I bought this controller after reading a lot of reviews, I've had it for like a few weeks now, and it's great.
Yes the controller is small, but it's not THAT small, once you get used to it it'll naturally come to you.
The biggest problem I saw with reviews is the pedal. Every review I saw the reviewer complaining about how the pedal brakes on their first use. Honestly, I have no idea how they managed to break this thing. Sure it's nothing but a box with a little spring inside, it's not THAT easy to brake. I think these people are like STOMPING it. This, the same thing as the size, get used to it, and it's fine.
The pads though, are cheaply made, if you press down on one side of the pad, it's gonna rip off, so be careful.
Overall, I'm loving the controller, it came with a decent stand, and I'm enjoying it very much. In my honest opinion, this is a VERY good buy.
if you a Drummania player like me that plays on Advanced and EXTREME, the controller is NOT for you. This is a greatly recommended controller towards the Basic players, and new comers.
The pads work surprising well for the price that you are paying, however the actual drum pads are very small, and you will often miss, and hit the plastic.
The controller comes bundled with plastic drumsticks, which I do recommend anyone using. I would go to a store and pick up real drumsticks, but not ones that are as long as 5B's, or you will have to really choke up on the drumsticks to play.
The pedal is also not recommended. You can use other foot pedals from other stores, which is really nice. I personally use a ROCK BAND pedal that is taped to the ground, and it works perfect for playing on the topway.
Also after playing on this for a long time you are going to problem break the controller like I did. I had to open the controller and fix a wire I seemed to knock out that connected the pedal, and even then the pedal's wire still had to be put in a odd taped down area on the drumset.
Overall if you are new to the game, this is a great chance to start out, but if you have been playing for a while, just save up you money and buy a actual Drumset for the game (like a DTXPRESS), and a adapter (UX-16).
I give it a 3/5.
I cared to leave a comment.
I am having big fun with this controller, it is true that the pedal is not very good and the pad (right crash) they are not fantastic, also too much small for me that I have gotten used to that acoustics; In the end is a controller, a game, and with a bit of practises gets used and believe am amusing a lot me!!
P.s. Sorry the bad english
I have read a lots of bad comments about the Topway controller, but trust me it's a good controller for the price, the only thing that i dont like is the pedal but its not so bad ! Fast shipping i will buy again on play-asia !
If you can't afford thos expensive electric drum kits to play Drummania this is the best alternative there is. I ordered this on a monday and received it 2 days later. Great product and great shipping service. This controller deserves 5 stars!
