    Comments about Ludwig Pocket Kit:

    I bought this product for my 4-year-old son as I want to teach him how to play. When I got the box I was immediately impressed by the overall fit and finish. The hardware seems sturdy. As I started to assemble the kit I noticed that there were a couple of tension rod washers missing, which was disappointing but minor. After assembling and tuning the kit up, I will say that it sounds better than I expected (even the cymbals). Unfortunately a couple of issues have left me (and my son) disappointed.

    1) The kit says that it's intended for 4-10 year olds, but the throne on the shortest setting is still way too tall. My son is at 41" tall which is right at the average for his age, and he's several inches too short to reach the pedals.
    2) The big one: the beater angle of the pedal is so far back that it's very, very difficult to use. I've been drumming for years and it's very difficult for me to push down -- almost impossible for my son to even get it to touch the head, let alone actually play it. There is no beater angle adjustment, and increasing the spring tension or tightening the hoop fastener only makes it worse.

    I'm currently pursuing warranty options but, unfortunately unless I just got a defective pedal I'm afraid I'll have to return the product.

    Comments about Ludwig Pocket Kit:

    Pleasantly surprised by this drum kit & it's accessories. Stoked it's a Questlove model for kids! I said I would never buy a beginner kit for my son's first kit, but the Silver Sparkle w/Black hardware was hard to pass up. This kit is quality for the price, especially with a MF discount. The cymbal arm holds a 17" Zildjian Medium Crash (used as a ride) with no problem. I replaced the batter heads with Remo Emporer Coated, and I think the drums have a nice sound, for a beginner kit. In my opinion, the cymbals could be a bit better. The hi hats are below average at best, and the "crash" sounds like a tin plate. But they provide a fine start, and upgrading to real cymbals is not too expensive. Overall, I think it's a great deal!

        Comments about Ludwig Pocket Kit:

        I'm a veteran drummers of 45 years. I was looking for a decent drum set for my 4 year old grandson who is showing natural rhythm and abilities. Checking out name brand sets for beginners disappointed me tremendously with poor quality shells, heads, & hardware. I began assembling a higher quality kit for him myself and then came upon this Ludwig Pocket Kit on musiciansfriend.com. (It's hasn't been available very long). This kit far surpasses any I've looked at (& there have been a few) for the price that include all hardware, stool and cymbals. Got this one on holiday special pricing from Musician's Friend! The shell and hardware quality surpasses all other "youth" sets I've seen (including the big names). Cymbals are sufficient, but can be upgraded later. Seriously, if you have a young person wanting to drum, don't waste time & money on other sets, purchase this Ludwig Pocket Kit today - I recommend it! I was hoping for a 5-piece set, but for the incensed quality this set offers, this 4-piece is the right choice! I got him the white sparkle - nice with the black hardware.
