Shipped to Florida and forwarded on a boat to the VI. It arrived and the box was still solid, no damage. Santa delivered it and I set it up with the aid of my 8yr old. All the pieces were there and it was easy to setup. I'm a bass player but it's necessary to have my kids try each instrument to see which one they'll stick with and my 8yr old always liked drums. They're loud so be prepared. With the aid of the youtube setup and tuning guide and other drum instructions, he's already showing signs of greatness. All he needs to learn now are the 3 P's (practice, practice, practice). I love the set, it looks and sounds great.

This drumset can not be tuned to sound good. I am not sure if it is because the hoops arent warped or if the drum shells arent straight/true (meaning they are not perfectly flat).

Something is up with these drums where the heads have massive ripples in them even after (attempting) tuning.

I own many drumsets including 2 Reference, been playing 30+ years, have tuned drums many many times. THIS DRUMSET is the ONLY set I have ever tried to tune where basically put YOU CANT.

IF you tune to a very high pitch both top and bottom heads, then you can get the ripples/waves in the drumheads to flatten out and "go away". But medium to low tuning is impossible being that the drumheads will have these massive ripples left in them (think waves in the water - that is the surface of the drum heads).

Heads I used:
-Stock heads which came with the set
-Pinstripes
-clear ambassadors on the bottom
-Evans

Untunable being that unless you crank these drums up high, the heads will have massive ripple/waves in them.

Very poor quality.

      Comments about Ludwig Junior Outfit Drum Set:

      I played many drums in my youth and I love what the great drum company "Ludwig" did with this Jr. set. I looked at so many other companies Jr. sets and they most had thin metal pedals like soda can tin. They had junky shells and bad tone. These Ludwig cymbals are not high end at all, but they have decent sound for young starters and are much better than most other Jr. set cymbals. Chain connector on hi hat stand instead of a thin band of material or rubber is so professional. Don't waste your money on other Jr. sets. Musicians friends employee was awesome and knew the product. He discounted the drums even more than their already good price and then I got the 2 year protection plan to be sure that all or anything would be replaced should my little 7 year old son knock over part of the set, drop or break anything. I also purchased 2 other products the same day from the same employee. What a great experience and my son loves his beautiful blue set. The black or red sets are probably nicely finished as well. Thanks Joshua at Musicians Friend. I will be buying some string instruments soon from you.

      MF delivered a multi-piece drum set with no assembly instructions. Only a drum authority could assemble it. It cost me dearly to have it assembled in my home. A terrible way to treat a customer.

        Comments about Ludwig Junior Outfit Drum Set:

        Without a doubt the best deal available on a beginners kit for a child 10 or under. Everything is included, even the throne. The overall build quality is great and they look and sound great. Just spend a little time tuning the drums correctly and add some dampening inside the kick drum along with a strike pad on the batter head. The snare drum sounds especially good. The cymbals are just stamped sheet metal and sound like garbage although what do you expect? For now, my grandson is only 3 and the cymbals are fine. If he shows interest in continuing to play a year or so from now, I'll replace them with lower-end real cymbals. The sticks included probably should not be used. Too thick and heavy. Buy a few pair of youth 11" or 13" actual drum sticks such as those made by Vic Firth. Whoever you buy these for will love them.

            I bought this set or my two boys (6 and 2) and I could not be happier with it. The joy and excitement I saw in their eyes could not have been more worth it. The quality is incredible and while it didn't come with instructions (Ludwig has great setup videos on YouTube) the setup was very easy even for somebody with limited experience with drums. They tuned up easily and look beautiful. Ludwig really delivered on this set.

              Comments about Ludwig Junior Outfit Drum Set:

              I was going to end my comments with this paragraph but thought I should lead with it: BE SURE TO GET HEARING PROTECTION FOR YOUR CHILD. THESE DRUMS HAVE A HUGE SOUND. That said, here's my review:

              I bought this kit for my 11-year old daughter after 9 months of her begging to play drums. I play guitar so drums to me is another language. I did my research, visited my local music store and asked around. But once I saw this "Jr." kit I knew this was the route for me. All the reviews read the same "this isn't a toy kit!", "It's the real deal just smaller", "Huge sound".

              When the kit arrived, everything was nicely packaged in the box. Upon opening and inspecting, only the crash symbol was dinged up. But nothing to send it back over. Everything looked great. I ordered the Red Wine which looks amazing with the chrome rims. Again, it's a real kit just smaller!

              Speaking of the symbols, the high-hat and crash symbols are beyond basic but still get the job done for a beginner. The (2) tom-toms and floor sound great and the snare and base drums are rockin! Note: Put an old pillow in the base drum to dampen the sound. The throne (ie seat) is tiny.

              Assembly: This is where Ludwig fumbled. No instructions! But there are some great videos on YouTube that walk you through the assembly. With help from the videos, it took about an hour to assemble and another 20-30 minutes to tune.

              Once assembled I thought the kit looked small for her. My daughter is 5'. Once she sat down and began to play, it was the right choice.

              She loves the kit! As a guitarist, I love that I can jam and learn songs with her (we are working on Seven Nation Army which is a good entry level song to learn drums on). But more importantly, as a father, I'd rather hear the drums shake the house versus hearing the TV!
