Just a word of warning. Some of these items are not compatible with all stands. The center hole of the bottom hi-hat felts do not fit the seat cup of my old DW 5000 stand, which seems like a pretty typical design. Also, as someone else noted, the cymbal sleeves are a small size and do not fit my Pearl or my Pacific stand, which I had assumed to be "standard" sizes. You can get them on partially if you really work at it. I'm just a casual drummer and I assumed that hi hat felts and cymbal stand threads were all a standard size. I wish there were some specifications given on these
These are the things that most often dissappear with use, multiple set-ups and tear-downs. It's great not to have to worry if you drop a felt on a dark stage. The rubber sleeves are good for a while. Save keyholing your cymbals. These are great and appreciated gifts for other drummers and at Musician Friends price, hard to beat. (Pun intended)
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
This package is decent. One thing to note is that the cymbal savers are 6mm not 8mm. they are also not the best quality and don't last too long. The normal felts were kind of thin so I ended up using 4 per stand. the other felts and the snare strands are pretty good but nothing to write home about. I personally suggest buying this stuff individually but if you are on a budget and want to save money it isn't a terrible purchase.
This is a pretty good pack of stuff. Felts last well, washers come in handy when you loose some, bass badge could be better(started to peal off after a while), sleeves lasted a while(got cut with the cymbals), but the snare cords didnt even come with it. Im not sure if they discontinued this part of the package or what but no information was included that said otherwise. The package said they should be in there. That was the only real disapointment I had in it, everything else performed as expected.
My guitarist got this for me, and I freaking love it, even down to the drumhead repair patch, I have since bought another and put the repair patch on the resonant head of my bass drum, its a cheap head, and I can't get it tuned down low enough without it rattling, even with blankets for muffeling, which only touch the bottom half, I put that baby on the mid top and it sounds so much better.felts are ALWAYS awesome, kind of wish the rubber cymbal protectors came with basses, but other than that this thing goes with me were ever I go.
I bought this kit just cuase i thought it would be good to have some spare parts, also i needed some pads. Anyway, it's very basic, just most of the essentials. Good if you need to quick fix your snare strings, or you lost you cymbal pad.
