I got the clear lacquered version of this kit and think for the money it is a great deal. I did change the heads to Remo Pinstripes, put an Evans kickdrum head on with a foam muffle ring,added some better cymbal stands and a Zildjian ZBT pack with the free China cymbal. I use it as a practice kit and a club/bar gig kit. because it isn't a $1000 kit I don't worry about all of the transporting to and from gigs but I also bought a set of Wolfpack bags (from the competition, sorry guys!) It's that they are great bags. The bass amp made the snare buzz but I fixed the problem with a cocktail napkin placed between the snares and the bottom head close to the snare clutch side. I also like a flatter sound so I use Remo rings on the heads. I also bought a Pulse double foot pedal but really only use the right pedal. I like the action of the pedal, though I have never really had the opportunity to use various high-quality pedals during gigs to see how they compare. The suspended high toms are a nice feature. The Pulse Cymbal stands are too light duty and the thumb tightening screws strip out too easily. BUT, when they strip just run a 1/4-20 tap through the existing hole and get a black plastic knob at Ace hardware and problem solved! They even look better with this "fix". I donated the high hat cymbals and the crash/ride cymbal to a church in Costa Rica but kept the German Pulse crash cymbal and use it. They are solid cymbals and are the best quality I've seen that come with a drum kit in this price range. The cymbals that normally come with a kit in this price range are trash. All in all, I'm surprised with this kit. It is a great beginner/intermediate kit and with a few mods gets the job done as a club kit. I've been making money playing it for about three years now and it's holding up well.

Good Starter Set

By MusicDude08

from Oak Harbor, Ohio

This is a good set to start out with. I play in a band and do gigs with this set and it sounds relatively well for its price. The snare can be a little more snappy, but the toms sound good. The bass drum needs dampering with a pillow, but in general it's a good set for a begginer or an intermediate.

Excellent Beginners Set for Tight Budgets

By elldemon32

I bought a previous generation of this kit some 6 years ago and still have it. I bought it to learn how to play and it payed dividends. Be warned, though, you are pretty much buying a shell pack.I did not know the first thing about drums, but once I did, I knew it was time to upgrade. Right away, I knew the cymbals were crap and the hardware was not sturdy enough for my style of play (it also isn't very attractive). And as many people who have reviewed these drums know, the heads suck, too.I've upgraded this kit with Paiste cymbals, Pearl hardware (which complements these drums nicely), Pacific pedals, and Remo drum heads. These kind of upgrades will be necessary if you get more serious about your playing and can't afford to buy a complete new set.With these upgrades, you can get them to sound pretty good (you will have to learn how to tune them, and be patient doing so). The drums themselves are tough and last a long time (like I've said, I've had them for 6 years). I've used them to play live, record, and they've survived travel and countless gigs. I've gone as far as upgrading to a double bass set with their expansion set.Very good drums for beginners, but understand upgrades will be necessary. In my opinion, they should be sold as shell packs, or drive up the price a bit to include better heads; money you will eventually have to spend anyways. And depending on your style, replacing heads (and sometimes cymbals, no matter how good they are) every so often is something you have to do anyways, so get used to it.

Good for the Price

By okidrumer

from Okinawa, JP

This drum set is a very good beginner drum set. I've been using it for about 3 years now. There are a few problems, mostly with the hardware and the quick ware of the cymbals. The high hat has to be re-tightened a lot and the Cymbals are very easy to dent. But overall its a good choice for a beginner.

My first drum set

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

This was my first drum set purchased 2 years ago. I have always been a person that likes to take on projects - doing up houses, cars,...drum sets. I loved this drum set, even more so when I began playing it. Just one piece of advice...do it up! You need to buy new cymbals if the drum set comes with pulse cymbals (zildjian, sabian, or paiste). Buy a new pedal, preferably a double bass drum pedal. Buy new drum heads because the stock heads sound terrible (the patch in the center throws them out of whack). And finally, show it some love. If you clean it every other month it won't let you down. All in all the price you pay to buy the drum set and do it up works out to be cheaper than some of the cheapest Pearl, Tama, Mapex, and Gretsch models. So my advice to you...buy it and do it up if your willing to spend time and money doing it up .

not to bad...

By texascalidrum

from dublin, ca

So this was the first set that i ever owned. when i first got it, i thought it was great. but as i learned what a real drum set was supposed to sound like, i saved up and bought a new one. this is a good drumset to learn with, and thats it. cause it doesnt have a good sound, no matter what kind of heads that are on there.

Ehh, pretty good

By KilltheCHICO

I like the set. The only problem I can talk about is the heads. The Toms sound like bouncy-ish. Like a boiiing sound. so I would get new heads. I still have the old ones on, since I dont have the money for new once. but yeah replace the heads.

I got this a while back. My brother bought this actually to play it, but I started to play it. Only two problems: 1 the skins are pretty terrible. 2 I find my self always tightening the hi hat. Thats about it. Anyone can use this set. Begginer to experts(if they even buy it).

Good Starter Set

By J-Whitt

My first drum set ever. It was alright, for a beginner set, but after you learn a little, save for a new one. I recommend you change the heads that come with it, as the ones that come with it are horrible. Also, I had trouble with the plastic knobs that hold the cymbals on. They broke after a while of hits, so be careful with them.
