I’ll admit that Rock Band was kind of fun for a while, but I haven’t touched the game for at least a few months now. Normally that’s not a problem since it means the game just goes back on the shelf until I gain interest again, but with Rock Band I also have to find a place to stash a guitar and a drum kit. So I kind of wish I had this portable Rock Band drum kit from Mad Catz instead, since it appears to monopolize far less real estate in your living room.
The durable drum pads are designed to be played on any solid surface (you might want to skip the glass coffee table) and feature rubber drumheads that should withstand over a million strikes from the included soft-tip drumsticks. It also comes with an ultra-thin navigation panel for “easy in-game setup” as well as a compact kick drum pedal. In fact the whole set looks like it could be easily crammed into a backpack, and with a price tag of $59.99 I’m sorely tempted to pick one up to replace my official Rock Band kit.
