Pros

This was on our recommended list from January 2017 until September 2021 due to the ongoing positive reviews it continually accumulated. "A good starter kit for toddlers" was a common sentiment in customer reviews. Most people were happy with the sound of the bass drum and the snare. Although it only has single braced hardware most people reported that it was sturdy enough for children.

Cons

Many people who know a bit about drum sets said the cymbals were rather weak sounding, but that's a common complaint with junior kits. One reviewer counted this as positive because the cymbals weren't loud.

Overall

Most parents and grandparents reported that their little drummers were very pleased with their new drum kit when they got this.
