Well, the Zendrum is _very_ cool, you have to wear one to reall understand 
just how well laid out the pads are, but it's designed as a controller 
only, not a sound source. And yeah, at US $1450 for the low-end model,

Oh yes. :)

One of the fun demos that Roland Percussion Demo God "Steve" liked to do 
was to create a jazz percussion section on the fly. He'd lay down a drum 
track, then a percussion track and then add a tuned bass line. Them while 
that sequence was in PLAY mode, he'd play a "lead" line over the top of it.

All from the pads on the HPD-15. :)
