I bought this kit about 2 and a half years ago. Out of the box, it sounded great, and looked awesome. After a few months, however, the weaker construction began to show, mainly in the hardware. The isolation mounts, although a good idea, are hardly sturdy. Vibrations from light use unscrew the toms very quickly and the set seems to fall apart on its own. The wraps are somewhat poorly done, with glue sticking out and the bearing edges can be a tad rough (nothing a little sanding can't fix.) This set, however valuable, is an entry level set and should be relegated to use as a practice kit.I bought this kit about 2 and half years ago. Out of the box, it sounded great, and looked awesome.

I bought the cx about 2 years ago and I've been very impressed. The snare is not much but the toms and bass in great. The remo heads that come with the set are also great stock drum head. Alot of lugs on the snare and bass wich is very important. Bought the pdp rack with it and it looks sweet. Must get the 16" floor tom. Thats my favorite drum on my kit right now. MUST GET IT.
OK for the serious drummer that would be me and Im sure I'm in good company...so now I own a very sweet 6 piece DW wrap set. And so decided to only play it out on large stages. So I needed a gig set and got into Yamaha stage custom...of course changed all the top heads and then a used cx 5 piece was in a friends music store....so naturaly he mentioned these drums and stated Mexico made is actually a not a bad thing.....so naturally Yamaha is Indonesia and the shells are ok but the metal lugs and lack of 10 on the snare and bass caused me to well check this set out. Much to my surprise with evans c2 heads reverse dot on the snare and coated pin stripes for the 14 tom these drums actually made me a believer....I thought to my self these blow yamis away and almost compare to the DW s in every way. They cut thru a load mix and tune well and sound superior to other mid level kits. Guys check these out remember its the one in Mexico not China Be aware there is a difference in kits from the same company.
I bought this set a while back, and as long as you take care of them they will last. They sound AMAZING, especially for the price. It's a really good value and they sound great. I'd buy it.
I've been a percussionist for about 4 years now and this is my second drumset.I have no complaints about it. I do recommend that you buy new heads for this set. The stock heads totally blow. I use Evans EC1 coated batter heads and they sound amazing with this thing.No matter how experienced you are, this thing is unbelievable and you should definately buy it.
I have been drumming for just a while, but I do know what a great set is. This is the only higher end set I have had, but I have had the use of many even higher end set. I have played on a Yamaha stage custom pearl Masterson and Mapex pro m. over all I like this set. That being why I purchased this set the drums have great sound and the size makes them great for fast fills. Again the maple shells make for a great warm sound. If you have the cash get this set!!
They like to be tuned up a bit. I set mine up with Evans EC2 Coated heads and some remo rings and they sound awesome. They have a sweet tone with quick decay. The tom mounting system is super nice, works similar to the tama star cast system, but it's a little better because the tom mounts simply ecompass the lug mounts, or 'floating', and remain within the same radius as the tuning ring rather than attach to the drum by clamps and protrude out.
i got this kit last may, i changed the heads and everything...amazing. the kick is big sounding, the toms are almost dw sounding, the snare has amazing crack to it. they all sonud great live, recorded, miced, anything. i recommend this set.
I got the core of this kit a few years ago (the 10, 12 and 14 inch toms, bass drum and snare) in the black onyx finish and have been using them since and I love them. The snare isn't much, I don't use it at all, but I love the bass drum and the toms. With the right heads, (I use evans g2 clears on the toms and a Remo Suede Powerstroke 3 on the bass) they sound as good as any set live. Any set. I added on the 8" and 16" toms last year and them are just as high-quality and really increase the range of expression. You can run from the 8" to the 16" and they all sound terriffic and tune very well and stay that way. Even my wife loves the way they sound. Oh, and they look great under the lights on stage. Unnediably unbelievable for the price. Cheers!
