I just finally got my hands on the drum kit for the wii and I like it alot except I am having same issues as the stock kit from activision as far as sensitivity. Is someone working on tuning software that will work with this kit ? I hope so because this could be a really great kit otherwise but if it is not accurate then its a waste of money. My biggest issue is a red drum that is not picking up all the hits , misses about every 5-10 notes , I can see it happening in the music studio. I really hope I can get this worked out somehow ?? I really like it otherwise , Help !! Please

It's a shame logitech walked away from this drum kit and won't even respond to questions about it !!! It is an awesome drum kit that just needs a little tweaking and it would be perfect !! Fortunately I have the fix for this kit and it works awesome now !!! Unfortunately I did not get the answer from logitech !! I just got ignored !! The fix costs about $ 15.00 and is very easy to do , I can't take the credit for it because I am not the one who figured it out .

Hello Todd and Charles,
Not to be mean, but I don't see what Logitech Customer Support could do. I had sensitivity and crosstalk problems too, so I contacted them. They admitted my drum is defective, but they say they have no controller in stock to replace it. They offered to refund me the price I paid for the drum. I wasn't interested because I'd lose the money I paid for the shipping. I offered to wait until they have replacement parts/kits, but they just decided my warranty is void because I bought the drum from what they call a "non-certified vendor" who may sell refurbished or used products, even though I can prove it's brand new - Logitech could see that on the invoice I sent them, anyway.
They completely ignored my questions about a tuning software.
So, as I'm now stuck with a drum that doesn't work well, I'd be interested about your fix, Todd. Could you tell us more please?

Tood, Charles, "O",
I am in the same position. I just got a new Logitech Wii Drum Kit and it has dreadfully low sensitivity that makes it unplayable. I simply have to strike the pads & cymbals WAY too firm to get them to register.
On my GHWT Drum kit, I have scored 1200 Note Streaks. On the Logitech, I am having trouble reaching a 3x Multiplier which is less than 50 notes!
Using the Guitar Hero 5 "GHmix2.0" music studio, the game displays a number from 0-20 indicating the strength of the drum strikes registering in the game.
Using my GHWT drum kit with typical strikes, the game registers a number of 5-7 on average, across all pads/cymbals.
Using the Logitech with the same typical strikes, the game registers 0-2 on average, sometimes not registering the strike at all! This is consistent across all pads/cymbals on the Logitech, leading me to conclude that the Logitech "controller box" has a faulty sensitivity calibration. I say "faulty" because there is no means for adjustment! On my GHWT kit, at least it has the MIDI USB Drum Tuner that let me calibrate the sensitivity - my GHWT kit was initially just as bad as the Logitech UNTIL I tuned the calibration.
My Logitech WOULD be great IF I could double the sensitivity calibration. But I can't.
I called Logitech Customer Support today and after 40 minutes of troubleshooting/investigation, we concluded that I'm basically stuck with a useless 1-day-old drum kit that I can't play. They offered a refund but I won this drum kit in a Logitech-sponsored contest, and without a store receipt they can't process a refund. They told me the same thing "O" mentioned - they have no parts in stock to replace mine with.
So Todd, Please share your $15 fix, we are desperate, and our Logitech Drum kits are useless until you can share the fix!
