazz.

    For home practice I usually just use headphones for the drums. Everything (including guitar) is plugged into a Presonus Rack mixer and goes to two Yamaha DSR112 speakers. That's more than enough for a bonus room practice space.
