After I put on some good Remo Ambassadors and Remo Power Stroke Bass drum head I definitely had some great sounding drums. I added a Gibralter felt strip under the outer Premier head to diminish the ring and I got a warm thumpy deep bass drum that you can feel. I purchased a Gibralter single tom post holder for the additional 4 piece option for Jazz gigs and it works perfect. Great for an extra set or very suitable to take to your gigs. Don't tell your friends how "much" you paid...they'll never know.

Overall the drums for the price was a good deal. The missing tension rods and bass drum claws was a pain to replace, couldn't get any help from factory or MF without repacking everything back up and them sending me a whole NEW kit. (not a good idea during christmas). They did offer me some credit to buy parts, but thats covers about half the cost.

The heads are all worthless. I put new heads on everything.

We will see how it plays out when I order replacement parts.

Powerhouse Stage 20 5-Piece Shell Pack

Comments about Premier Powerhouse Stage 20 5-Piece Shell Pack:

the kit is a nice kit it has a good sound and its not really hard to bring to my church and play the thing is although it is a nice and good kit knowing that im just a 12 year old kid i think that it is unfair that only the drums come and not the cymbals i read about the kit and then i saw it say "cymbals and additional hardwear are sold separatly" so if i get the kit and i set it up what am i gonna play it with i think that i shoul come with cymbals because just buying that cymbals are too much

Comments about Premier Powerhouse Stage 20 5-Piece Shell Pack:

My 11 year old son who is learning to play wanted a "real" drum set for Christmas. This is a nice set for the money and we have been very pleased.

If you aren't familar with kits read the details. This does not come with cymbals or hardware.

      Bought this for my Grandson to replace his Ludwig Jr. set
      Very impressed. Shipped very quick packaged well set up quick and easy I owned Premier before and knew the quality would be acceptable. It's a china set but most are at this level. Heads are adequate even came with sticks and a key snare was awesome bass drum needs muffled. Overall for the price it is a great value.

      This is a good set for my 6 yr old to start out on i was surprised to realize that i had to go buy a seat a hi-hat, a bass pedal, and a stand for the snare so it would be a playable set.

        Comments about Premier Powerhouse Stage 20 5-Piece Shell Pack:

        It is a great value and a superb set for a mid-level drummer. You will need to get additional hardware (if you don't already have it) if you want a complete drum set...the photo they show is misleading. However, for about the same amount more, you can have a working full set. EVEN THEN, that is still an amazing value and it's an awesome set of great quality.

          Comments about Premier Powerhouse Stage 20 5-Piece Shell Pack:

          This kit really surpassed my expectations. I was using an older Premier kit (30-40 yr old!) that needed some replacement hardware. After pricing parts, I decided that I could just replace the whole shell pack for about the same money. This kit has great tone and a really nice kick drum sound after putting Aquarian heads on. The toms needed studio rings for my taste, but the kit has a beautiful Jazz/Rock sound. Hardware is decent. I appreciate the balance between sturdy and easy to carry. I am so pleased I may buy another to leave in cases for travel.

            Nice quality, reasonably-priced drum set. Good, responsive snare. Nice sounding tom toms and the smaller size is good for portability. Am very happy with purchase.

            • Starter Practice

            Comments about Premier Powerhouse Stage 20 5-Piece Shell Pack:

            Bottom Lines:
            1. Not a road worthy Kit (at least not TOUR worthy) but GREAT Shells and hoops for the price = great starter or practice kit
            2. New heads are a given – heads that came with are Meh at best – plan on spending some real heads – FULLY worth it as again, shells and hoops are solid – some nice select heads make this into a great/worthy kit.
            I bought both a PDP starter kit and this as gifts in the past year. All in all I was impressed with the PDP kit in terms of the overall package of hardware + Drums, but if you already have some cymbals / hardware, &/or are prepared to spend towards those, this is the kit to get. The core drums themselves are truly decent for the $$ - I got them on sale for 200. Spent about another 200 in heads (Kick really needs BOTH sides FYI) and this kit sounds Almost as good as my own Noble and Cooley's…. ALMOST  Drums actually stay in tune because the shells and hoops are pretty decent quality.
