The fully-suspended toms feature “quick" sizes, which provide punchy tones and allow for lower positioning to benefit younger drummers. A non-drilled bass drum ensures a lasting resonance and comes with a quality sound-dampened bass drum head.

        Hardware is double braced and includes stylized Gretsch Energy pedal boards. All Poplar shells have 30-degree bearing edges, and feature 5 lug configuration on 10" and 12" toms with Gretsch style lug that draw from the rich Gretsch lineage. The suspended tom hardware also includes memory locks and a ball and socket setup to ensure an easy and ergonomic setup.

          Comments about Gretsch Drums Energy 5-Piece Drum Set with Hardware and Sabian SBR Cymbals  :

          I bought this drum kit a couple months ago (This being my first full drum-set I've bought) and I've been mostly pleased with the overall outcome of it all. The drum heads, of course, need to be replaced cause they just cave in in about a day. The assembly of the drums themselves may be confusing to novices as there are no clear instructions. I also found the packaging confusing as there were no clear labels on where all the parts were located and it took a good hour to find the one part I was looking for. There is a bit of reverb on the toms, but you can fix that easily.
          Overall, it is a great kit for beginner drummers as well as a good kid for more experienced drummers.

          Comments about Gretsch Drums Energy 5-Piece Drum Set with Hardware and Sabian SBR Cymbals  :

          All this kit needs is better heads and a better bass pedal. The stock heads can be made to sound decent with something to dampen the sound. Overall it is a good value and a good starting point for novice or even for experienced drummers.

          Comments about Gretsch Drums Energy 5-Piece Drum Set with Hardware and Sabian SBR Cymbals  :

          This drumset is great! the bass drum is just amazing, you need to complete take off the heads for the toms to tune them just right but they sound really good, wouldnt hurt to get some new heads though. the cymbals are okay..the damage real easy ive only played em for a total of about an hour and they already have a bunch of marks on them. but the ride sounds incredible for the price, the crash is okay and i just use the hihats on another stand off to the side for a higher "chick" sound when i need it, or for closed hihats using double bass. the hardware is AMAZING, its so solid and sturdy. Overall this is an amazing deal, just upgrade your batter heads and the cymbals when they ware down!

          Great Kit, Terrible Cymbals

          By Zachary Hinkofer

          from Central Florida

          Comments about Gretsch Drums Energy 5-Piece Drum Set with Hardware and Sabian SBR Cymbals  :

          I've had these for about two months and they sound incredible. After putting EMADs on the kick drum, it has a serious punch. The snare has a solid sound with both loose and tight tunings, however the throwoff switch feels flimsy. I tend to keep the head tight and kill the ring with a Rem-O dampener. The toms all took quite a bit of tweaking to get them to sound how I wanted, but now that I've broken in the heads, they sound great. The floor tom has a nice low hit to it.
          The hardware feels solid and if I didn't have anything better to use, the kick pedal isn't a terrible option. If you have the extra money, I would reccomend getting a Tama Speed Cobra, which is ridiculously cheap for its quality.
          There is one HUGE problem that I have with the set though: the cymbals. These Sabian SBRs sound like utter garbage. They hit like cheap Meinls and they tone is atrocious. My son has a small First Act kit that I got him last Christmas and the crash on that has a better sound. Seriously, it doesn't matter what you get to replace them, just make sure you do. I went and took the cheap option and purchased the Wuhan Traditional Cymbal set and added their crash/ride, and their splash. Personally I think they sound wonderful with the drums.
          Aside from the kick, which has an EMAD resonant head, I left all the other resonant heads stock. On the snare I put a coated Remo Emporer with the reverse dot, and the toms I put Aquarian Performance II Powerdots. I really love the Aquarians for my toms, but I will say that the powerdots take some time breaking in, and don't sound great out of the box. Once they're worn in though, they sound incredible.

          Overall, I would say that this kit is a steal for its features, quality and price, just don't expect miracles from the cymbals.
