I'll start by saying I didn't buy this for my kid or grandkid like the rest of the reviews. I bought it as a kit to keep at my girlfriends house so that I can teach her and her roommate drums, and so that they can practice while I'm gone. I also am planning on keeping it my car for spur of the moment jam sessions that happen all over my town here in CO. Since the kit was so affordable and made from WOOD with decent bearing edges, I got it almost as a joke, just to see what I would get... So it comes in the mail and one minor thing was wrong, I ordered the black one with chrome hardware, mine came with black hardware. No big deal, it still looks fine. The hardware is not bad at all, Its all metal except for the throw on the snare. I knew right away I would need new heads for it, I've been wanting to try the Remo Fiberskyns (synthetic animal skin heads) so I bought an 8" and 10" for the batter and kept the resos stock. I had some 16 inch Evans heads for my Gretsch floor tom so I slapped those on the kick and put a small sweater in to get a little bit of a thud. The drums were surprisingly easy to tune with the stock heads and the Evans heads, the Fiberskyns were a B-word to tune though, but I finally got them there. Moving on to the included cymbals, they are bad, but not as bad as I was expecting. I put one of my 8" wuhan splash cymbals underneath one of the hats that came with this and it sounds much better, still not very good though. I am planning on getting a small, rack mount floor tom to attach to the cymbal stand. The kick pedal and hi hat stands are OK as far as movement goes, but they are noisy. All of that said, after replacing the heads, this kit sounds waaaay better than I thought it would. If you can tune drums, you can make this sound good without much effort or money.

The lock on the Tom drum was not threaded, so it does not hold the drum in place well. Also the Lock on the base drum leg was not threaded. We purchased two sets for our grandboys and the above mentioned problems were on each of them. But overall, the boys LOVED them.

Comments about Pulse 3-Piece Deluxe Junior Drum Set:

I am a guitarist/multi instrumentalist/vocalist and run a small home studio. I got a little tired of hearing drummers groan about playing my electronics so I bought this little kit and decked it out. I have also been using it picking up fill in gigs. There's actually not much left of the original kit, just the bass drum shell, front head, kick beater, the tom shell and hardware and the cymbal stand. I put a kick port in the front head, changed the kick pedal, the rest of the heads and added Sabian cymbals, PDP stands, a Gibraltar throne, Pulse piccolo snare and Yamaha floor tom and I have an affordable kit that my friends and I like to play. It's compact, fun and easy to play and transport and good for small spaces. The rack tom actually sounds nice with good heads on it.

Comments about Pulse 3-Piece Deluxe Junior Drum Set:

I ordered this drum set in December and initially it was back ordered for about 4 weeks. When it finally arrived (about Jan 29) I found it was missing 2 of the claws to attach the head to the kick drum. There was no information provided in the packaging to contact the manufacturer, so I had to go back through Musicians Friend. They could not get me just the parts, so they had to send another complete kit. The new kit arrived about a week later and I was able to get the parts. I had to repackage one of the kits and lug it down to the UPS store. UPS proceeded to screw up the shipment and send the package back to me and at this point I am still dealing with them to try to arrange for them to take back the package and ship it to MF.

I can say that MF's customer service was prompt and did their best to help me, but due to all the other hiccups with this order along the way it has soured the whole situation for me.

The kit itself is very small - definitely for a YOUNG child. The sound quality is poor, but what do you expect for the price?

Decent Quality - great for kids

By DADofaDRUMMER

from St. Louis, MO

Comments about Pulse 3-Piece Deluxe Junior Drum Set:

Bought this for my little guy who started drum lessons this year. I think it was a great purchase for a low cost. It's certainly not a professional kit, but for a young kid it is a great beginner kit. Definitely sturdier and better quality than I expected. It's easy to assemble and sounds pretty good considering I got a whole drum kit for the price. The cymbal/hi hat is puny, and we haven't had it long enough to assess how it will hold up over time, but we're really trying to impress on our son that this is not a toy and teach him how to care for a real instrument, and so far he hasn't abused it - so it seems like it will last us awhile. Biggest concern with durability other than the cymbals would be the pedals - they're just ok, but at least they're chain-driven mechanisms, and not that cheap-o plastic ribbon like some of these junior kits have. Overall, as I said, great quality for the price. I recommend for young beginners.
