The down side, as with all cocktail kits, is that it must be played standing up. The nature of the beast (or beats) I suppose. I love this kit and it makes a great addition to my collection.
Extra hardware can be purchased right here on Amazon to accomidate an additional cymbal, which I have done and it didn't cost a lot for that either.
The kit arrived boxed, in new condition and wasn't hard to put together. There was some adjusting to get it into a comfortable position but now it's "set it and forget it". I play it often and find it's a durable piece of equipment. I chose the Wine color because I figured it would be more visually pleasing than black and I haven't changed my mind on that, I like the look of it.
I enjoy playing the kit and the price is primo when comparing it to the Yamaha. This plays just as good. I haven't even swapped out the heads that came with it yet. They sound fine so I'll just wait til I bust 'em.
So I hope this helps. If you don't have much in the way of space and you want a "real" drum sound for not a lot of dough, you're right where I was before I bought this kit.
That said, it's not a toy but it sure is fun to play! The snare was the first thing to go, followed quickly by the crash/ride 'cymbal'. If you're playing hard the snare might be ok, but for the light jazz gig it won't work. It was easily replaced by a 13" snare clamped to the existing hardware. A 16" 60's Zildjian found its true home on the cymbal stack, the one shipped with the kit is up for grabs for the kids. Better hi-hats will come next, but there's no rush. Good tone achieved by replacing all batter heads. The pedal is a nice surprise.
It's been used as a rehearsal set for a surf band, performance set for a jazz duo & trio, and the anchor of the percussion section for a small orchestra/band. After 3 weeks of ownership, it's already paid for itself.
Crowd reaction is totally positive. Every kid who's seen it wants one. Every drummer who's seen it wants to play it.
I have mine in the corner opposite to the corner where my theremin lives.
The PVC coverings look nice. The photo does not do the kit justice. The coverings have a fine metal flake appearance.
The tonal character of the toms, and snare are nice enough for studio, or small venue work.
I like that the heads came already on. I only had to check the lugs were tightened properly, and fine tune.
Set up was easy. I was a bit nervous when I did not find any set up instruction manual, but in about 15 minutes, I had her up, and running.
I like that you can adjust how high, or low the entire kit can be set, as well as how high the side tom, and demi snare can be set. You can also swing the snare, side tom, and cymbal holder to various positions because the arms that hold these devices are just long enough you can swing them so you can set everything just right.
Do keep in mind the bass pedal's beater assembly is your only limit to how low you can set the bass / tom drum. Too low, and the bass head will contact the bass pedal's beater assembly.
I only wish they had an extra mounting point for another cymbal holder.
Another wish would have been for the cymbals to have come with plastic flanged stand-offs to keep the cymbals from grinding against the metal of the cymbal holders.Read more ›

Ok for the price. Not much snare in the snare and one of the labels is missing a rivet so it hangs down. The box was falling apart by the time it arrived. Read morePublished on November 24, 2013 by KG
