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:

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.

I just love this kit for my 2 1/2 year old. I'm so excited with it that I am playing it as well. Finish is great. Hardware beats any kids drum set you could buy else where.
Can't beat this for the price!

          Bought this set for my 3-1/2yo Grandson. He loves it. The set is a lot sturdier than I expected. The hardware is first rate. Heads are much better than anticipated. (he DID remark that the cymbals are smaller than he likes...lol).
          All in all a great deal.

              We bought this for our 6 year old son's birthday. My husband was adamant that we buy a set with a high hat, which most of the drumsets online for kids don't have. We found this one on sale and bought it. Great price, too! It shipped quickly. My husband put it together the night before our son's birthday with ease. Our son loves it and is on it constantly!

                  Bought this for my Youth Pastor's kids. They are always playing with the instruments at church and one of his sons has great timing and loves to play the drums at church. The only problem now is that one of the kids sleeps with the drum sticks. I guess I will have to buy multiple sticks so that each kid has his own. Great fun to watch them play!

                      I got this for my 10yr old as an intro to drums. She wanted to try it and I didn't want to spend on a decent kit if she didn't stick with it. Key thing is to keep expectations low. It does sound and feel like a real kit, but it is tiny! Perfect for a smaller child (which she is). Hardware and cymbals are laughable, but it will get her through the motions of learning. If she keeps it up, we'll upgrade next year.

                          Our 2yr. old granddaughter is crazy about the drums, we wanted to get her a set that was more than a toy. She loves this set and is able to keep a great sounding beat on them. As soon as she's old enough we are planning on lessons.
