tempting, but with them not really releasing replacement instruments anymore (and places asking crazy prices for what is still available) I'm holding off on any new DLC.  you'd think after nearly 2 years they'd do a new batch of instruments.

Because I can,
also because I don't care what you want.

Still rocking the ION kit here - that's most of what I care about.

Yep I bought a Roland set that was quite expensive but one of the best purchases that I've made.  Extremely fun with Rockband.

Ditto. I think Harmonix' best decision was to make the ION kit compatible with electronic drum kits. I was able to expand the number of cymbals by using Pintech electronic cymbals with no problem at all.

A Pew Research Center poll found nearly half of Americans hold the false belief that TARP was passed under President Obama, while only 34 percent know it originated under Bush.
"Oh yeah?" Bush replied. "50% of the people were wrong."

The ION holds up really well.  I've had to change out the yellow cymbal twice in 5 years.  Can't argue that.  biggrin   Got a picture of that Roland, shon?

Here is my set, a little hard to take pictures since I moved it into my back bedroom which is my music room.  I did go overboard but it's just so much fun to play.  I have it setup so that I play through a drum amp so I can hear what I'm actually playing instead of the game drum sounds.  I also have software that let's you do flams and other tweaks so that you can play the songs as you normally would with real drums.  If you do play a lot then I would suggest upgrading to at least a Roland TD6.  I had a friend who played on the IONS with his son for a couple of years and then I sold him my set and he is in heaven now.  I upgraded to a little bit better set but the mesh heads really do make a difference.
