Tony Long Music has done a full review of the Traps E500 kit.
Well the obvious conclusion is that this is such a great product for the money, full size drums all with mesh-heads and all other hardware included. At this price-point, no-one should find fault with it because you really do get a lot here. On no other kit do you get a 20 inch Bass Drum and the addition of a USB connection, a recording facility and the ability to store to SD Card as well as play MIDI files. I think if I was making these kits, I would make a few improvements and charge a little bit more, still keeping the price very competitive. I would look to try and improve the Hi-Hat and Cymbals, do away with the blue colours around the kit, improve the packaging a bit and re-write the manual. If I could still do it without significantly increasing the cost then I would also look to improve some of the minor triggering issues and look to achieve a slightly better dynamic response.
So if you are looking for a compact Mesh-Head kit for an unbelievable price then I would certainly give the Traps E500 a bash because I really do believe you would be pressed to find an electronic kit that offers this much in this price bracket.
