    Perfect Starter Set

    This set is about as real as a kid kit can be. The cymbals of course aren't that great, but the shells themselves sound fantastic. The kick sounds massive for an 18" which I thought was supposed to be a 16". Regardless, it's just about the right size for my son. The snare is a bit weak on tone, currently. I may be able to tweak it a bit more to taste, but swapping the snares wires would probably be good enough to get it up to par. The toms have a fantastic tone. Clear, tight, and punchy. The shells honestly sound nothing near as small as they are and tune up rather easy. The included drum key snapped on me, but I have plenty around the house.

    As for hardware, it's pretty nice especially for the price point. Everything has a wide range of adjustment. My son is two but rather on the tall end for a two year old. I was able to get everything setup in a perfectly comfortable range for his reach, height, and view. The memory locks hold well and are easy to maintain. The kick pedal is easily adjustable to have the perfect tension for little tots. My only minor complaint is with the cymbals, but they're even better than I expected them to be. The amazing shells alone are worth the price of this kit. I highly recommend this kit for anyone looking to get something that will last awhile with their kids. As anyone with young ones knows, anything they're going to be hitting better be able to stand up to anything. This kit is realistic in quality and should easily stand the test of time.

    They are excellent for what they are.

    The kit is exactly what it was presented to be and meets the needs of my 8 year old Grandson perfectly.

    great jr set

    My 5-yr old grandson got a child's drumset at 2 and literally beat it to death. He wanted another run at drums and this set is exactly what we were looking for. These are real instruments (jr sized) that tune, sound and play like their grownup counterparts. At under $400 the whole kit is there - sticks included. This is a perfect solution between toy drums and bonafide adult drums.

    I bought this set for my 7 year old son. The kit is very well built and sounds really good for a shell pack in this price range. Cymbal & high hats are ok, but again in this price range decent. Very loud! Don't say I didn't warn you...lol!
    The only thing keeping me from giving it 5 stars is the lack of an instruction manual in the box. Very easy to find on-line...but should have come with the kit.
