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:

        This is our first drum set. Right size for a 4-8 year old, a little small for my 12 year old and cartoonish small for me.

        It came sufficiently packaged to withstand in-transit abuse, but still came with a broken part. The part that attaches the metal-snares underneath the drum to the lever was broken off. That part should be made out of metal to withstand abuse as it is a moving part. We managed to superglue the part in place and for now, it is working.

        The cymbals are too small and thin, even for this set, a larger/stronger set would make it just right.

        Drum sounds are very good and strong from such a small set. You can adjust the sound pitch to taste and inside a closed garage makes it for a larger experience. The kids are liking it and even I sit down on the mini seat and practice coordination.

              Comments about Pulse 3-Piece Deluxe Junior Drum Set:

              This drum set is a hoot! I bought it for my kids (secretly for me). Both my kids and I love it. The set is on the small size for a full grown adult, but it is perfect for my 3 to 9 year olds. Despite the small (junior) size; I can still bang out some cool beats on this set. Guitar is my primary instrument but it is fun and benificial to try new things. I do believe the heads are on the cheap side, but I will not hesitate to replace them with some quality when they wear out. I might look into replacing the bass pedel too; it is not very smooth....But for less then 2 bills, what do you expect. I am very satisified with this set.

                      Bought these for my son's 6th birthday. Was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the shells and hardware at this price range. Sound is decent and they should hold up well for many years.

                      The drum heads will need to be replaced fairly quickly, but at this price range what do you expect.

                      Bought this for my 2yr.old grandson.Never too early to start,right?Although at this point he's more interested in trying to disassemble everything,he's been having alot of fun banging away on the kit.I found it easy to assemble,the quality is very good,all the hardware is functional and well built.The chain drive kick pedal and highhat are surprisingly very good.The brass is pretty poor,but all things considered,I am very pleased.The sticks are a bit of a joke,and I've had to use a little sandpaper to prevent splinters.Really my only complaint.
