I am reviewing this product based on what it is: a set of hardware for this price. I see other reviewers taking away stars or criticizing it just because the product is not as good as others that costs three or four times more. My review:
I just can't believe I got a set of hardware for this price. That fact alone is unbelievable. And then, that the hardware is of good quality and serves its purpose is just incredible. No, it does not have the PDP logo anywhere, and really, who cares? I don't think that it has to do with PDP being embarrased by this product but more to do with the fact that it is generic hardware. They are sold as a PDP product anyway.
I bought this because I was tired of packing and unpacking my hardware to use it on my practice kit, but I didn't want to spend the money in extra hardware, there was always a new cymbal or percussion effect that took priority over that. Until I found this. I got this set for my practice kit and I couldn't be happier.
The hi hat stand works well and is responsive. The snare stand keeps a steel 14'X6.5' snare sturdy and in place. The cymbal stand is thin, but it holds a 20" Sabian xs20 ride perfectly and does not wobble while riding. Since is a straight stand I don't see any issues holding bigger and heavier cymbals. The kick pedal works well, no squeaking, it is responsive and I had no problems playing fast patterns. All parts do what they are supposed to do effectively. This is a great set for a practice kit or as a backup.
I have not taken this hardware to gigs but I don't see a problem doing it if you put them in a hardware case (as one should always do with any hardware) and don't throw them around in your trunk. I wouldn't put them through daily heavy gigging though.
This is a great set of hardware that can last a long time if you take care of it.
On top of all this, you get the always superb service and free shipping from Musician's Friend, the best place to fill your

I ignored most of the reviews out there because I was strapped for cash. However, if you can hold out a little longer and save for better hardware do that. Really the only thing that is salvageable is the snare stand. The hi hat stand is very unresponsive, and the spring just isnt strong enough. The bass pedal is also very hard to play with. I am not the best drummer, however I am not bad either, and I found it very hard to get the doubles like I can on other bass pedals. The cymbal stand is actually holding a floor tom mounted to it, however its very wobbly with that much weight, but with just a ride/crash on it that your no thrashing on it would be fine. All in all save your dollars and buy hardware from a pawn shop or online piece by piece. Dont buy packs.

          Very good for the price. You could spend more just for one kick pedal. High-hat and kick drum pedals operate smoothly. Stands feel very solid.

            Bought this for my wife to learn drums. Already had shells and this was everything she needed to get started playing. While not the most heavy duty hardware, they hold up very well and for the money, can't be beat.

                Got these to add to a shell pack for practice. Out of the box they look good. Nicely made. Value priced. If they hold up for weekly practice sessions, then they will be a bargain.

                  Comments about PDP Z5 Hardware Pack:

                  This hardward pack definitely falls into the category of "You get what you pay for". In this case, that's not a bad thing. Here are the highlights: LIGHTWEIGHT, SMALLER FOOTPRINT, SIMPLE OPERATION, AFFORDABLE.

                  Don't expect this to be professional grade and you won't be disappointed. I leave these set up on a practice kit and they do just fine. I would never expect them to stand up to the punishment I put my performance/recording gear through.

                  Think beginner, practice, or backup.
