Well, the drumset is great for beginners like I have heard many say. Now that I have gotten comfortable in drumming, I now realize many flaws in the drumset that I haven't seen before. The biggest con of the drumset: stands. The stands on this drumset are horrible. Toms, snare, high hats, you name it. Even the bass drum legs! whenever i hit it for a while, the stand becomes loose and it wobbles. Another thing is the stupid pedal. I can't tighten it to the bass drumset like you're supposed to because it goes at this weird angle, so i have to hit it while it's loose so it goes at that angle anyways. And the high hats...The stand wobbles for no reason whatsoever. I'm still trying to figure that out...And whenever i use the high hats and hit them really hard, or use the open high hat, the screw gets loose so i can't use open high hats. However, that's not the biggest problem with the high hats. The screw for the top high hat that connects it to the screw that on the side keeps getting loose so I have to take the top high hat off and tighten it again...Talk about a pain in the neck...As for the sound...it's fine. I can live with it any day. However, I'm not very professional and this is my first drumset ever...If i could go back in time and buy a different drumset, I would in a heartbeat. I would suggest either saving up for a Pearl or even a Yamaha Rydeen, or if you HAVE to buy a drumset now, try the Ludwig or the Pulse. They seem to have good reviews.

had it for a year now, and the thing is falling apart. The first thing to go were the heads, the beater went clean through it when i was playing one day. Next was the hihat stand, one of the screws stopped working, then the chain snapped off. Next came one of the tom arms, some of the welding came undone and it just came apart. Finally was the cymbal stand, the base is no longer attatched to the legs because the welding came undone. I should also mention that the legs on the floor tom are constantly slipping, causing the drum to fall on my leg as I play. However, I am a hard rock and metal drummer, and I transport this drum set around a lot, so it has been through a lot of wear and tear, and it was fine for the first 6 or 7 months. The cymbals are also much better quality than many other starter brands, although not comparable with say, Sabian b8 Pro. My advice on this kit, is go for a slightly better set if you plan to have it for a year or two.

Oh My God

This is a flat out piece of CRAP!! Don't waste your money on this trash...stick with Tama or Yamaha and go with Zildjian or Sabian cymbals!!!

Sweet!

By Jonny Chops

This is an awesome little set for what I paid for it! I have beat the living crap out of it. All I had to do was replace the toms and snare skins. I recommend Remo Pinstripes for the toms and a Remo coated pinstripe for the snare (tighten the snare as much as you can for good metal sound). This set has held up to my double kick pedal and fast, hard playing for a year now and still looks like new! But I don't transport it that much ;-)

Good beginners, not good for a band member

By Gimpy

from virginal

I got this set about 2 months ago... replaced all the heads and cymbals. Got it tuned up nice and neat. Sounds crappy.Bass drum (i admit) is tight. Nice punch, nice and deep sound.Snare has nice rudiment effect (or you could tune lower and rock it out)toms: *thumbs down* The first time i hit the cymbal (i was riding on it) bent it mercilessly.i put a set of Zidljian A hats on the stand.. broke it..Selling this set right now.. i don't want it anymore.

This is the toughest drumset I have ever played. I have been beating the crap out of mine for a year now and it still sounds better than many brand new sets!

The best first drumset you can buy.

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I have had this drumset for almost 2 years and I love it! It has all you need for a starter set (except for a ride). The skins on the drum a not so great, but who cares if you're just beginning or if practing. It's ok if you're in a band.

Its a good set!

By 1StarDrummer

from White Mills, PA

I've had my kit for bout 2-3 years now, almost as long as I've been playing. I baught this set because I thought it would be good for starting off on. But, it actually turned out to be better than just a beginner kit! I put Evan heads on it and now the bass drums sound is amazing! This set is great for beginners, intermidiate, and experts! With expansion packs you have one sick set!

Hmm, i was bought this kit when i started and then i thought it was ace but then i did not know much about drums, now i have more experience i can tell you that the hardware is completely flimsy, the snare stand won't hold the snare, the snare is like using a bean tin, and the supplied cymbals are very poor. Mine now has remo Ebonies on and new pedal cymbals, etc., and it it O.K.

good for a first or just playing around

By vanhalenrocks5150

from Phoenix, AZ

When I bought this drum set i was amazed at its sound. for the price, it is surely worth it. One thing i really liked most about it was the sound quality of the snare. you don't need to buy a new head or snare because it has a very nice clear, deep, and fat sound to it. the hi-hat i was also impressed with. it fits any type of music you play. Overall it is a great drum set for the price you pay.

Good Beginner set

By ValientThorr

from Oakland, MD

See all my reviews

This drum set is great for beginners, I started out on this and progressed a lot. I have toured with this set and played live with it numerous times, the snare sounds incredable. The hardware on this set isn't that great and you will have to invest in new heads and cymbals if you want the maximum sound out of this set

Review

By ysdA_fpPE

from Bayonne, NJ

I've owned this kit for a little over a year and it is by far the worst sounding kit i've ever heard. The heads suck, the cymbals suck, it's almost impossible to tune and the stands suck. If you want a cheap kit you might as well go for a starter tama or pearl, cause this kit is more expensive and is just amazingly horrible.

not too shabby

By eh123

from Washington, MO

i have been playing for about a year, i am currently using this set. I have no real beef with it, the only thing that kinda irritates me is that it is hard to get the toms situated. it seems awkward and goofy at times when you try to get them set where you want. i replaced the cymbals with some Zildjian ZXTs and i replaced the straight cymbal stand. the high hat stand is a bit flimsy, but it has held up. i put Evans G1 clear heads on the toms and an Evans G1 coated head on the snare. the snare and bass work well together, the bass has a nice deep punch to it, and the snare is pretty loud with a nice pop. it does have a slight ring to it. the toms i have a little harder time tuning up right, but what do you want from an entry set. overall i am pleased, although i would like to upgrade.

An honest review

By HonestDrummer

from Arcata CA.

I've been playing guitar for six years and drums for one year, about as long as I've had this set. It's good if you're a beginner and want to get started playing right away, but you will grow out of it quick if you play enough. The heads, cybals, and hardware suck. They are easly destroyed by just jamming on them to much. Looking back I should have just saved up for a nice set, because once you have a nice pearl, tama, sonor, or DW set you'll have it forever. I'm selling my peavey now. So I guess what I'm saying is I personally regret ordering this product, but if you're unsure about your druming future and unwilling to put the time and money in buy this set.

Ha...ha...yeeeeah...

By Magoo-5Ojbl

from Cordova TN.

See all my reviews

This set is okay for those just starting out, but not for real drummers. I bought one only for its price and I soon regretted it. I would only pay that much for the bass and snare. The bass has a nice kick to it that really gets things rocking, and the snare is pretty variable. The snare is a pain to tune, but once it's tuned it's almost worth buying the set. The toms SUCK! I suggest getting new heads, but even then you'll have to risk breaking the mounts. The cymbals and their stands aren't worth JACK, I suggest replacing those too. In fact, stay away from this set unless you really need one. It's quite shaky and has a pretty low quality.

Good drums

By summersxshadow

from Dayton, OH

You can't go wrong with this set! I just started playing drums. I've been playing guitar for a few years and decided to get some drums, and I'm happy with them - I can't tell much difference between my Peavey starter set and my friend's expensive Pearl set. Honestly they are good drums!

Pretty good set

By kevo345-ohn1O

from PA

my cousin owns this set and i play it a lot. the cybals are a lot better than the ones that came with my tama. the hardware is ok and it sounds good. I still like my Tama stagestar better but if you add some cymbals, get some new heads, and take off the large tom, it's a great set!

Good for beginner.

By Anonymous

I've had my set for about a year and it's great!It can be as good as any other set you call buy for a lot higher price. My stock cymbal has suprisisingly lasted long and when you put Evans G2 Coated heads on it it sounds AWESOME. I recommend this set to every starting drummer.

Nice Kit

By EOEdrummer07

from Greentown, IN

First off, everyone who said that this kit sucks because the heads and the cymbals are horrible, that doesn't mean the entire kit is bad. All u have to do is cope out about money for some heads and there you go. And you are right the cymbal sucks, but hey thats expected. Anyway, this is a very good kit with the proper add ons, its not gonna be a great kit right out of the box. I personally love it, I put my kit through veritible hell and it still sounds great. Great for any drummer.
