Many users who have owned this drum set for a long time were impressed by its good quality hardware and shells that were quite sturdy and durable. The snare sounded tight and crisp, while the rest of the drums provided great response. The cymbals also were reviewed as quite decent and provided a bright sound. In their MusicRadarM review, it was mentioned that the toms had “a warm tone, only a touch less focused than high-end maple or birch. The bass drum heads have perimeter muffling rings, as is the trend today. The result is a big, booming sound with all the depth and power you would want. ”


A few users found some issues with the high pitch snare and attachment. In any case, they usually replaced the needed parts without any problems.
