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:

          After putting the drum set together, I discovered when I took the snare out of the plastic bag, that the strap that holds the snare wires to the drum was broken. I called the service department, only to be told that the only thing I could do was take apart the drum set and return it for a replacement set. Since this was a gift for my granddaughter's birthday the next day, I didn't want to disappoint her with only a promise of a drum set for the future. I was able to fabricate a strap out of a piece of plastic to make the drum playable. The strap has since broken again and had to be once more repaired.

          Perfect for your little drummer

          Comments about Pulse 3-Piece Deluxe Junior Drum Set:

          This is a great little drum set that gives my child room to grow. (He's currently a little over 40 inches, and the throne on the lowest setting is barely small enough; my older son, who is 4', can still comfortably play.) The price is awesome for what you get, and the set is sturdy and sounds nice. My only complaints would be 1) the tom is packaged inside the bass drum without padding during shipping, so the screws in the bass scratch the tom a bit in shipping and 2) the collar on the cymbal does not actually tighten enough to keep the cymbal from slowly slipping down as it is played. The collar on the tom seems fine, though.

              My son who is 3 will usually start at it around 9 am. Great kit that I found on sale for 99. This is the best money I have spent in a long time. Previously looked at toy stores and they key word being toy. This lil kit blew me and the wife away and this will most likely last for manY years. I have purchased a guitar also so gives options on seeing if my son really likes to play instruments without breaking the bank or getting cheap toys that break. Solid construction with sturdy stands ,locks,etc.If you are looking for a reasonably priced ,sturdy drum kit this is the one. Looked at a national chain music store and the closest comparison was approx 300-400.

                        My 8 year old daughter is loving her new drum set! I ordered this set online expecting to receive it within a few weeks since shipping is free and to my surprise it arrived the very next day! That alone had me jumping for joy, but when I finished the assembly, after watching a tutorial video on YouTube I realized the material quality is actually pretty good, the size is perfect and it doesn't take up too much space.

                        This is a quality well made drum set, not a toy like they sell from a department store made of plastic! I bought for our grandson for his 9th birthday. The drum set is such a wonderful outlet for creativity or when he needs to vent, he goes to the garage and bangs out a song! We even added disco lights that move to the beat he makes. I could not ask for anything more;
                        High quality + great price = Happy parent!
