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.

We bought this for our 4 year old son for xmas (so he hasn't seen it yet). In a nutshell, the difference between this kit and the ones you get at toy stores is that this kit is "real" and the toy store kits are toys that can't even be tuned. Since they both cost about the same, this kit is absolutely the best choice.

One minor negative is that the cymbals in this kit are thin, stamped brass where pro cymbals are made of thicker, spun brass. It doesn't matter because if your kid gets the hang of it, you can always add other cymbals and drums later on. These cymbals will work fine for a beginner.

In a nutshell, do not buy a toy store drum kit if you have the chance to buy this one, because this one is leaps and bounds better. Buy this one and you won't regret it.

A great starter set!

By Slam

from Columbus, OH

Comments about Pulse 3-Piece Deluxe Junior Drum Set:

I have to admit, as a former touring drummer and session musician, I was skeptical. But my 6 year old has been begging to play drums. I looked at repairing an older kit and in the end it was cheaper to buy this. Well we just put it together and I have to say that the features and quality far exceeded my expectations. Everything you need is included (except for directions, which don't matter to me since I can put a kit together in my sleep.) I highly recommend this as a starter set for all young drummers. Just be careful not to go too crazy on it (hint, hint dad's!)

    PERFECT KIT

    Comments about Pulse 3-Piece Deluxe Junior Drum Set:

    This is just what my 4 year son wanted. He graduated from pots and pans to this, and he's loving it. this kit is very well made and durable.There are other less expensive sets out there but for me this set is exactly what I hoped.Strong,durable,nice looking, and the price is right.If this kit can withstand the rampaging solos from a 4 year old boy it's got to be tough.I can assure you it is!! He's already talking about big boy drums.

    Comments about Pulse 3-Piece Deluxe Junior Drum Set:

    I recently purchased the Pulse 3-Piece Deluxe jr set and I couldn't be happier. I bought it for my 8 year old daughter and what a get buy. The drums themselves are made very well and have a great sound. The Pulse 3-Piece jr set are not a toy you are getting the real deal and for the money they were a steal! Also to note they were for my kids but I have fun on them as well.

      Real wood. Real steel. Real heads on the drums,not paper.What was chrome in the picture was black. Still an awesome drum set for my 6 year old grandson. Mine came with instructions. The only drum I had to put the heads on was the bass drum. Some assembly, but very easy, It took about an hour. It is a real drum set only smaller. Oh how wish I was a kid again and one of these! Ordered it on Monday, it was here on Wednesday, 2 days later. Free shipping, I paid nothing extra.

      "Very Nice Drums' "

      Comments about Pulse 3-Piece Deluxe Junior Drum Set:

      I baught this kit to make a jazz/Bebop drum-kit out of.So far it has met my expectations' beyond my wildest hopes'!Most of you will buy this for a child,but this kit is tuff enough for an adult!The cymbals' are very cheap.I replaced mine with high-end zildjian and Sabian cymbals'.I also am putting Remo fiberskin heads' on them,to emulate the older,calf-head,Jazz sound.I took a 14" ride tom I had and made a floor tom out of it !I would advise that you pay a little more and get the floor tom,as they don't sell these drums' seperately.I am very pleased and I am 53yrs.old.and have been a drummer most of my life!I am sure that your child will be thrilled with this set!I just wish they had this set when I was coming along! : )
      Nice shells',nice rims',nice color and decent accessary pedal and high-hat stand!
      For this price,I really don't see how they build it!
      Great Value!

      This set arrived in a smaller than expected box, but as soon as I unpacked it and saw the quality of the parts I was relieved. Once I got the drum set together the size and look was quite impressive for the money. My 4 year old loves it!

      By Anonymous

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Pulse 3-Piece Deluxe Junior Drum Set:

      Been a drummer for 40 years, pro for 22 of them... Just finished setting up the kit... Extreamly high quality drums!! Not a toy, just small and "cute". I got the 16"x12" kick sounding awesome.. The 8" tom and 10" snare need decent heads though. Beautiful finish... I won't be using the cymbals or hardware but I think for a child the cymbals are fine...The only complant is that the HH and kick pedal are junk! Just stamped metal. The kick pedal has a design flaw and when depressed hits the screw for the clamp.... the HH stand was missing a screw which rendered it useless. Other than than those things the set ROCKS!! Can't wait to try them out!!!....

      3 Piece Deluxe Junior Drum Set

      By Lylen Ferris

      from Oregon

      Comments about Pulse 3-Piece Deluxe Junior Drum Set:

      It must be noted that the drums must be assembled and there are NO directions. I am spatially challenged, and this was a nightmare for me. I had to look at the picture online and use trial and error. Took many, many hours.

      Except for the lack of assembly directions, this set is a good, simple starter set.
      This drum set is a good option for the price. My 9 year old son, a beginner, loves the set and it fits him now. He will likelky outgrow it in a year or two

          Our 4-year old grandson absolutely loves this drum set. The package was delivered very quickly. My husband put it together in a little over an hour. It was the hit of our grandson's birthday party. All of the other kids took turns playing it, also. Our son called us the next morning and didn't say a word. He just held the phone up so we could hear the drums being played "early" in the morning. Nothing like being grandparents!!!!! LOL

          rated a 9 because i've never played or considered drums.had to use internet to find assembly help.there are no instructions supplied or parts description for assembly.
          purchased for my grandson who is 3 yrs old.he has used professional drums at church with supervision.set up looks equivalent in quality and finish.after assembly i can't see any difference other than size.i purchased the extended warranty just because i couldn't believe it could be a good drum set.i doubt the warranty will ever be used.best gift i have ever purchased on just the quality itself.store ships fast and kept me aware of purchase til it arrived
          unbelievable for the price.

            As a long-time professional drummer, I have owned and played many quality kits. When helping my daughter shop for a beginner drum set for my toddler grandson, I searched for a set that would grow with him and withstand a beating. I am very impressed with the playability of this kit and it's overall quality. The drums are tunable and sound decent. The addition of the hi-hat stand and cymbals gives him the experience of a full kit. The cymbals are cheap and will need replaced when he has progressed. He will be able to play these for several years. He already plays them daily--and they are holding up very well. This is not a toy drum set, but truly a junior size kit.

                    Boys (4 and 7) love playing on the kit. Should last a number of years with proper care (yes, kids can learn that). Hardware and cymbals are poorly made, but that was expected with an entry-level junior kit. It costs as little as it does for a reason. :-)

                    All that said, I've been drumming for close to 30 years and would certainly recommend this as a child's first kit.
