Nope... look acoustics or electromechanical and digital/electronics there is a ton of difference.

Imagine Medeski, Martin & Wood playing on a E drum and using Nord leads instead of his Grand Piano, Hammond B3, Hohner D6 Clavinet, Wurlitzer, Arp Solina, Mellotron. etc... it would sound half as sweet and it would limit Them severely in the expression and multitude of sounds they are able to get from the real deal.

Of course the statement that 'people who play E kits are not real drummers' is false. I agree with that.
