Ultimately depends on which instrument and own personal preference

Microphone: The rock band and guitar band mic is the same in both series up onto harmonix's released a new one with rock band 3 which look better but overall it uses the same technology inside.

Guitar: Rock band has much more chose in these i.e. the beatles limited edition guitars, fenders stratocasters which was released with rock band 1 and then with rock band 2 (The latter was never released in the uk until the release of rock band 3)Guitar hero has mainly stuck with the same shape from the dawn of the full band game and only changed it on the new installment WOR .... I personally prefer the guitar hero as it has better build quality and will last longer. Rock band however has bought out a mustang which is like a real guitar and teaches you it which is really enjoyable.

Drums: I had a band hero set for years but when rock band 3 came out they included cymbals and the use of e kits with a midi adaptor that in my eyes has swapped me and it charts the song more realistically and are very well built.

Overall: If your on a budget definately by all means get either a band hero or guitar hero full band set you will by no means be disappointed but if you want to invest in a expensive rig that you might actually get more enjoyment out of mainly due to the real guitar and real drum charting in rock band I'd go for it

I prefer Guitar Hero.

Sam's pretty much nailed it. I personally prefer the GH guitars...but the Rock Band Pro instruments are truly exceptional.

Thanks Sam. Been wondering about this myself, and appreciate the insight!
