All things considered, an acoustic kit is less hassle to deal with, (Especially in small venues when you don't need a mic on every drum, or sometimes no mics at all), more practical from a maintenance point of view, (If the "brain" of an electronic kit breaks down, and it WILL, you're done for, where replacing a single head or cymbal is a much cheaper proposition.), and better for he other musicians you're playing with.
Those folks who say it's easier to set up an electronic kit sound wise usually don't have much practical experience with mic'ing "real" drums.
To me there's absolutely no substitute for doing what a drum does, same as a bass cab, IT MOVES AIR!
Anyone who's played for even a short time will understand what i mean.
It seems that lately, everybody's crying in their beer - I know that only the good die young - That's why I'm still here!

lectric kits are cool for practicing quietly but when it comes to kicking out the jams acoustic kits are the only way to go
