    Comments about Gretsch Drums Blackhawk 5-Piece Euro Drum Set with Sabian Cymbals:

    Great reviews and a well-known name drew me to this set as a trade up for my son's first full-size set outside of school. There were no instructions and when I called musician's friend, they referred me to UTUBE which I thought was seriously lame. They couldn't even have a link?
    Whatever. But then, while unwrapping the set, I found, on one of the base drum hoops, a 1" chip in the paint lacquer on the outside. I called customer service and they said I had 2 choices:
    1- to return the entire set for an entire new set (NOT a good choice as the thing weighs a ton and came in three--now empty--boxes which I did NOT want to repack).
    2- to keep the damaged hoop and get a ridiculously small discount.
    Not psyched about either choice but less psyched about packing up the whole kit so I took the measly discount and glued and taped the hoop and then hid the "fracture" under a clamp.

    Why couldn't they have just sent me a new hoop and sent the damaged one back to Gretsch with a different set?

    Seems like a no-brainer.
    Anyway, the drum set is nice and my kid loves it. Great sound and the full set of cymbals are pretty awesome. Happy with this purchase despite the crummy customer service. But now I'm glad I got the 2-year insurance.

    Delivers nice sound.

    Comments about Gretsch Drums Blackhawk 5-Piece Euro Drum Set with Sabian Cymbals:

    Not disappointing at all worth the buy for the sound it generates!
    I use this drum to teach in one music academy, and it sound very nice considering the level it supposedly comes in. Though the hard ware can slight be better especially the hi hat stand. Overall this drums delivers nice tone with the proper tuning, it may out do other brands at the same level and price. Worthy for any drummer, not just beginners!

    Amazing

    Comments about Gretsch Drums Blackhawk 5-Piece Euro Drum Set with Sabian Cymbals:

    Everything was great about this drum set. The cymbals it came with are also amazing which you wouldn't expect from a price this great!!! The ride cymbal carries out very nicely the high hats are great as well as the crash !! I bought new drum heads though just because i love remo drum heads (pinstripe) and i made a great desicion they sound perfect with the toms on this set. You might want to buy a new snare head too but thats about it. Once they were all fixed up with new heads wow......more than expected!!!!! I highly suggest this if you want to save a bit of money and still want a high quality drum set great job Gretsch

    Great

    Comments about Gretsch Drums Blackhawk 5-Piece Euro Drum Set with Sabian Cymbals:

    Gretsch is an awesome drum maker. These drums really kick and they are not just a beginner set. Very Sturdy. The deal is great the only thing I can mark off on it is the crash cymbal does not have a great crash sound.
    Great Drum set , gretsch has outstanding sound and quality.
    Very Sturdy.

    Great drums at a good cost

    By John Goins

    from Wyoming

    Comments about Gretsch Drums Blackhawk 5-Piece Euro Drum Set with Sabian Cymbals:

    For the price quality and the hardware this gets a 11 out of 10. Because of the crappy heads it gets a 10 outta 10. For any skill level this is a great drum kit
    Overall this kit is great. The symbols are good for the price and the kit itself is easy to set up and transfer. It only comes with a single kick, which is ok cause i prefer to test the kick pedals i use before i buy them. All the hardware came with and a throne. The heads it came with are pretty crappy but thats standard. I found that remos seem to bring out the best sound in this kit.
    For the price your paying its great. I've played on cheap and expensive kits and this one can keep up with any expensive kit.
    As i've mentioned before its great.

    A Product Of Amazement

    By Drumagirl481

    from U.S.A

    Comments about Gretsch Drums Blackhawk 5-Piece Euro Drum Set with Sabian Cymbals:

    This drumset is AMAZING! I do not regret getting this drum set. It comes with everything you need. I only have a few cons about this. No. 1- The snare drum is horrible. I tried tuning it and it sounded dry and bad. I reccomend you get new heads for the snare or buy a new one. No. 2- The spring for the bass pedal comes off easily. The first full day I had with the drums was this: every five minutes I had to put the spring back on. But, I tightened the spring and now my kick pedal is great. No. 3- The set does not come with instructions. But, it's pretty easy to set up, anyway.
    This set has a lot of pros. No. 1- The toms and bass drum are unbelievable. They sound nice and rich. Don't bother tuning the toms. They sound great. The bass drum I reccomend you tune a little. No. 2- The cymbals are high quality. They sound amazing. The hi hat has a nice little click to it. The splash and crash sound awesome to liven up a beat. The ride cymbal has an amazing tone to it and can carry a ride simply. Overall, I have nothing really bad to say about this drum kit. It's a great way to start off a drumming career. It's great for a beginner to a pro. I reccomend this to anyone. It's worth the $$$$$. So buy it today. Not tomorrow. Today!!!!! Thank you Gretsch!!!!
