Again honestly the best drumset ive had and i have owned many kits but this is unreal JUST GET IT.
this drum set is a shell pack so what more do u want? the bass drumm comes with 4 little legs that holds it from slipping wich is great, the clams are solid and the heads are good not great but what do you expect they are stock heads.EVERITHING IS NICE.
Im gonna be honest, I have owned many drums kits tama,yamaha,worldmax,pearls etc, and honestly this drumkit its the best sounding drumkit that i have owned, im being honest cause i know people wants to buy the right kit and i like when people are honest so you wont be dissapointed.This kit for the money its almost hard to believe, many people mostly say bad things about drum kits wich are great because they dont know how to tune one so who doesnt know how to tune should stay quiet, this drum set like i said honestly sounds terrific the alder wood its perfect and i didnt even needed to muffle the bass or toms because they sound great without muffling, the snare drum is the best sounding drum on the kit sounds solid and it gives u that crack for rock music and other styles very well, like i said honestly this is a fantastic drumkit for the price and even if this was more expensive it doesnt matter its awesome all the way. This kit it can be compared to a yamaha stage custom that i have.
for the price of this kit its almost unreal everything is great.

Overall the Reflex Kit by ddrum is a really well made intermediate level drum kit for the asking price. The use of Alder wood gives the shells a really amazing ring, but it's not the lower even tone I was hoping for. The wrap on the shells are glued on really well so they are nice and secure, and the hardware is really solid, it's certainly a step above what you would find on the entry level kits. It looks good and it plays good. I took off all the stock heads and put my Remo's them before I played the kit, so I can't comment on whether the stock ddrum heads are good or not.

The major thing that lead me to rate this kit as 'Average' is because it was not as advertised which decreased my confidence in the company, not sure where the ball was dropped along the way so I don't want to point fingers. This kit advertised as a 22x20 bass drum with wood hoops, but when the UPS guys delivered the box I knew there was no way a 20in bass drum could possibly fit in the packaging, and sure enough when I opened the box and measured the bass drum it was only a 22x18 kick and it came with regular hard plastic hoops and not the wood ones as shown. When I contacted MusiciansFriend to let them know about the issue, they had the warehouse email me back, even though I asked and was told I would get a phone call, and all they did was say yes the bass drum is an 18 and not a 20 with plastic hoops, sorry about that, if we can help you further please call us back. So, unfortunately this purchase lowered my consumer confidence, but oh well, what can you do in this day and age of profit driven mass production except grin and bear it. It's still a decent enough kit for the money and wasn't worth raising a big stink over the bass drum being 2 inches shorter then advertised.

    Comments about Ddrum Reflex 5-Piece Shell Pack:

    I've had a drumset in my living quarters since high school. I'm going on Social Security in January, so that means a long time, kids. I've had Rogers, Slingerland, Gretsch and Ludwig, I happened to hear the ddrum Reflex Uptown kit demo'd when I was in the Twin Cities several years ago. My kit differs from what is for sale here only slightly, mostly a natural finish, different tom inventory (10, 12, 14 and 16), and a larger bass with wood hoops. Until I heard that demo I had mostly thought of ddrum as a trigger maker, and not much else. But I have to say that on that day I heard the most melodic and musical drum set, with real tone I had ever heard. I went shopping at once. I keep several Evans head sets at hand in case my mood or needs change. Right now Evans Black Chrome on all the toms. I think I'm leaning to the Evans Hydraulics as my favorites, though (I have blue...) I tune with a dial indicator type tuner and record all of my tuning settings in a notebook, and I use bearing edge lube. Speaking of, my set has great edges, but some times a clunker sneaks through, I guess. I am using the ddrum Kauri Wood snare right now, but the snare that came with my kit is very, very good, and can be tuned from a whip type crack to a mellow fellow. The point that I want to get across to beginning and intermediate drummers, and some advanced players, as well, is that the ddrum Reflex series might just be one of the most versatile kits on the market. It responds to head changes, tuning, and technique. It can play as technical as you want, or as loud and loose as the party demands. In the rehearsal room, the studio, or on stage, these drums will not let you down. You will not outgrow this drum kit in a short time. They are as sturdy as they are musical. The tone is amazing and rivals much more expensive kits. Oh, and they're a bargain! They might not do everything perfectly, but they do almost everything very well. And I like that.

    Comments about Ddrum Reflex 5-Piece Shell Pack:

    Ddrum has received a bad rep from its early days of drums. However, that era is long gone. Yet again Ddrum offers a killer kit for a killer price. The Reflex line came out and boasted it was the first all Alder wood kit, a wood with natural EQ and nice tone that guitars are often made from. I have to say, the kit sounds extremely well right out fo the box. The rack toms are pre-tuned to a nice pitch and tone and work well with the rest of the drums on the kit.

    Before mentioning more on the sound, I would like to talk about the hardware. The Refelx series uses a suspension moun system on it's two rack toms (10" and 12"). The system works really well and is stylish in its own way as well. I have the White kit and it looks great. The Chrome of the mounts really adds a nice flare to the vibrant white and off-white rims on the drums. The kit only comes with lugs and mounting hardware, so stands to mount to as well as pedals and extra stands are separately sold.

    Now back to the sound...simply put...the kit sounds great, especially for the price. For what you pay, you get a professional sound comparable to higher end Gretsch or Tama kits. Out of the box the toms and the snare are tuned and ready to go and have a really nice ring to them. The Kick and snare are my favorite. Throw some better heads on there and it'll probably make it even better. I am still using the stock ones.

    Finally, I would like to mention some nice touches. Ddrum put rubber washers on virtually everything than can rattle or take away from the sound of the kit. This is something I haven't seen on my previous kit that was more money. They really did a great job - the kit has no mysterious sounds, just pure tone. The round faceoff lugs looks stylish and nice enough as well, boasting the ability to pop them open for mounting mics and small accessories.

    Overall, if you don't mind a few wrap issues, this is a killer kit for killer price. It has a great sound, great look, as well as some features you find on higher price point kits. If you've been eyeing this kit...the reviews are accurate, it's great! Buy it and feel good about it!

      This kit is absolutely outstanding. It is amazing for the price. I was skeptical because of the price, but I ordered it with Evans heads and it has not let me down yet. It has the same qualities as a custom kit, but its over half the price. I've had mine for a little over 2 years and couldn't picture myself playing on anything else. If you're even considering it, buy it. It will not be a let down.

        When it came my first thought was "WOOOOW it's really beautifull". I boutgh the white one anda i got to say I was really impressed.
        The sound it's really good (compared to the previous drumset I had), it's really smooth, it is reallly good for Metal or Rock music. The bass drum sounds really loud and punchy and it has a great cut.
        If yu want a kit that sounds good but not to expensive, I DEFINITELY yous should grab this one.

        this is my second drum set i have owned and it a fantastic drum set, the bass drum is amazing, the snare drum is the best thing in this whole kit, the only flaws are the rack toms are almost impossible to tune without new heads, floor is tough also, and the stock heads are mediocre. i play metal and this kit does the trick, the snare is for tight tuning clearly, absolutely amazing snare for metal drummers. Just like all bass drums, for that punchy sound u need a little bit of muffling and this one sounds fantastic, overall a GREAT kit for intermediate to professional drummer.

            This is a great kit for the price. I have owned it for a year now. And I do not regret this purchase. It gives off a great tone and a strong sound. The tom clamps grip on very well and stay locked in. The toms themselves are very powerful and give a nice strong hit. The bass really gives the "Boom" I was wanting in a bass drum, and it is nice having the bass separated from the toms unlike some kits. It makes transporting them that much easier. I can't fine a single issue with this kit. Just get it tuned up right, and it will do amazing things. Also, I love the 8-inch tom. It gives a nice tone and sounds great when you work it into some fills.
            Overall, this is a great product. I do not once regret this purchase. I recommend it to anyone looking for a nice kit to take around and have fun.

              Comments about Ddrum Reflex 5-Piece Shell Pack:

              This set is amazing. Pure and simple. I've been playing drums for around ten years and this is by far the most versatile kit I've ever played. I do home recording for rock, metal, punk and jazz. This set does it all.

              I knew I was going to replace the heads fairly soon, because I favor the Evans G2 coateds, but the stock heads actually are NOT BAD. They are very weighty and help control those stock overtones you get on nearly every set. I must say I was very impressed.

              The kick drum is pure gold. It has the most projection of any kit I've ever played.

              The snare is perfect. Loosen the snare wires and use it for jazz, tighten them up a bit and it sounds perfect for any type of rockish music.

              The Toms are beautiful. Perfect amount of attack, wonderful tone.

              The suspension system is genius. You can set this kit up in any combination you are comfortable with.

              If you are thinking about buying this kit, you are overthinking it. I've played a Gretch Catalina kit back in high school, and I believe this kit is far above it. And the price MF is asking for it, I mean this is just a steal.

                      Overall the Reflex Kit by ddrum is a really well made intermediate level drum kit for the asking price. The use of Alder wood gives the shells a really amazing ring, but it's not the lower even tone I was hoping for. The wrap on the shells are glued on really well so they are nice and secure, and the hardware is really solid, it's certainly a step above what you would find on the entry level kits. It looks good and it plays good. I took off all the stock heads and put my Remo's them before I played the kit, so I can't comment on whether the stock ddrum heads are good or not.

                      The major thing that lead me to rate this kit as 'Average' is because it was not as advertised which decreased my confidence in the company, not sure where the ball was dropped along the way so I don't want to point fingers. This kit advertised as a 22x20 bass drum with wood hoops, but when the UPS guys delivered the box I knew there was no way a 20in bass drum could possibly fit in the packaging, and sure enough when I opened the box and measured the bass drum it was only a 22x18 kick and it came with regular hard plastic hoops and not the wood ones as shown. When I contacted MusiciansFriend to let them know about the issue, they had the warehouse email me back, even though I asked and was told I would get a phone call, and all they did was say yes the bass drum is an 18 and not a 20 with plastic hoops, sorry about that, if we can help you further please call us back. So, unfortunately this purchase lowered my consumer confidence, but oh well, what can you do in this day and age of profit driven mass production except grin and bear it. It's still a decent enough kit for the money and wasn't worth raising a big stink over the bass drum being 2 inches shorter then advertised.
