I play with a drummer occasionally who can get amazing grooves out of his, but he's trained in hand percussion, tabla and all sorts.

But yeah if you can play, they're great.

I had one of these and they are marvellous. I have some recordings with it on. Here is one. The basic percussion track is a Handsonic Loop. There is additional percussion on there that is also the Handsonic and there is some real percussion too. I have other that are interesting and will try and post them.

I don't think, therefore I am not...

On with the dance and let the joy be unconfined (whether there's any dance to dance or any joy to unconfine)

I have a Korg Wavedrum (Global edition), which is a similar concept but a bit cheaper. I really rate it, though I have yet to use it on a recording. It has a real, tunable, drum skin and is very responsive to different kinds of touch, muting etc. No MIDI out though.
