Earlier this year, it was announced that a special ION drumset would be released to work with Rock Band 2. Anyone who is a serious Rock Band fan and has a fat wallet will want to pick this one up. But from where? From Gamestop of course! It has now come to light that Gamestop will sell the drumset, but it aint cheap. Hit the jump for details, a picture of the drumset, price, and more.

The ION Drumset is no laughing matter. This thing means business. As you can see below it’s very well crafted, and has a much better look to it. It is also very quiet, so it won’t sound like you’re whacking empty milk jugs with sticks anymore (even though the new Rock Band 2 drumset is known to be more quiet). It is color coded according to the notes on screen, and there are cymbols on top that are alternatives to the toms/snares. It can also be used as a regular electronic drum kit if you really want to get into the drumming scene.

It also wont break (especially the drum pedal). This thing is heavy duty, and is built to last. But it’s not going to be cheap. Through all of the listings I’ve seen it’s around 300 USD which is about 212.49 EUR. Gamestop does not have a price just yet, but it will be posted as soon as it is known. To show the importance of having a STURDY PEDAL, I have posted a picture of a broken pedal. Whose pedal is it? Guess what, it’s mine. That was my first of 3.

Not much of a drummer to be honest. I want to be able to play ’em but me being crap is what stops me (might use the drum trainer in RB2). Won’t be picking up this drumset though I think it’s a little too hardcore for pretty much anyone.
