If you live in an apartment or you are simply in a place where you cannot make too much noise, and you want to have a drum set to play or study, you are probably thinking about getting an electronic drum set (or e-drum).
If you don’t know where to start looking, here is a recommendation for practicality and price-quality ratio.
Why do I recommend the Millennium MPS-750X?
Many students ask me about electronic drums to start, until a few months ago, I used to recommend the Millenium MPS-150X which is currently (06/18/2023) at €385, with free shipping.
The truth is that the Millenium MPS-150X is a good set to start with, with mesh heads and a real kick pedal (please never buy one with an electronic kick pedal). The Hi-Hat pedal is electronic (as in the most of the small sets) and, although the sounds are very basic, it is a good set to have at home as a study tool, you cannot ask for much more.
Given that the price of the Millenium MPS-750X has dropped and is now only €113 more (at this time 06/18/2023 is €498 with shipping included), in recent months I have been recommending this set from Thomann.
Hi-Hat with real stand
It seems to me one of the most remarkable things about this set, the small electronic drum sets usually come with an electronic pedal that simulates the real one.
The problem is that in the “economy” sets there are only two hi-hat positions: open and closed. On the MPS-750X, the travel is wider and more real, there are intermediates between open and closed, and the feel of the Hi-Hat sustain pedal is real. So if you’re going to play in an acoustic set afterwards there will be difference, obviously, but it will not be that much.
Goodbye cables, hello Bluetooth
The Millenium MPS-750X E-Drum Mesh Set also features Bluetooth connectivity, adding an extra level of convenience and functionality. Using the wireless Bluetooth connection, you can easily link your mobile device, such as a smartphone or tablet, to play backing tracks, practice with tutorials, or even record your practice sessions.
This feature allows you to get the most out of your electronic drum set by giving you instant access to a wide range of musical resources and applications, all without the need for additional cables.
Versatility and customization
The Millenium MPS-750X set offers a wide range of sounds and configurations to suit your musical needs and preferences. With over 600 high-quality drum and percussion sounds, you can explore various genres of music and create your own unique style. Furthermore, the kit can be easily customized by assigning sounds to each of the pads and programming individual settings.
This electronic drum set is loaded with advanced features that take your playing skills to the next level. From the ability to record and playback your performances to the ability to connect external devices like music players or computers. The MPS-750X gives you a world of creative possibilities.
In addition, its USB port allows a direct connection to your favorite DAW, which facilitates music production and integration into professional recording studios.
Where can I buy it?
You can get it on the Thomann website, clicking here: Millenium MPS-750X E-Drum Mesh Set
It takes about 7-10 days for you to receive it at your home or at a selected delivery point. If you have never bought from Thomann, just tell you that it is super reliable. Surely more than 90% of the musicians that roam the peninsula have ever bought in this store.
I hope this recommendation will help you!
