  amazing value and fun!!!

| | See all shaunchristie's reviews (2)

i bought this even after reading the reviews about the quality of the products and i must say ive had no issue with any of them. the guitar is amazing and i love the extra set of buttons high up the fret board (which to my memory the guitar hero guitar doesnt have). it felt solid and was responsive without being excessively noisy at all times. the drums are very good providing you hit them squarely and the mic looks and feels like a real mic which picks up your voice whether you are quiet or loud. all in all its an amazing set for a very good price and im now a rock band convert all the way!!!

  Pedal stoped working after 2 days

| | See all jominsons's reviews (1)

I read the reviews and thought I'd try the kit anyway. Good fun but I have to calibrate it to the TV every time I play (which I suppose is more of an issue with the game rather than the equipment here) and more irritatingly the pedal broke after 2 days. I was deliberately not heavy footed (after reading other similar reviews about the poor quality of the pedal) and it hasn't been knocked/thrown around or set up and put away repeatedly etc. The pedal is just plain cheap, expect a short life span (the pedal, not you obviously) if you buy........

  FANTASTIC VALUE

| | See all Daviduk2000's reviews (40)

3 Instruments, drums, guitar, and mic for only £54 this is a deal not to miss.
The instruments are all very sturdy and much more reliable than the recent guitar heros instruments (which are still fairly good)
The rock band guitar is strong, and silent strum bar (if your used to guitar hero guitars it may take a while to get used to a silent strum)

The drums are fairly noisey, unfortunatly. But are strong and sturdy, there have been few reports of breakage in pads and foot pedal but iv had mine 9 months now and still in perfect working condition.

And the mic well its a standard mic which can also be use in pc's .

All instruments work for all rock band games,
And all intstuments work in all guitar hero games from world tour onwards. (In other words the only games that the instruments dont work for is gh 2,3 and aerosmith and that includes the guitar which doesnt work either)

The instruments come with a 4 way usb hub so ports are not a problem

And this is a fantastic deal

The guitars strum bar stopped working, the red snare and the pedal broke through normal use. Atleast the mic is nice and sturdy.

  Great fun, sturdy instruments

These things take a beating, handy when used by drunks. Some issues with the drum response, just seems to have to be mega accurate, not a big deal though. All instruments are wired but you get a USB hub with it. Also says you can use any other hub. Also any USB mic will do, even the xbox live headset, so no worries if it breaks, which it shouldn't.

  All these Wired Instruments, only 2 USBs?

| | See all Jack90's reviews (6)

Is it possible to use all the instruments at the same time if they're all wired?

One word, Awesome! Serious good fun, for the serious gamers who are basically intent on 100% achievement points as it is every bit a challenge and for the people like me who get drunk with friends and think that we can become Metallica overnight only to wake up with a bad headache! Its better than GH3 for the pure reason that it just plays a hell of a lot better, its easier to follow and theres no major distractions from daft animations etc. The single player mode is solid as it plays pretty much like an arcade game. Easy, medium, hard then expert modes all with unlockable songs which you can then play in 'quick play' mode to fine tune your performance. Rock Band world Tour is probaly the best part of the game as it enables you to get together in a band with your mates or family and play gigs and sets at various locations around the world unlocking items (such as instruments, clothes, accessories etc.) and working your way up from the bottom of the music pile to the very top playing gigs for the chance to get bodyguards and band managers to join you on your way. And if that isnt enough you can download tunes from the XBOX live marketplace which is constantly updated. A must buy for well, just about anybody who wants to have serious amounts of fun! 5 stars but worth alot more. :P

This is a definite must have if you like GH. Its so much better than GH for the simple fact its clearer to see what your doing rather than the GH animations getting in the way.
