So I saw an electric drum kit the other day for $1,200. What exactly is the difference in quality that makes the price so different

Depends on what the other kit was. There is wide variety in pad construction, hardware, drum modules, etc. Your comment is like saying in response to a car on sale for $20,000 that you saw a car advertised for $60,000 and asking what's the difference in quality that justifies the price.

Much higher end "brain" (the module that plays all the drums sounds/processing), and better overall drums in the more expensive kit - the high end kits have mesh drum pads(which feel very close to real drum heads but without the noise) vs this kit's rubber pads (which are a bit louder when you hit them, and feel much more 'dead' and less realistic). I think the high end kit has more trigger zones as well, which means smacking different parts of the drums (center vs edge) triggers different sound variations. I'm sure the rack is sturdier on the more expensive one too.

Hope that helps!

I'm not a drum expert specifically, but like most instruments, there are varying "tiers" of quality and capability in digital drum sets. The nicer sets will have drum faces that feel more like actual drums, where the cheaper ones definitely do not feel as natural. More adjustments and positioning options in the nicer kits as well. You'll also get additional capabilities in the sensors and controller. On higher end kits you will get more/different sensors that will cause different types of inflections in the sound based on where on the pad you hit. Cymbals are a good example of this. Go watch a youtube review of each of these two sets, and you'll pretty quickly see the differences in the technology between the two sets. The difference in feel is a bit harder to quantify without seeing it in person, but in general the more you spend the more real it feels.

I've always wanted to get a set for my music room to learn on, and something around the TD-25K would probably be where I would personally choose to start out.

As the other users said, the $1299 kit has far better drum brain and the pads are all mesh with rims which allow for sidestick/rimshot triggering and the snare senses hit position as well. (Some Superior Drummer 3 sounds have articulations for center and off-center snare hits as well as rimshots and cross-stick play.) The hi-hats are mounted on a stand which allows for differences in pressure and pedal play in a more realistic manner than hitting a pad and using a controller pedal. The cymbals have multiple zones since you get a different sound when you strike the edge vs. the bow vs. the bell and drum samples have those variations.

Had this model for a year before trading it up for a larger set. It is slightly too small and wobbly to satisfy - ultimately bought a TD-11 a year later.
