      I am a drummer and got this set for my Grandson. As I put it together I was amazed at the quality for the price paid. Realize that it is not a professional set of drums, and is made for kids. That being said, they are chromed nicely, no sharp edges. The lugs and bolts are threaded well. The shells are laminated wood, and finished very well. The stands and tom mounts have locks just like the larger sets. The bass legs are an octagon no slip design which keeps them in place. The hardware is pretty heavy for this size set. The snare drum has a functioning adjustable throw off that actually takes the snares away from the bottom head. The bass pedal and the hi-hat pedals are a little thin but are both chain drive. They could have made these pedals just a bit heavier without added cost. The bass drum beater is adjustable and four sided. It has a nice spring back feel. Included are a drum key and a pair of child size drumsticks. The threads don't strip out when tuning the drums. The finishing touches are pretty nice for the price. The drum heads are adequate for a start up set of drums. They are all one ply clear except for the front bass head of course. They will dent, but they tune well. It helps to muffle them a bit with an internal cloth band or tape. They seem to tune lower without a marching drum ring if you do. This would have been a straight 5 star review if not for the one weak spot that all child size drums have in common....The Cymbals !The cymbals are paper thin and sound like a pie tin being hit. The hi-hat cymbals don't close together properly right out of the box. After just a few strikes, the crash is pretty bent up. If they would make them just 1/32" thicker they could solve this problem. With that being said, they are still DEFINITELY worth the money. It is a set that a child will be able to actually play for a few years to see if he or she has the interest to move up to a full size set. The cymbals and drum heads should be replaced as soon as enough interest is shown by your child. I would say it's best for ages 3 to 7 or 8. When their feet can reach the pedals of a full size set....it's time to move on !

      Upon pulling this kit out of the box, it was clear to me that it was cheaply built. It didn't quite have the feel of a toy drum kit, but neither was it a solid instrument. The tone of the drums, once tuned, was terrible, and the hardware extraordinarily flimsy. One piece even arrived broken--a weld on the drum pedal had broken in transit. That was enough for me to send the whole kit back and start a new search. Anyone looking for a quality junior drum kit should check out both PDP, which is DW's junior kit, or Ludwig. I went with Ludwig, and am pleased with the quality of the hardware and tone of the drums (both great, for a junior kit).

      For what it's worth, I'm a drummer who plays a custom built kit (built by George Jacobs in San Francisco) as well as a Yamaha DTXtreme (the original). Trust me, the Pulse kit is not worth even $50.

              Got it for my 2 1/2 year old. He loves it. But I had to change the bass pedal mounting screw because it wouldn't allow the pedal to hit the drum. Also the cymbals are of poor quality, no ring to them what so ever. But for the price and our use (a toy), I would say it's a ok deal.

                We purchased these per recommendation of a friend. They are great quality for the price. Definitely a lot of bang for your buck. However, one major flaw, there are NO directions and none online. For beginners, it took us over 2 hours to put it together.

                  I am very familiar with the Pulse product. I have several students with younger siblings. This set is the one that gets them out of the box and running. The set up and configueration of the toms is perfect for them. Down the road, change the heads and hardware, and you have what we call in the industry, a club set. In answer to the cons that it needed to be assembled or there were no instructions; add a zero behind this price and you will still need to assemble it and there will be no instructions. You got a future drummer on your hands, don't think, buy this kit.

                            When ordering this set for my daughter, I thought it would be a nice toy partially due to the low price of the product. I was quite shocked by the relatively high quality of the hardware, and how closely it replicates my full sized set.
