Comments about Crush Drums & Percussion Alpha 5-Piece Drum Set with Cymbals:

I went into this being a total drum newbie. Absolutely minimal experience; any time I played Rock Band at a party I played drums but that hardly counts for anything besides training limb independence. I looked all around the internet to find a drum kit that fit my needs: Cheap and fairly complete. Being a newbie, I had no idea if the instrument would "stick" (pun intended?) -- that is to say, one can never know for sure if they are going to truly get into the hobby, or end up getting bored of it. This is why I wanted a cheap kit. Salesmen in stores will try to tell you that you have a lay down a pretty hefty amount of money to get a complete kit; the shells, heads, cymbals, and hardware. With an all-in-one like this, you save a lot of money and lose a little customizability, or at least from the start. Fair trade-off. I also said "fairly complete" earlier; most drum styles call for the use of a ride cymbal, which the kit is lacking, just as advertised. Moving on to the kit itself and less about my expectations and attitude, it is a truly beautiful kit. I would highly recommend getting it in matte white with black hardware. The kit does not come with any instructions, but there are internet guides to help you with that. I found one article incredibly helpful when it came to tuning, which is easily the most difficult and precise aspect of setting up the kit: http://www.drummagazine.com/features/post/how-to-tune-drums-in-four-steps/ I have run into two problems. One is that the hi-hat hardware is not quite up to snuff. I had to clamp the higher cymbal about 2 inches above the lower cymbal, when the usual spacing is 1 1/2 inches, to compensate for the fact that it does not spring up as high as it should after you use the pedal. I was having difficulty having it spring up at all, for a time, in fact. I found some advice online and it served me well; depress the foot pedal halfway down and then clamp the higher cymbal just a tad lower than you want it to actually rest. I have no idea why this works any better, but it helped immensely. Now, instead of it springing up some 1/4 of the height it should, it springs up about 3/4 of the height it should. Still not perfect, but it functions well enough this way. The other problem I had is with the bass head with the mic port. The mic port was not affixed as well as it should have been, and rattled whenever I hit the bass drum, producing a very ugly tone indeed. Examining it closely, it appeared to be attached firmly halfway around the ring, but across the other half it was hanging loosely. I used some glue, waited a couple of days, and re-affixed it to no avail; it still rattled. I doubt everyone will have this problem, as it looks to me that it was never attached as well as it should have been, but in my own case I will be buying new bass drum heads. A great starter kit with a few troubles. Definitely worth the money for a starting drummer.
