I just turned 50 and wanted to take care of a "bucket list" concern. 40 some years ago I started playing drums and inherited my dad's old Slingerland drums and played them professionally for years and at one point even bought new Ludwig?s because the old Slingerlands just looked worn out (yellow faded pearl). In college, I needed money so I sold the Ludwig?s and kept the family keepsakes which weren't worth much then (however I was happily shocked to see my old (now antique) Slingerland Radio King snare drum from the 1940's for sale for about $1200). So in time, even old faded things can become valuable (except for people ? darn!)). Anyway, about 15 years ago I bought the 1st generation Roland electronic drums and loved the sound but hated the look. About 5 years ago I upgraded the computer brain to the V-Drums module but still hated the look of the little rubber pads. 2 years ago I came across the very nice but very expensive Hart Dynamics drums but could only afford the snare drum, hi-hat stand with cymbal, and 1 crash cymbal. All of the Hart products look like real drums for the most part, unless you look real close. For my big five-0, I decided to get a nice looking, affordable, real drum set and add triggers to the heads. I ordered the Traps drum triggers (that are still on there way) but I just got the red Pulse drums and they look beautiful and of decent quality.I'll write a review for the Traps drum triggers when they come, but this is such a good deal I may even buy another set. For a fairly low price, you can have a double bass set with 6 tom-toms and 2 snares! I also ordered the new Alesis surge 3 pack of real looking electronic cymbals. In total, I only have about $1000 invested in a real drum set with the depth and control of state-of-the-art electronic drum modules (the Traps drum kit not only contains drum skin/triggers that fit right over your real drum heads, but that system also includes 2 electronic cymbals (ugly black rubber) and a computer sound module - will I even need my V-drums module?). Hopefully this all comes together and will look good and sound great. So far I'm impressed. NOTE: For those looking at these as drums you are actually going to hear, I would rate them as an excellent value for beginners but the hardware appears to be fairly light-weight and not road worthy. As far as tone goes, remember, drums are nothing more than cylinders with heads pulled tightly over them. Tuning any drum regardless of price takes a good amount of tape, glue, foam-rubber, trial and error, etc. to get the tone and amount of "boing" sound you want. The snare drum for example needed the head and snares tightened but after doing that simple task, it sounds excellent. The toms and bass sound very ?boing-ie? at this time but I?m sure I could tweak them to sound good. I can afford any drum set these days but the electronic drums are light years better sounding than any "real" drum set. I've seen other reviewers here say you need maple shells, etc. to get good sound. In my opinion (and I even taught drums for years), the electronic drums are far better sounding and more affordable to get studio/concert high-quality sound. You would have to spend a small fortune in high-end mics, compressors, FX, etc. and then a lot of time tweaking those settings with a real drum set to achieve what any drum module can instantaneously produce for a few hundred dollars. Team up some nice looking real drums with any decent electronic drum module, and you have the best of both worlds. I just wish they had electronic drums back when I was younger....

I got this set a while ago and I hate it now. I waited 2 months for it because it was on order and they where having a special will free cymbals. Everything is like junk on it (even when I first got it). The toms are too small. You cant go fast on the bass with a double pedal or the dam thing will move up. The hi hat stand, snare stand, and the pedal are cheap. The Stock HEADS SUCK(!!!!) but thats pretty much with every set. The only thing I will take when I sell this set is the cymbal stand and the snare because they are the only things that work half way decent. I`m disappointed with this set and I strongly incourage those who bought it and are looking at it to compare it with the pro series of pulse. For a few bucks more you can get bigger toms and pro stands. Quality is so much better, I know this because I own that set too. Tried to form a ten piece with them both but I`m going to buy pro series stuff now. Pulse you can do better !!!

After pro on the road drumming for 22 years I sold my gear and gave it up. Several years later I found I wanted a set just to have in the house and I chose this one. I figured I was getting what I paid for...a cheap set. I was PLEASANTLY surprised! This set is made well and sounds extremely well and project great once you get it tuned up. The bass drum does ring and sounds great with the old trick of tossing a pillow in there. The hardware is decent with the exception of the snare stand. But that is my only complaint. A great looking, very nicely built drum set. And a wooden snare that really sounds great! I highly recommend buying this kit.
Seriously! I got these drums 4 months ago, and it was good at first, but the cymbals sucked. Then a couple weeks later when I stepped on the pedal it broke the bass drum. Then one of the drums fell off. Seriously it is well priced but a terrible value because it falls apart!
hey i love my drumset it has lasted me a year now i think that that it would be a good beginner set the heads are very crappy but once you put new ones on there alot better
I bought this kit last year as a practice set only. I have a Pearl All Birch Kit for gigs and needed something to keep at our rehearsal space. After changing the cheap plastic heads with fairly inexpensive "real" heads the drums sound awesome! Excellent kit for the price!!!
I'm not sure if it was the kit my parents bought, which I doubt a bit, but the drum kit came with instructions on how to assemble the snare stand, and bass petal (and other parts), but it didn't include those parts, though it did include the snare drum and the bass drum.
This kit is pretty nice. The snare stand isn't all that great but it holds up well. The bass pedal isn't that great either but its not a big problem. the heads dent a lot. The bass drumhead sounds really good but the tom heads dont sound that great. Overall a good kit.
I purchased this for my daughter-in-law who is just starting out. I have been around drums all my life and to expect to get a professional set for this price is just being naive. For the money, you will get a good set for someone just learning. Yes, I changed out all the heads, but that is something that you might normally do any way. My set was missing the bottom nut to the hi-hat stand, but I luckily found one in my collection of spare parts. One of the tom-tom lugs was also defective and I had to make the replacement part from some spare gasket material. I fully expect the hardware on this set to malfunction or break eventually because it is just not made to professional standards. But there is no way I could have gotten so much drum for the money anywhere else as I did with this set. It is what I expected and I am happy with it.
Well, for what you pay for, it's a nice set. I'm a beginner, so I'm not too sure what quality drums are, But these are pretty good. My only complaint is the snare, which has a massive ring, and the snare stand, which is possibly the strangest thing i've ever seen. I corrected this somewhat with a piece of string/ rubber band. If you can spare the money, I would reccommend getting a better snare. Otherwise, this seems like a pretty good set.-Mr.Buffington
Well I bought this set not too long ago, and I love it. Its very good for the money and its not a bad set to play. I put stuff in my bass drum and it sounds very decent, the Zildjian Planet Z Crach and Hi Hats I got with it are also good.If your short on money, be sure to buy this set, its beautiful. (I have wine red color and I love it, its nice and shiny)
I have never had any problums with my set breaking. To improve your set put a pellow in the bass drum to make the sustain shorter. The hi hat sounds great. You should definetly get a crash and/or a splash cimbal becase the others that come with the set have a very long sustain.
Well, to start off, I didn't get these drums. I got a Pearl Forum Series But It Came With the same type of cymbals an 18" Crash/Ride and a 14" Hi Hat set. Except My Cymbals have the pearl logo which is like... no big deal. If I were you Get the set for a begginer drummer cause you can't go wrong with the price like really.. for this good of price for an begginer set seriously bite the hook! But one thing is for sure change the cymbals!! I have had my set for about.. 2 months and I am finally getting the Meinl Cymbal pack with a filter china. So some advice is don't even touch the cymbals when you first get the set. Get some Meinl's Seriously Meinl's or Paiste's. DO NOT GET SABIAN OR ZILDJIAN!!!
well i bought this a few weeks ago and when it got here and i got it put together...i decided to make some changes: 1.I bought a double bass pedal. 2. I bought new Remo drum heads and 3. i replaced the snare stand. But after i did that...this thing is amazng...i own a tama superstar but i only use it for gigs and recording to keep in in good condition....i use this for practice and it is AMAZING!!!!! i love it. BUY IT NOW! its great for beginners and experts...but really good for practice
I was concerned by the value price on this set when I ordered it for my 7 year-old but I am very impressed. This is a great looking kit and while the heads are not the best quality, if they can withstand the beating my son gave them, they can tolerate nearly any licks you can apply. Trust me... I have the headache to prove it. Fair warning... instructions are very lacking and mounting the toms is tricky. Once I figured it out, I actually like the mounting system they use. Also, I had two lug braces striped on the snare drum (one on top and one on the bottom).
I was looking for the cheapest drum kit i can find and this kit was good. I was aware about no cymbals but it didn't come with a throne. But that's okay. The stock heads are bad but if you add rings they sound great. But change the snare head, I don't know if it's me but it sound not good. But I still like it. Everything is sturdy and very good. I recommend to anyone.
This set was really more than what i expected, when i oppened it it had small drums but they sound huge. i would definetly recomend it to anyone looking for something cheap that works, great for begginers change the heads too.
The Pulse Fusion 5-piece kit is a really great value for a beginner. I've had mine now for nearly 2 years and it's holding strong.The most important thing to know about this kit is that the drums have decent bearing edges. What does this mean? You can upgrade the shells as the last component of the kit as you slowly upgrade the rest. With good heads, these drums sound fabulous.This isn't a kit that will last you forever as-is, but it's an awesome place to start, and upgrade from as you are able to.
I got my set in today, I am new at the whole drum thing but I've been around drummers for like 8 years now.. and I like what I got.. The Heads though are a little on the cheap side, and the Snare stand is crap, everything else is great!! I am going to be adding to this set, and I think over all its a great set for beginners like myself!
I just got this set and when i got it i took it to band practice and it sounded great! everything is greatly put together! its an all around great set to play with
It took forever for my drums to get here due to swapping warehouses. The drums them selfs are decent, but very good for the price. The stock heads are horrible, especially the bass head, I replaced it the day I got them. I couldn't stand it. The hardware isn't the greatest, and the toms are tiny. Over all its an alright set, good for practice or beginners.
This is my first drumset, and I must say, I am very pleased!!! The drums sounded fairly good even before tuning! The only thing that needs improvement is the hardware, but, what do you expect---it's a inexpensive drumset!
