I just turned 50 and wanted to take care of a "bucket list" concern. 40 some years ago I started playing drums and inherited my dad's old Slingerland drums and played them professionally for years and at one point even bought new Ludwig?s because the old Slingerlands just looked worn out (yellow faded pearl). In college, I needed money so I sold the Ludwig?s and kept the family keepsakes which weren't worth much then (however I was happily shocked to see my old (now antique) Slingerland Radio King snare drum from the 1940's for sale for about $1200). So in time, even old faded things can become valuable (except for people ? darn!)). Anyway, about 15 years ago I bought the 1st generation Roland electronic drums and loved the sound but hated the look. About 5 years ago I upgraded the computer brain to the V-Drums module but still hated the look of the little rubber pads. 2 years ago I came across the very nice but very expensive Hart Dynamics drums but could only afford the snare drum, hi-hat stand with cymbal, and 1 crash cymbal. All of the Hart products look like real drums for the most part, unless you look real close. For my big five-0, I decided to get a nice looking, affordable, real drum set and add triggers to the heads. I ordered the Traps drum triggers (that are still on there way) but I just got the red Pulse drums and they look beautiful and of decent quality.I'll write a review for the Traps drum triggers when they come, but this is such a good deal I may even buy another set. For a fairly low price, you can have a double bass set with 6 tom-toms and 2 snares! I also ordered the new Alesis surge 3 pack of real looking electronic cymbals. In total, I only have about $1000 invested in a real drum set with the depth and control of state-of-the-art electronic drum modules (the Traps drum kit not only contains drum skin/triggers that fit right over your real drum heads, but that system also includes 2 electronic cymbals (ugly black rubber) and a computer sound module - will I even need my V-drums module?). Hopefully this all comes together and will look good and sound great. So far I'm impressed. NOTE: For those looking at these as drums you are actually going to hear, I would rate them as an excellent value for beginners but the hardware appears to be fairly light-weight and not road worthy. As far as tone goes, remember, drums are nothing more than cylinders with heads pulled tightly over them. Tuning any drum regardless of price takes a good amount of tape, glue, foam-rubber, trial and error, etc. to get the tone and amount of "boing" sound you want. The snare drum for example needed the head and snares tightened but after doing that simple task, it sounds excellent. The toms and bass sound very ?boing-ie? at this time but I?m sure I could tweak them to sound good. I can afford any drum set these days but the electronic drums are light years better sounding than any "real" drum set. I've seen other reviewers here say you need maple shells, etc. to get good sound. In my opinion (and I even taught drums for years), the electronic drums are far better sounding and more affordable to get studio/concert high-quality sound. You would have to spend a small fortune in high-end mics, compressors, FX, etc. and then a lot of time tweaking those settings with a real drum set to achieve what any drum module can instantaneously produce for a few hundred dollars. Team up some nice looking real drums with any decent electronic drum module, and you have the best of both worlds. I just wish they had electronic drums back when I was younger....

I got this set a while ago and I hate it now. I waited 2 months for it because it was on order and they where having a special will free cymbals. Everything is like junk on it (even when I first got it). The toms are too small. You cant go fast on the bass with a double pedal or the dam thing will move up. The hi hat stand, snare stand, and the pedal are cheap. The Stock HEADS SUCK(!!!!) but thats pretty much with every set. The only thing I will take when I sell this set is the cymbal stand and the snare because they are the only things that work half way decent. I`m disappointed with this set and I strongly incourage those who bought it and are looking at it to compare it with the pro series of pulse. For a few bucks more you can get bigger toms and pro stands. Quality is so much better, I know this because I own that set too. Tried to form a ten piece with them both but I`m going to buy pro series stuff now. Pulse you can do better !!!

YOU'LL BE SURPRISED!

After pro on the road drumming for 22 years I sold my gear and gave it up. Several years later I found I wanted a set just to have in the house and I chose this one. I figured I was getting what I paid for...a cheap set. I was PLEASANTLY surprised! This set is made well and sounds extremely well and project great once you get it tuned up. The bass drum does ring and sounds great with the old trick of tossing a pillow in there. The hardware is decent with the exception of the snare stand. But that is my only complaint. A great looking, very nicely built drum set. And a wooden snare that really sounds great! I highly recommend buying this kit.

Pretty good.

By Marvin-Ih4dj

from Daly City

I was looking for the cheapest drum kit i can find and this kit was good. I was aware about no cymbals but it didn't come with a throne. But that's okay. The stock heads are bad but if you add rings they sound great. But change the snare head, I don't know if it's me but it sound not good. But I still like it. Everything is sturdy and very good. I recommend to anyone.

I got this kit on friday and it is awesome. The hardware is double braced, so it is super sturdy. The heads are horrible, but if you put some remos it modifies the sound a lot. Overall, it is an awesome beginner drumset. P.S change the heads to Remo Pinstripes on toms, Remo emperor x snare head on snare and Remo Powerstrokes 3 on the bass drum.

A solid value in a beginner's set

By russintejas

The Pulse Fusion 5-piece kit is a really great value for a beginner. I've had mine now for nearly 2 years and it's holding strong.The most important thing to know about this kit is that the drums have decent bearing edges. What does this mean? You can upgrade the shells as the last component of the kit as you slowly upgrade the rest. With good heads, these drums sound fabulous.This isn't a kit that will last you forever as-is, but it's an awesome place to start, and upgrade from as you are able to.

Starter Set

By AsTheAshesBurn

from Pendleton, IN

Hello, I bought this set about 3 years ago and I am just not getting rid of it. This was my first drum kit and its an alright set to learn on, and thats about it. I would not reccomend buying it, but, it was alright. A little over priced knowing it does not come with cymbals but oh well.
