I really wasn't expecting much from matador, but how surprising when I started to jam on them, they took the stick punishment so well! I used to play with the LP Tito Puente steel timbales but I had to give them away. I was looking for a new set of timbales that were not too expensive to afford; and it was the best choice ever.Great cascara sound, excellent overtones and the rim strikes can get pretty high too. The cowbell that it comes with is a piece of toy, doesn't sound too good. I'm planning to replece the heads soon for LP heads since the manufacturers heads seemed to be kind of thin and I'm afraid that they brake in the middle of a show. Over all the instrument has a great sound and , a microphone won't even be necessary when playing in small close places since it can get pretty loud and clear.
These get the job done, and sound good doing it. The tones from the heads are sharp, rimshots come easily, and striking the side of the Timbale sounds good too. The set comes apart okay, though not exceptionally well. I normally have to struggle to get the drums themselves off the rack, and the turn screw to tighten the height of the stand ate out the threading it was supposed to go into. So, it rests at its lowest level constantly. So, good tone, though baby it a little. It isn't of the highest quality.
