    and simmons himself is there after the drummer takes us for a tour around the kit. we've come a looooong way with electronic drums, but this is a very cool video!

    Electronic kits have come a long way since then. Our son had a Yamaha electronic kit, and the module was about the size of an iPad mini, only thicker. It had 50 kit presets on it. Cool video!

    It was a DTX500, like this:

    We sold the kit to my brother for my nephew, who plays drums in the school band. Our son is more interested in piano now.
