Pros

Beginners, intermediate and professional players found this kit to have an exceptional sound. The drums work well together, where the toms produce a nice pitch separation and the snare is quite lightweight when mounted. From well-made shells to solid hardware, it really lives up to the quality with a fair price.

Cons

Some drummers mentioned the snare factory heads were too thin and some replaced them. Note that cymbals are not included as standard and bundles that do included them cost more.

Overall

This set offers a great value for its price and long term use, however if you're looking for a complete drum set including cymbals then check out our guide to The Best Beginner Drum Sets.
