    I'm sure if they are Playstation controllers, that they can't be played with on another system like the Wii. But they will play on a Play Station.

    You could get the Rock Band 3 Wireless Fender Stratocaster Guitar Controller for Wii for $59.99 on amazon.com and the Pro Drums with Pro Cymbals (the Pro drums game mode featuring regular drum gameplay + 1-3 cymbals only for use in Rock Band 3 though) at amazon.com for $124.02. I'm pretty sure the pro drums kit can be used in Lego: Rock Band, just you won't use the 3 cymbals. But you will use the 4 drum pads and bass pedal to play drum notes in lego Rock Band. If someone could please confirm that the Pro Rock Band 3 drums will work in Lego Rock Band, besides the actual Pro mode, thanks.

    Or if that gives you sticker shock, try searching craigslist in your area. There are a ton of cheap plastic instrumental deals out there from people looking to unload.

    There's no such thing as a 'Pro drum kit'. It's just the regular kit with the regular cymbals in a bundle package.

    MadCatz says you're wrong.

    ...which is just the regular drum kit with the RB3 cymbals. Without the cymbals, there's nothing pro about it.

    Again, no, there isn't. There are Pro cymbals. And Pro-compatible drum kits. There is no such thing as a Pro drum kit. MegaIronDragonDeath asked for confirmation that the 'RB3 Pro Drums work in LEGO'. There is no such product, and as a matter of fact, the product in question is no different from the one we got in 2008 anyways.

    The manufacturer of the pro drum kits disagrees with you. It's time for you to understand that you do not know more than the manufacturer.

    So name all the differences between the 'Pro' kit and the RB2 kit we saw in 2008, two years before Pro drums was an option.

    I was just calling it somewhat like what I saw it was called on amazon.com http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=rock+band+pro+drum . If I hadn't looked on amazon.com to find the price for the item first, then I would have called it the rock band 3 drum kit with pro cymbals.

    Guys, this thread has gone wildly off-topic in a way that's not at all helpful to the original poster. No gold stars for you.

    OP, your Playstation instruments will not work on a Wii. You will have to purchase Wii-specific instruments if you want to play on that console.
